Chick-fil-A Opening in Toronto.

According this article, Chic-fil-A is opening it's first international location in Canada. (Wrong, there is one in the Calgary Airport)

They hope have 15-18 Locations in the GTA, personally i'm a fan of the restaurant and can't wait. I think they'll do well as their quality is better than KFC, Popeyes etc.

1 Bloor Street East will be their first location in Toronto:

Can't wait for this, I fully expected Shake Shack to be in Canada before Chick-Fil-A... will CFA put a hurting on Mary Brown's (which is pretty much the Canadian copycat)? 15-18 CFA's in the GTA is a lot more believable than 100 Jollibees in Canada...
Friendly reminder: South Street is the second coming of Licks, and Works Burger is a bad ripoff of Red Robin put out by those purveyors of garbage, MTY Shit Restaurants Group.

I had Mary Brown's once, it was nasty and the batter was coming off. It was a oily mess.

Chick-fil-A quietly opened its first Canadian franchise at the Calgary airport on Wednesday. The Southern U.S. fast food chain came under fire starting in 2003 for opposition to same-sex marriage.

Wait there's more!


https://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2014/05/2 ... 11263.html

"The Sun notes this isn't Chick-fil-A's first foray into Canada. It opened a location at the University of Alberta in the 1990s.

"We were in Canada before in 1995 and learned a lot through that experience but we weren’t open very long and now we have an opportunity to... open this new location,” Dick said."

Exactly. MB is a lame clone of CFA just like Second Cup is a lame clone of Starbucks. Time for MB and SC to go away and leave the job to the pros....

The Calgary Airport location has a 'limited' menu and is owned by HMSHost.

The Toronto outlet will be the first Chick-fill-A franchisee-owned restaurant.

The Atlanta-based chain, which has attracted negative attention over the years for its anti-same sex marriage stance, already exists in Canada with operations in Calgary International Airport, but the Toronto outlet will be its first franchisee-owned restaurant.

You can thank the poultry cartel for that, same problem as dairy.

Wonder if that's a business decision based on what the markets will bear. Our cousins down south wouldn't put up with the shit that we do.

The Toronto location will also be closed Sundays.

"The chain also closes its restaurants on Sundays to give its employees a day of rest in deference to the Christian beliefs held by the Cathy family, which founded the company in 1967."
