Chick-fil-A is in for a huge fight after this bombshell announcement

Chick-fil-A is one of the most popular fast-food franchises in America.

But now the chain is facing a new headache.

And Chick-fil-A is in for a huge fight after this bombshell announcement.

Shake Shack attacks Chick-fil-A for not opening on Sundays

The popular New York-based burger chain Shake Shack is looking to eat Chick-fil-A’s stranglehold in the chicken sandwich market.

It’s not uncommon for competitors to lob potshots at one another.

But what did stand out was the fact that Shake Shack is attacking Chick-fil-A for closing on Sunday to observe the Sabbath due to founder Truett Cathy’s Christian faith.

Estimates show Chick-fil-A forfeits around $1 bullion by closing on Sundays out of respect for keeping the Lord’s Day holy.

Shake Shack took that as a point of mockery.

“Here at Shake Shack, we pride ourselves on our Chicken Shack which is available 7 days a week,” a press release from Shake Shack touting their chicken sandwiches read.

Chick-fil-A under fire for non-antibiotic free Chicken

A more fruitful line of contrast from Shake Shack came when it pointed out it uses antibiotic free chicken meat in their sandwiches.

“With crispy, white-meat chicken breast over lettuce, pickles, and buttermilk herb mayo on a toasted potato bun, this sandwich outshines its competition. And what makes our Chicken Shack even better, is that it’s made with antibiotic-free chicken, something not everyone can say these days . . .” the Shake Shack press release added.

Shake Shack even went so far as to spoof Chick-fil-A’s trademark “eat more chicken” catchphrase.

“Eat More Antibiotic-Free Chicken,” Shake Shack’s press release continued.

Chick-fil-A claimed supply concerns were why it didn’t stick with antibiotic-free chicken meat.

“As we look to the future, the availability of high-quality chicken that meets our rigid standards has become a concern. This change enables us to not only ensure we can continue to serve high-quality chicken, but also chicken that still meets the expectations our customers count on us to deliver,” a statement from Chick-fil-A spokesperson to Fox News Digital read.

Not Chick-fil-A’s first controversy  

Last year, Chick-fil-A faced criticism from the Right over its corporate diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) policy and the hiring of Erik McReynolds as the Vice President of DEI.

DEI is a racist and prejudiced system that sets hiring and promotion policies in corporate America based on race, gender, and sexual orientation.

The policies openly discriminate against white and Asian Americans in favor of other races.

This is Chick-fil-A’s real weak spot and if this issue becomes a flashpoint in politics or the broader culture, Chick-fil-A could face a Bud Light-style boycott.
