Bet you might have taken them up on a meal if you were stranded and hungry

Yeah, I probably wouldn't let shallow idealogical differences get in-between me and some desperately needed grub. It was a fine gesture, like I said.

I eat there a lot and I like their work ethic, but they can shove their religion up their ass.  Giving away sandwiches in a snow storm to stranded motorists is a PR wet dream.

And a massive cost to that particular store. It gives CFA as a whole some great PR, sure, but one store isn't going to see all of the monetary benefits of that PR. That store did, however, incur the loss of profits by giving food away.

Exactly. Can't say that this is a "PR" move when other businesses/stores closed their doors during the bad weather to prevent customers from using their building for shelter.

Even if the skeptics think it's purely a PR move, it still makes me sad to see that people can take the story of a company going out of their way to do something nice for others and spin it into a bad thing. I'm sure Chick-Fil-A knew they were losing profits with this, but I believe they were more concerned about offering help to people who needed it. That's the bottom line.

I'm not religious, but I really doubt their philosophy in spreading out chicken sandwiches was to force religion on people or get attention.  I rolled my eyes when the article started rambling about the company's religious background too, but I really don't think that store manager who probably really doesn't give two Posted Images about the company outside of his own store was trying to make a statement.

Eat there, don't eat there. They make plenty of money from their supporters. I hate the fact that this gesture ultimately goes up to gay debate. Yes the founders of Chic Fil A has stood on Christian foundations, but this just shows how one store owner did walk the walk. How much money was lost by giving away hundreds of sandwiches, and in the morning, biscuits.

By far my fav story from the snowstorm was the neurosurg who walked 6 miles to another hospital to perform emergency surg.
