Chick-fil-B

Start a Sunday-only chicken franchise

A certain large fast food chicken franchise is closed everywhere on Sundays for religious reasons. While this is all very good and noble, it does pose a problem for those of us who just happen to need a number one chicken sandwich combo on Sunday afternoon. I propose that a second company, we'll call them "Chick-fil-B," partner with the franchise, and offer to make and sell chicken sandwiches exclusively on Sundays. They would not be in direct competition with the other company as they do not sell any food the rest of the week. Also, since the owners of the franchise are paying rent on the building but not using it 14.3% of the days of the year, Chick-fil-B can sublet their facilities on Sundays, creating a new revenue stream for the original franchise. And for that matter, if any of the staff wish to moonlight for Chick-fil-B, I'm sure the two companies could work out some system to expedite such an arrangement.

       Good good! People who hold different days of the week holy (or none at all, as is probably the majority) should be able to get chicken sandwiches on sunday. So + from me (even though I'm a vegetarian!)

       evil, did you know that beer is filtered through isinglass obtained from the swim-bladder of sturgeon?

       [po]- No, I didn't know that. Fortunately, I've never been a big fan of beer.

       This place where you live, the only purveyor of chicken sandwiches there is Chick-fil-A? Even out here in the wild west I can get chicken breast filet sandwiches at Wendy's, etc. (Though I will admit that Chick-fil-A is the best)   

       While they may not be in direct competition with company "A", they would apparently be in conflict with the principles of company "A".   

       Having worked in fast food at one time, I can say that it was bad enough to have "day shift" vs. "night shift" issues. I wouldn't want any part of "Chicken Co. A" vs. "Chicken Co. B".

       //"night shift" issues//

That can be solved with Chick-Fil-C. Now if only there was a place that sold chicken sandwiches on Christmas Day...

       Dave Thomas late founder of Wendy's worked at the first Chic-fil-A as a young'un.

       Actually, he worked at Kentucky Fried Chicken.

       [sartep]- I don't think Chick-fil-a has been around long enough for that.I don't remember it existing until the mid 90's.

       /Now if only there was a place that sold chicken sandwiches on Christmas Day.../   

       Turki-Fil-A. Also, see link.

       Nice link. You're all crazy.

       [evilmathgenius], you're wrong by about half a century.   

       The first Chick-Fil-A opened in 1946. See link.
zigness, Jul 14 2004
  

       [zigness]- I stand corrected. It must have only been absent from my part of the world until the mid 90's.

       "...it does pose a problem for those of us who just happen to need a number one chicken sandwich combo on Sunday afternoon."
Alas, Chick-Fil-B will only sell you number two...
