Group Encourages Participation in Arkansas Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day


On Friday, Family Council President Jerry Cox thanked former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee’s decision to spearhead a nationwide Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, which will take place all day Wednesday, August 1.

“I want to thank my friend, Governor Huckabee, for using his influence to amass national support for Chick-fil-A,” Cox said. “They have been viciously attacked simply because their President and COO, Dan Cathy, publicly reaffirmed his company’s Christian principles. We are encouraging Arkansans to eat at the nearest Chick-fil-A on August first to show support for this great American company. We are also asking folks to write a note of appreciation to Chick-fil-A at Every note that we collect will be delivered to each restaurant in Arkansas and to the corporate office in Atlanta. These simple actions will show Chick-fil-A that they are appreciated. In the end, we hope that their strong stand for Christian values will encourage other businesses to do the same.
