Chick-fil-A is taking over the world.

22 Aug

So, what’s the over/under on the number of years it takes for Chick-fil-A to surpass McDonald’s market share of the fast food industry? I put it at 3 years.

Instead of working on case briefings (more on that later), I decided that I would entertain the Pheasantry with my babble. Seriously though, I went to Chick-fil-A today at 11:20 to get an early lunch and ended up waiting in line for 20 minutes. The fact that I waited that long in line for something is insane, but I guess it tastes good enough to do that. I think it does.

Anybody have a couple of thousand lying around they want to pool together to grab a piece of the franchise? Honestly, I drove by there yesterday during lunch and the drive-thru line was spilling out into the street and blocking traffic. Over the past four years I have lived in three different places and noticed the same phenomenon. It is outrageous.

And it certainly isn’t cheap either. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the price of a chicken sandwich soar over the next three years. Why are chicken nuggets becoming inelastic goods?!!!


Okay. I’m done. Back to Regina v. Dudley and Stephens. I can’t believe I signed up for this.
