For military members who couldn’t get tickets to the Army-Navy game, Chick-fil-A had a great solution.
The franchise famous for their tasty fried chicken sandwiches opened a pop-up restaurant in Philly for military members, veterans, and their families to watch the big game.The pop-up restaurant had a special menu and also had games and other entertainment.
The company’s press release reads:
Chick-fil-A is proud to support and honor the men and women in the military and their families who have served, are serving, and will serve our country.
The Chick-fil-A pop-up restaurant is designed to bring fans of rival football teams together by creating a shared table. Members of the military will attend the event to participate in spirited competition, a shared meal and a watch party.
Other activities include a card writing station to show military appreciation, giveaways, food and much more. Chick-fil-A will also be flying in Army and Navy veterans nominated by local franchise Operators located across the country to attend the pre-game ceremonies and the game.
The company’s founder, Truett Cathy, was a World War II veteran. Chick-fil-A also employs over 120,000 veterans. Being pro-military is a longstanding tradition for the company.
