Chick-fil-A says it’s ‘changing our community through chicken,” but Stamford isn’t convinced

Chick-fil-A’s bid to set up shop in Stamford has been met with opposition by zoning board members and residents, the Stamford Advocate reports. The chain hopes to secure a zoning-code text change that would allow it to open a franchise in an area where drive-through restaurants aren’t allowed currently. But a “two-hour charm offensive” — and a restaurant rep’s claim that the franchise is all about “changing our community through chicken” — wasn’t enough to assuage concerns that the new eatery would increase traffic congestion in the area. [Stamford Advocate]
