Never understood the draw to that place. I did try it again a few months back while leaving the mall and my Sammie had a big old rubbery vein in it.
Tell me about it. I was POíd because I was really hungry too, lol. Good fries though.
i think what makes them special (as absurd as this sounds) is because of the fact that you found a vein. they don't over process their chicken like the other major chains.
either way, free is free!
So if I would have had teeth full of feathers it would have been fresher than fresh?
Just kidding, I get what you are saying. I just donít want my sandwich snapping back at me when I try to pull it away from my face.
So, I sign up and then read that I may be asked to show a photo ID to get my free sandwich? Are they kidding?
I would rather not show you my ID to get a damn sandwich. That is just ridiculous.
If you wear your tin foil hat there you should be okay.
And what exactly is any Chick-Fil-A counter worker going to do with your name and address Michael, from Maumee? I doubt they would even ask for your ID. They probably just put that little disclaimer in to scare off you "black helicopter" types.
big deal, I agree with Muddy. dairy queen says the same thing but they never ask for it, the girls don't care. stay away on Thursday, k? more room for me! :D
Yeah, you'll need room, alright.
Chick-fil-A is a loony bin waiting for the lithium to run out. I think the first Toledo location was in the Woodville Mall. I met the poor schmuck who sunk his life savings into the franchise. He was from Georgia and the company did the site selection for him. He took a look around the site their marketing team selected (Woodville was still twitching and barely breathing back then) and immediately went into denial, which his dingbat wife supported. After the place opened, the wife would get a tray of samples which she'd hand out, then she'd complain if people didn't rave about the taste of pressure cooked chicken and mayonnaise. The entire staff would begin the day with a business meeting, during which they would sing the Chick-fil-A song and pray together.
If you aren't a Christian, you won't get a Chick-fil-A franchise - period. Check the link from Forbes here, and see the comment in context:
"It is very difficult to get in, but once you're in, you're in for life," says Donald Elam, a Chick-fil-A franchisee in Superstition Springs, Ariz.: "I tell all my people, 'I'm not working for Chick-fil-A; I'm working for the Lord.'"
Turnover is lower than any other fast food chain, but there is turnover and compared to other fields, turnover isn't all that low.
Anyway, the Woodville franchise guy kept at it until the money ran out, then he vanished. I feel sorry for him still - he actually bought into all the crap that CFA spews out.
No, I'm not going to Chick-fil-A for free slop. I'll get my acute gastrointestinal distress somewhere else, thanks so very much.
Nobody made the guy buy in. Should have done his own due diligence and if not agreed, bailed. Itís not like CFA wanted it to not succeed.
Other than that, not sure what it being owned by Christians has anything to do with anything. Odds are most companies are. Although I think it is nice that they are all closed on Sundays. Fast food workers like a day off during the weekend too, and those can be few and far between for some.
Next month wear a cow costume for free food, http://media.wwono.com/photo/2009/07/10/Cows_-_face_painted_20090710155235_640_480.JPG

Who is Sammy your boyfriend?
hey, Jack what year was that? I've been going to Woodville Mall since it opened and I don't remember one there. what end was it in?
Nana: About 1981 or '82. The original Chick-fil-A was built in the slot next to the piano/organ store. There was this goofy kiosk in the middle selling cheesy looking, overpriced costume jewelry. As I remember it, this was the North West corner of the mall. After the place failed, they reopened in the food court and did a better business there. For a while, anyway.
Anyone remember the Corn dog kiosk near Sears at Woodville Mall? Only place other than the County Fair that dipped the dogs into batter then dipped into hot oil.
Speaking of woodville mall, i would love a "hot sams" right now 8-)
tm2, i will think of this post next month while im in schaumburg IL, there is still a hot sam's in the Woodfield mall
damn, just looked at the malls website and the hot sam is gone, it was there a year or so ago
ronaldo, I remember it, they also had smoked sausage dipped like a corn dog, never seen that anywhere else and it was awesome.
Jack, that may be why I missed it. the hub was laid off in 81 and I went back to work, 11p-7a, waitressing. seems like I had no time then for anything but sleep in the off hours and our entertainment spending was cut way down. went back to school when he went back to work and had NO money or time till 85, lol.
