Chick-fil-A sought to clarify misconceptions about the company and expressed its disappointment at the council's decision:
"The press release issued by the council member was the first we heard of his motion and its approval by the San Antonio City Council," Chick-fil-A told The Hill website in a statement.
"We wish we had the opportunity to clarify misperceptions about our company prior to the vote. We agree with the council member that everyone should feel welcome at Chick-fil-A. In fact, we have welcomed everyone in San Antonio into our 32 local stores for more than 40 years."
Even though there have been continuous attacks against the restaurant chain, it has not kept the company from living up to its stated mission:
"To glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that is entrusted to us. To have a positive influence on all who come in contact with Chick-fil-A."
