San Antonio Just Banned Chick-Fil-A From Its Airport
SAN ANTONIO, Texas – As the San Antonio City Council was approving an agreement that brings food options to the San Antonio International Airport, one councilman made a motion to exclude Chick-fil-A.
As WOAI reports, city councilman Roberto Treviño made the motion Thursday.
“With this decision, the City Council reaffirmed the work our city has done to become a champion of equality and inclusion,” Treviño said. “San Antonio is a city full of compassion, and we do not have room in our public facilities for a business with a legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior.”
Treviño said that “everyone should feel welcome” at the airport, and he’s looking forward to the announcement of a “suitable replacement” for the space Chick-fil-A would have occupied.
In a statement, Chick-fil-A called the move “disappointing.”
“We would have liked to have had a dialogue with the city council before this decision was made. We agree with Councilmember Treviño that everyone is and should feel welcome at Chick-fil-A. We plan to reach out to the city council to gain a better understanding of this decision.”
