The left has been attacking Chick-fil-A calling the popular chicken joint racist, bigoted and whatever else they can come with. However, despite their attacks, Chick-fil-A continues to draw more fans for their delicious chicken sandwiches which have made the left even angrier.
Now, the left is about to get even more ticked off when they discover who their biggest fans are.
Here is more from The Daily Wire:
The smear campaign against Chick-fil-A has been a colossal failure, as demonstrated by its continued financial success. A recent poll provides more evidence of just how much the campaign against the food chain has failed: It’s doing surprisingly well with an unexpected demographic, teenagers.
According to the latest Taking Stock With Teens survey from Piper Jaffray, Chick-fil-A has actually surpassed Starbucks in popularity among middle-class and upper-income teens.
Restaurant Business Online notes that the spike contrasts with a 2010 study showing Chick-fil-A was barely in the Top 5 in the demographic. Just last year, the company enjoyed a full 14.2% total sales growth.
The survey canvassed 8,600 teens at an “average age of 16, 36% of whom are employed part-time,” with roughly three-quarters reporting an “average household income of $56,000.” Roughly 2,400 teens reported an average household income of $102,000.
The overtly progressive Starbucks has long enjoyed being one of the top-rated restaurant brands among teenagers. In 2011, the coffee chain even surpassed McDonald’s in popularity for that demographic. How could Starbucks be losing transaction growth in the U.S. while Chick-fil-A overtakes it?
“They’re just pushing everybody out,” Piper analyst Nicole Miller Regan told RBO. “Either [teens] gravitate a little away from caffeine or dairy in the drink, or there’s a lot of competition when it comes to tea-based drinks.”
The change also coincides with surveys showing that teens focus more of their spending on food instead of clothes: 24% to 21%. In 2014, teens reported that food was their top spending priority.
Says a lot doesn’t it?
Looks like young people just like good food and they aren’t interested in the politics.
