NEW YORK (CNN) – Any Chick-fil-A fan knows the chicken chain is closed on Sundays.
It’s a practice that’s been in place since Chick-fil-A first opened in Georgia in 1946.
But now, a bill has been introduced in New York that could affect Chick-fil-A locations at rest stops along Interstate 90 in New York state.
The new bill would require food services at transportation facilities and rest areas to remain open seven days a week.
The bill goes on to say that “While there is nothing objectionable about a fast food restaurant closing on a particular day of the week, service areas dedicated to travelers is an inappropriate location for such a restaurant … Allowing for retail space to go unused one seventh of the week or more is a disservice and unnecessary inconvenience to travelers who rely on these service areas.”
So far, no comment from Chick-fil-A.
