By one o’clock today, a manager at the Chick-Fil-A on Grand Avenue in San Marcos California worried that they were going to run out of food.
The line of customers went out the door and wrapped around the large building at least one-and-half times, and the cars in the drive-through were snaking through the parking lot of the adjoining shopping center, and cars trying to turn off the main boulevard into the Chick-Fil-A area were backing up into traffic.
The manager said the line out the door started about 9:30 a.m.
At 8 a.m., there was a steady stream of customers at the drive-through window.
The mood was jovial and smiling in the patient crowd, with worried-looking employees serving free ice-water to persons waiting outside in the hot sun.
There was no sign of any gay protesters in the area, although remarks made by the founder of Chick-Fil-A in support of traditional marriage supposedly had inspired talk of a boycott or protest.
No signs of drop-off in business for Chick-Fil-A today, August 1, 2012.
