Chick-fil-A said Sept. 14 that it no longer plans to open a restaurant in the San Antonio airport, even though the Texas city relented after more than a year of legal wrangling.
The dispute between the restaurant chain and the city began in March 2019 when some city council members opposed Chick-fil-A getting a spot at the airport, citing donations made by company owners to anti-LGBTQ causes.
“While we are not pursuing a location in the San Antonio airport at this time, we are grateful for the opportunity to serve San Antonians in our 32 existing restaurants,” Chick-fil-A said in a statement.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton praised the agreement. Republican Gov. Greg Abbott signed a bill in 2019 in defense of Chick-fil-A and religious freedom.
