‘Most Popular Fast Food Restaurant’ Will Come ‘In Hudson Valley’

A Hudson Valley official promises to “bring” America’s “most popular fast food restaurant” to the Hudson Valley.

Assembly member Colin J. Schmitt (R, C, I, LBT, SAM- New Windsor) promises to bring Chick-fil-A to the Hudson Valley.

“We will bring Chick-fil-A to the Hudson Valley,” Schmitt boldly proclaimed on Facebook.

Schmitt’s Facebook post came after three members of the New York State Assembly criticized plans to open several Chick-fil-A restaurants to rest areas on the Thruway.

Lawmakers say the company has opposed the rights of LGBTQ people. They sent a letter to the Thruway Authority asking them to reconsider Chick-fil-A.

Major renovations are coming to rest areas on the New York State Thruway. Construction is expected to begin this month on the $ 450 million projects that will renovate 27 rest areas on I-87.

One of the restaurants in the plans offered is Chick-fil-A. You can see all the restaurants offered below.

“Chick-fil-A is AWESOME! Let’s take him to the Hudson Valley and NYS Thruway,” Schmitt tweeted.

Schmitt’s tweet also shared a link to a petition to bring Chick-fil-A to the Hudson Valley.

Last week Schmitt and 13 other members of the New York Assembly sent a letter to the New York State Thruway Authority supporting the recently announced renovation of all travel spaces / rest areas, including the addition of Chick-fil-A restaurants.

“Chick-fil-A is America’s most popular fast food restaurant. The food is fantastic, the service is top notch and the employees are treated like family, ”said Schmitt. Some state legislative colleagues have decided to try and block the restaurant to advance their own partisan political agenda, but people just want to enjoy the best chicken. The privately funded upgrades include the addition of several new restaurants, one of which will be Chick-fil-A, is good news for local residents and Thruway travelers.

Chick-fil-A said in a statement that the company does not have a political or social agenda and that everyone is welcome to their restaurants.
