Yes, it is Chick-fil-A who is responsible.
In discussing the possibility of Chick-fil-A being declared a public nuisance, a constant refrain is that the backup is not Chick-fil-A’s fault, but the drivers who are stopped in the street. However, our laws say it is Chick’s fault. “But for Chick-fil-A, there would be no nuisance.” Chick-fil-A is the origin of the nuisance, is actively engaged in perpetuating the nuisance, and is definitely aware they are a nuisance.
In a February 2021 letter to our city, a Chick-fil-A representative said, “We want to do right by the City and the community and fix our site so that it is no longer a nuisance.” Surely, if Chick-fil-A can call themselves a nuisance, our city council can as well.
