Chick-fil-A No Longer Seeking Lease at Texas Airport After Legal Battle Over Anti-LGBTQ Donations

Chick-fil-A says it no longer plans to open a restaurant in the San Antonio International Airport, even though the Texas city relented and agreed to let it do so after more than a year of legal wrangling.

The San Antonio City Council blocked the chain from opening a restaurant at the San Antonio International Airport early last year, because Chick-fil-A’s owners donate to anti-LGBTQ causes. Some Texas leaders broadly supported the company.

Gov. Greg Abbott signed a bill in 2019 in defense of Chick-fil-A and religious freedom.
