The Mercedes-Benz Stadium is opening this month in Atlanta, Georgia and will host Atlanta Falcons' NFL games. However, there is one problem for some fans. The stadium's brand new Chick-fil-A food stand will be closed on the days that the Falcons play.
Zaxby's now the official chicken of the Falcons. That doesn't mean Chick Fil-A isn't in the new stadium. It is closed on Sundays, however. pic.twitter.com/TfCIa3rz5T— Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) August 16, 2017
Throughout the country, the popular fast-food chain closes its doors on Sundays. It is a well-known company policy.
A Thursday night game on Dec. 7 against the Saints will be the only time an NFL fan can eat at the stadium’s Georgia-based fast-food chain.
Now, some are questioning the restaurant's policy.
They're *real* devoted to the closed on Sunday thing huh.— JT Jag (@JT_Jag) August 16, 2017
Not trying to be rude but why built one in the stadium then?— Tiny (@KingTiny81) August 16, 2017
Some think its unfair.
