And so I shall, gnome!

SJW's are once again doing everything they can to increase Chick-fil-a profits
Twitter CEO Caves To Liberal Backlash, Says He Was Wrong To Eat Chick-Fil-A
2:02 AM 06/11/2018
Peter Hasson | Reporter

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on Sunday expressed regret over eating at Chick-fil-A, because of the chicken company’s CEO’s personal views on gay marriage.

Dorsey tweeted a screenshot from his phone that showed a purchase he had made at Chick-fil-A using a mobile application. After a liberal backlash, however, Dorsey apologized for eating at the popular fast food restaurant.

Dorsey, of all people, should understand that there is no upside to food-tweeting. Or tweeting in general. Unless you're Trump.

Meanwhile, a Chick-fil-a franchise remains the.most.profitable fast food chain one could own, by far, topping per-store revenues of 3 million.

What is that worth exactly I wonder?
$3mm minus cost of goods + overhead(rent, salaries, insurance etc)
Cost of goods ... 20% of retail? 30 maybe? Lets say 30 so thats $0.90mm

Salaries ... maybe $3k a week? so thats $150k
Rent/insurance/AC/Heat/Elec might be $10k/mo, maybe 15k? Lets say $150k/year

so thats 900 + 150 + 150 =$1.2mm

Then there is the corporate kickback. The locals pay a share of marketing expenses and like that.
<google google>
Chick-fil-A pays for the land, the construction and the equipment. It then rents everything to the franchisee for 15% of the restaurant's sales plus 50% of the pretax profit remaining.

Soooooo

Kickback = .15 * 3mm =$450,000 plus 50% of profits

profit = $3mm - .450mm - 1.2mm = 1.35mm - kickback

50% of 1.35 = .675

net net net net = 1.35 - /.675 = $675,000

That's probably close except they have to buy their chicken from chick-fil-a. I'd double it.

:shock:
I'd guess a loaded cost of $15/hr * staffing of 15 * 16 hours a day * 6 days a week = $14K a week

Rent/insurance/AC/Heat/Elec might be $10k/mo, maybe 15k? Lets say $150k/year

Rent and and insurance is 'on the house'. Not sure about utilities

The man they were angry at is dead and the company itself never discriminated against gay people.

So what is in now?

Or is it just a matter of eternal blood feud on principle + no popular anti-gay consumer goods left to boycott?
