It's all about demographics. We don't have a large enough population in the city limits.

O yes we do!! I've asked this question many times and the last person I talked to was a Dr. He says that there is 1 person stopping it and that it has to do with KFC that's all I know but I'd Love to have a chic-fil-a

Several years ago I spoke to a Chick fil a rep about Douglas. He said we don't have a large enough population within so many miles of the restaurant. I forget the numbers it's been so long ago. I asked about the Waycross unit which was in the mall at that time and he said they had the population numbers in the trade area which is more than just the county.
Seems we are in the middle of no where which if you look at a map, we are!

Chick-Fil-A like many other retail chains have very strict demographic standards. They also only build a limited number of stores a year. We dont meet the standard that they use to expand. Its that simple. Nobody has a conspricy going on to keep these business' out of Douglas. Why would Frances Lott not want to rent or sell a property to a company that will pay him top dollar? KFC is in every other town that has a Chick-Fil-A also and they do just fine, besides they probably would be on opposite sides of town anyway.
People on this board crack me up with their off the wall,unresearched and ignorant rants. Get over the pettiness and work on bettering the community.

We can't even keep a Hardee's open. They have the best breakfast choices available. Douglas has had two and neither one did much business. I would rather see a Chic-Fil-A, Pop-Eyes or Hardee's instead of two BKs or three Subways.

Chick-fil-A won't every come to Douglas as long as the Douglas Forum exists. Think about it. They are a very Christian oriented company and the nasty crap that is posted on here everyday is enough to keep them away.
