Erika Gonzalez shows us the effect the same-sex marriage controversy is having on Chick-fil-A.

Whether or not you support Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy’s position that his beliefs do not allow him to support same-sex marriage, the restaurant chain’s sales remain strong.

Cathy stirred the controversy when he told the Baptist Press that his company supports “the biblical definition of the family unit.”

On Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day Wednesday, customers propelled the company to a record-setting day, according to the company.

Gay marriage supporters planned a kiss-in at locations across the country Friday, but at least one customer who couldn’t get her Chick-fil-A Wednesday because of the crowd told News4 she went back for it Friday despite the protests.

Managers at a Silver Spring location said they ran out of bread Wednesday. On Friday they had to borrow fries and ice cream from other locations to keep up with the demand.

Chick-fil-A released a statement Friday saying, "We appreciate all of our customers and are glad to serve them at any time. Our goal is simple: To provide great food, genuine hospitality and to have a positive influence."
