Chick-fil-A’s Food Truck Stirs Debate, But Not About New Regs

The burgeoning D.C. food truck scene has generated a ton of debate of late, mostly about how the city should regulate the expanding fleet of mobile eats vendors.

Likewise, the news that national fast-food chain Chick-fil-A will soon launch its own D.C. food truck has also sparked some intense rhetoric.

This time, though, the banter has nothing to do with parking or sales tax or "vending development zones" or anything of that nature.

Instead, D.C. foodies are in an uproar about the company's apparent politics, primarily in regard to gay rights. (Read food scribe David Hagedorn's thoughts here; Dino owner Dean Gold, meanwhile, chimes in here.)

The abrupt shift in dialogue from waffle fries on wheels to the country's never-ending culture wars is not entirely surprising -- this is Washington, after all.

Young & Hungry has reached out to Chick-fil-A for comment. Or, in the alternative, more info on the food truck. In the meanwhile, stick your thoughts in the comments.

Chick-fil-A’s Food Truck Stirs Debate, But Nothing To Do New Regs was originally published by Washington City Paper on March 26, 2012.
