Baltimore City’s First Chick-fil-A to Open in Canton

Share the News


Chick-fil-A — the formerly anti-gay-marriage purveyors of bepickled chicken sandwiches are opening their first location in Baltimore City, likely in April. The restaurant is popping up at the Canton Crossing on Boston Street.

If you’re one of the first 100 adults in line on opening day — to be determined — you’ll receive 52 certificates for free Chick-fil-A meals. But be warned, if you’re used to McDonald’s Southern Style Crispy Chicken Sandwich, the Chick-fil-A version might take some getting used to; apparently, they put their pickles under the chicken filet.

And there’s another thing. Although they ceased donating to anti-gay organizations back in 2012, they’re still, to quote The Daily Beast‘s Dean Obeidallah, “the corporate poster child for opposition to same-sex marriage.” So if you’d rather not risk sending the message that you’re nostalgic for a pre-marriage-equality Maryland, you might want to consider simply eating your McDonald’s sandwich upside down.
