Assemblyman: Chick-Fil-A no longer coming to Buffalo airport

Regional News

Assemblyman Sean Ryan released a statement, saying that there are no longer plans to bring Chick-Fil-A to the Buffalo Niagara International Airport.

Here is his statement:

Earlier today I spoke with the vendor of the Buffalo Airport food court project, and they informed me they will not be opening a Chick-fil-A as a part of their airport project. A publicly financed facility like the Buffalo Niagara International Airport is not the appropriate venue for a Chick-fil-A restaurant. I applaud the decision that has been made to remove Chick-fil-A from the plans for this project. We hope in the future the NFTA will make every effort to contract with businesses that adhere to antidiscriminatory policies, and we’re confident another vendor who better represents the values of the Western New York community will replace Chick-fil-A as a part of this project in the very near future.
