The other day, I heard talk about Chick-fil-A opening a store in Helena.  I've never been to one.  On one side of the coin, you see people going on and on about how it is the best fast food a person can get.  On the other side of the coin, there are people who won't eat there due to the way the corporation handles themselves socially.

In Montana, I could find 3 Chick-fil-A's that are open.  They're in Billings, Missoula, and Kalispell.  Bozeman has a Chick-fil-A opening in January.  From Montana Right Now, this is how one student described getting a Chick-fil-A on campus:

I am so excited. Like, this is, like, the most important day of my entire life... I'll camp if I have to. Like the SUB can drag me out of here, if necessary, but I will be here until I get my Chick-fil-A

It's like the most important day of his entire life, and that's saying something when a person is between 18-20 years old. Chick-fil-A scores above graduating, getting a driver's license, the prom and after the prom.  I had to like investigate this.
