Chick-fil-A announced Thursday that supporters who flocked to the restaurant for "Appreciation Day" on August 1 propelled the company to a "record-setting day," Fox News reports. "We are very grateful and humbled by the incredible turnout of loyal Chick-fil-A customers on August 1 at Chick-fil-A restaurants around the country," the company said in a statement. "We congratulate local Chick-fil-A owner/operators and their team members for striving to serve each and every customer with genuine hospitality. While we don't release exact sales numbers, we can confirm reports that it was a record-setting day." Mike Huckabee, former Arkansas governor and Fox News host who initially made the call for patrons to show up for "Appreciation Day" after Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy came under fire for supporting traditional marriage, said the turnout went beyond anything he could have imagined. "A lot of the stores ran out of chicken before the end of the day," he said, adding: "I don't think the chickens were too happy about the day. They really gave their lives in mass numbers."
