AP Wire story, April 3, 2014

Chick-fil-A widened its lead over rival KFC as the No. 1 chicken chain in the U.S. last year.

Preliminary data from food industry researcher Technomic shows that Atlanta-based Chick-Fil-A held the lead because its locations are much busier, even though there are far fewer of them.

Chick-fil-A first surpassed KFC as the top chicken chain in 2012.

Good for them. And they have accomplished this while remaining closed on Sundays.

I have never been to a Chick-fil-A. Both KFC's left town some time ago. Lee's Famous Recipe is popular, and I love it. So do all kids and grandkids.

Went once on a layover at Newark. You are not missing much. It's edible, that's about it. Though the Grilled Market Salad is well worth eating - at least in that location.
