Assemblyman Lawler and Schmitt Send Letter to Thruway Authority Supporting Chick-Fil-A at Thruway Travel Plazas



PEARL RIVER, NY – Rockland County Assemblyman Mike Lawler and Colin J. Schmitt and other Members of the Assembly sent a letter to the New York State Thruway Authority supporting the newly announced renovation of all travel plazas/rest areas including the addition of Chick-fil-A restaurants.


Full text of letter:

July 13, 2021

Matthew J. Driscoll, Executive Director
NYS Thruway Authority
via email

Dear Executive Director Driscoll:

Recently it was announced that the first phase of a statewide privately funded $300 million dollar Thruway travel plaza/rest area renovation project will begin. The news was widely applauded and welcomed, especially with the disclosure that numerous new restaurant and dining options will be included for Thruway travelers and area residents.

We are contacting you to express our support for the decision to include Chick-fil-A as an additional dining option.

Chick-fil-A has been ranked as America’s top fast-food restaurant for the seventh year in a row by The American Customer Satisfaction Index. Also, a Harris poll has found that for the sixth year in a row Americans have ranked Chick-fil-A the top chicken restaurant in the country.

Its food is extremely popular, generating business and attention within wide ranges of its locations, and Chick-fil-A is known for great customer service.

The company is also well regarded for its treatment of employees, considering them like family, and guaranteeing every Sunday off for each employee and operator.

While some of our colleagues in the State Legislature have attempted to recast your decision in an ideological context to advance their own political agendas, rest assured that the decision to add Chick-fil-A has broad public support and has generated excitement among both our constituents and Thruway travelers.

If you have any questions or we can be of any further assistance please do not hesitate to call 845-469-6929.
