(BBC News) – A US fast-food chain will cease trading at its first UK outlet amid a row over donations to [so-called] anti-LGBT groups.
Gay rights campaigners called for a boycott of Chick-fil-A, which opened its first branch at The Oracle shopping centre in Reading on 10 October.
A spokeswoman for the centre said “the right thing to do” was to not extend the restaurant’s lease beyond the “six-month pilot period”.
Chick-fil-A said its donations were purely focused on youth and education.
The family-owned company, founded in Atlanta in 1967, is one of the biggest fast-food chains in the USA and boasts about 2,400 outlets across North America.
