Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Are you interested in what the behind-the-scenes of a bigoted, anti-gay business operation looks like? Well, you're in luck! Chick-Fil-A is now offering tours of its kitchens to anyone who's interested.

According to Ad Age, the look-sees will be available at most of the chain's 1,700 locations. That means that you can find out exactly how your delicious chicken sandwich or nuggets are made. (Hint: They are dipped in a shitload of frying oil, then fed a steady stream of homophobia.)

Consumerist spoke to a representative from the company and found out that the tours will begin on April 29, to coincide with the launch of the company's salads.

The rep suggested getting in touch with your local chain to set up a tour, if you're interested:

“We suggest that customers contact their local Chick-fil-A to determine if they have predetermined tour times or if they can simply come in at any time. However, we have asked that all of our restaurants be tour ready at a customer’s request.”

Not all locations will be required to participate in the festivities, including those at airports, business parks and college campuses.
