Chick-fil-A will expand in New York City this year, according to a report in USA Today. "If we can't do it in New York, we have no business going anywhere else," Chick-fil-A vice president of design and innovation Woody Faulk told the paper. Currently, the only Chick-fil-A in NYC is in the Weinstein residence hall at NYU. The chain will open 108 new restaurants throughout the U.S. in 2014. CEO Dan Cathy has apologized for his comments. A rep for Chick-fil-A didn't return calls for comment.
