Managers at the Chick-fil-A in Royersford took to Facebook to publicly declare that onsite patrons under 16 can no longer be in the shop unaccompanied. FOX29 Philadelphia reported the menu of troubles that caused the action.

The Facebook notice cited “unacceptable behaviors” by kids and young teens at the Buckwalter Road site as the impetus behind the move.

Examples of undesirable actions include:

  • Loud conversations
  • Explicit language
  • Mistreatment of property
  • Disrespect of employees
  • Unsafe behaviors

“As you can imagine, this is not a pleasant experience. We want to provide a comfortable and safe environment for our guests and our staff, and also to protect our building. Therefore, we cannot allow this to continue,” read the post.

“We contemplated long and hard before posting this, but decided it was time,” it continued.

“Parents, we are not blaming you. Children and teens are learning to navigate the world free from supervision and often push the boundaries.

“We simply can’t let them push those boundaries anymore at our restaurant. We encourage you to talk to your children and ask about behaviors they have seen and perhaps participated in.”

The comments that followed generally support the action.
