Chick-fil-A may soon be asking more New Yorkers to eat more chicken.

The vice president of the Atlanta-based fast food chain tells USA Today that it is looking to add more locations in the city.

Currently, the only Chick-fil-A in the five boroughs is located inside an NYU building in Greenwich Village.

But New Yorkers who spoke with NY1 say they are concerned about Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy's opposition to gay marriage.

"I wouldn't go there because I'm pro-LGBT. But other than that I don't really know anything, I just know they're anti-gay," said one New Yorker.

"I just think that homophobia is absolutely absurd and there's no place for it in this world," said another New Yorker.

Cathy's comments on gay marriage in 2012 led to a backlash, with the mayors of Boston and San Francisco saying the chain would not be welcome in those cities.
