Demon Debates: Will Steak n Shake take business away from Chick-fil-A?

The new Steak ‘n Shake will take business away from Chick-fil-A because as much as everyone loves the Classic Chicken Sandwich, the hype for Chick-fil-A is winding down.

Steak ‘n Shake will be something new and exciting. College students, like most people, love new things.

Chick-fil-A just has chicken while Steak ‘n Shake has a variety of things such as milkshakes, hamburgers and a chicken sandwich.

College students are also lazy, and Steak ‘n Shake’s on-campus location is convenient for students. Most students won’t have to drive or walk across the street to get a sandwich. Most students eat at Iberville or Vic’s because it is close by. It is all about convenience.

Steak n’ Shake will accept declining balance, and that is the definition of convenience for students.

The burgers might be a little more expensive, but they are bigger and better.

The lines will be long for any lunch rush hour, so it doesn’t matter where someone chooses to eat. Restaurants will always be busy.

I am excited for Steak ‘n Shake because of the many milkshakes I know I will be able to try.

Imagine yourself eating a Steakburger with an M&M’s milkshake. That’s better than eating six chicken nuggets that are about the size of a thumb with a lemonade.

Did you know that Steak ‘n Shake’s menu has items under four dollars?

I love Chick-fil-A waffle fries as much as anyone else. No one can top their waffle fries, but Steak ‘n Shake has cheese fries.

To put it simply, Chick-fil-A is about to be old news.

I have only had Steak ‘n Shake once or twice in my life, but I know it is good. However, it won’t take business away from Chick-fil-A because you can never go wrong with Chick-fil-A.

It has every type of chicken style you could ever want. Most places sell chicken sandwiches, but chicken is their specialty.

Chick-fil-A is also healthier fast-food wise. They have better servings, and I bet that Steak ‘n Shake’s burgers are going to be like The Grill’s: messy with an ungodly amount of grease.

Steak ‘n Shake’s burgers are supposedly bigger than normal fast food burgers, so that means that they are heavier and fattier.

A Classic Chicken Sandwich from Chick-fil-A is $3.49. A single milkshake from Steak ‘n Shake in $5.79 by itself, so think about that. Chick-fil-A is cheaper and healthier.

After eating Chick-fil-A, most people don’t feel guilty about whatever they just ate.

The only possible way more people might go to Steak ‘n Shake would be because of location, but that means that Steak ‘n Shake lines will be longer. We all know that hungry college students have no idea what the word patience means.

Longer lines also mean a greater chance for someone to mess your order up.

People at Chick-fil-A are super nice. The last thing I need is someone giving me an attitude when I am starving. Watch that happen at Steak ‘n Shake, and there are going to be tons of complaints.

Also, Chick-fil-A’s fries are better than anything so that alone is why Steak ‘n Shake can’t take business away from Chick-fil-A.
