Chick-fil-A reports record profits on "appreciation day"

Lines at Chick-fil-A restaurants were long even late into Wednesday evening.

Customers beat all expectations for the unofficial Chick-fil-A appreciation day. The day was set up by former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, not by the restaurant chain.{}

The company's Executive Vice President says it was a record-setting day, but that was{}as far as he would{}go. No exact sales numbers will be released.

On Friday,{}gay rights activists have called for "national same-sex kiss day" at Chick-fil-A.
