According to the restaurant’s management, all children under the age of 16 must now be accompanied by an adult.
A fast food restaurant in Pennsylvania is taking a stance against misbehaving youngsters. This Monday, the Chick-fil-A in Royersford, Pennsylvania, announced on Facebook that children under the age of 16 would no longer be permitted to dine without a parent present.
According to the restaurant, school-aged children were being dropped off by their parents at a neighboring bouncy park, and the youngsters would ultimately find their way into the Chick-fil-A.
Management outlined “unacceptable behaviors” which have become common with the groups of unsupervised children, including loud conversations with explicit language, trashing the restaurant and its restrooms, disrespecting employees and conducting other unsafe behavior, including walking through the parking lot and drive-thru lane.
“To those unaccompanied children and teens that have visited us and acted appropriately, we thank you. But we also apologize. Due to the numerous extreme behaviors of many of your peers, we must make a blanket rule covering anyone under the age of 16,” the restaurant wrote.
Youngsters under the age of 16 who are not accompanied by an adult are still welcome to order meals to go, but they will no longer be permitted to eat inside the restaurant, according to the eatery.
Management concluded their post by noting they weren’t blaming the parents for the decision.
“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,” they wrote.
