If people are getting in an uproar over a $100 donation made by the co-owner of El Coyote, well then here’s the next target for gay marriage supporters.
Roland Spongberg of Long Beach, CA is the President of WKS Restaurant Group, which runs many El Pollo Loco locations throughout Southern California. Roland gave $6,000 to the YES ON 8 campaign on 8/21/08.
Faith at http://soqueer.blogspot.com did all the legwork to find out where all these locations were, including a WKS-owned Denny’s in Fontana. (WKS has been hiring for a Corner Bakery location in Arizona, but evidently no Corner Bakeries in California are WKS-owned.) WKS also runs the El Pollo Locos on-campus at CSULA and CSULB.
I’ll admit it. I’m generally a fan of El Pollo Loco.
But chicken marinaded in anti-gay sentiment and flame-broiled over hate doesn’t sit well with me.
So farewell to this and all the other WKS-owned EPLs.
