The San Antonio City Council voted recently to block Chick-fil-A from opening a restaurant at San Antonio International Airport, citing what it called the company's "legacy of anti-LGBT behavior."
The council voted 6-4 Thursday to approve a concession agreement for the airport that includes chains such as Smoke Shack BBQ and Boss Wood Fired Bagels and Coffee, provided it excluded a Chick-fil-A concept.
"San Antonio is a city full of compassion, and we do not have room in our public facilities for a business with a legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior," Treviño said in a statement, adding that everyone should feel welcome when they walk through the city's airport.
A spokeswoman for Chick-fil-A told NBC News on Monday that it wished it had gotten the opportunity to "clarify misperceptions" about the fast-food chain prior to the vote.
"We agree with the council member that everyone should feel welcome at Chick-fil-A," the spokeswoman said. "In fact, we have welcomed everyone in San Antonio into our 32 local stores for more than 40 years."
