Just what I am looking for on the strip, not.

I honestly do not get the whole Chick Fil A deal.  I have eaten there a few times and it is OK but not something I would flock to like it seems people do.

Haha.."flock to"...

I'm not a big fan of their food, but I don't hate it either. It's fairly expensive - but I've never had a bad experience there, the drive thru (even with long lines) moves fast and efficient. So, I think most people are there because of that? My preference on fast food chicken is KFC or Popeye's because I can get potatoes and gravy...I love dipping my chicken into gravy...my kids however hate Popeye's so I have to eat that alone.

My people!  I always fell in the minority on their food, but I do appreciate their service and employee training.

I live in a city with CFA right across from Popeyes, I like Popeyes food better but with 3-4 cars in the Popeyes drive through it takes 45+ minutes to get through. at chickfila I think our location usually does 80+ vehicles in that same 45 minutes. So count me in the it's the service/speed not the food group. the KFC's in my city seem to be just clean enough to not be shutdown for health code violations.

I think the only thing keeping KFC afloat is the Chinese market, apparently its huge over there.

KFC is huge in the UK where I live too. They are everywhere. KFC and McDonald's are the 2 dominant US chains here. Five Guys is here too (And just as expensive!) and they've just opened a few Taco Bell, Wendy's and Popeye's restaurants.

I will say that I didn't much like KFC food in the US. I preferred Popeye's. But the breading and all is different here in the UK and I really like it.

My Popeyes is very efficient. Never spent more than a few minutes in line and like yours is directly across the road from CFA. I never got the CFL thing either. Prefer me a spicy Popeyes any day if I'm in a hurry but their bone in spicy chicken is addictive. Glad I am 20 minutes away.
