Chick-fil-A apologizes after misleading email to customers

Popular chicken chain, Chick-Fil-A, may have confused hundreds of fans by sending out a misleading email.

In an attempt to celebrate National Sandwich Day, the store called for customers to order their chicken sandwich on Nov. 3, which happens to be on a Sunday this year.

A new study shows America's best-rated fast-food restaurant might not be doing too well in the 'fast' food department in comparison to its peers.

Since they are famous for being closed on Sunday, customers would not be able to indulge.

Chick-Fil-A eventually corrected the error by sending another email apologizing for the confusion.

Popular competitor, Popeyes poked fun at the company, saying they are always open, seven days a week.

Popeye's even announced that their famous chicken sandwich would be back on that same Sunday.
