NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- It's been a wild week for Chick-fil-A restaurant owners.
On Wednesday, business surged after customers lined up at restaurants in a show of support for the company's CEO, who recently stated his opposition to gay marriage.
The company reported "an unprecedented day" of sales but wouldn't release figures. Many locations nearly ran out of food.
And on Friday, gay couples staged a Chick-fil-A "kiss day" in protest.
Throughout it, franchise owners and managers were trying to stay focused on business. CNNMoney this week reached more than two dozen of them, and nearly all politely -- but curtly -- made clear they'd rather not talk about CEO Dan Cathy and his views on same-sex marriage.
