Every day, but Sunday, is a big day for the Chick-Fil-A restaurant chain. Wednesday, could be even bigger.

Protestors and supporters, alike, plan to gather around the restaurants, Wednesday, after comments made by the company president, supporting traditional marriage.

Locally, reportedly, supporters plan to stand outside the restaurant on E. 120th Ave., in Northglenn, Wednesday at 11 a.m.  A half-hour later, protestors plan to gather in front of the Chick-Fil-A, on the 16th Street Mall in downtown Denver.

At the Chick-Fil-A on Havana and Mississippi it was business as usual Tuesday.  One employee said she is well-aware of the controversy.  "There's some people who are against it, and people for it.  Chick-Fil-A's a Christian company and the bible speaks against it, so, why not?!" says Carolyn Brinson.

A customer seemed torn. "I support that they have an opinion, but I don't agree with it, but they have good food!"

Chick-Fil-A is closed on Sundays.
