A Chick-fil-A restaurant in Pennsylvania says that unaccompanied minors are no longer allowed to dine in their establishment after unruly "children and teenagers" continued to cause disruptions.
A Royersford, Pennsylvania, Chick-fil-A said the new policy was prompted by rowdy minors disrespecting employees and vandalizing their establishment after being dropped off by parents on the weekend.
"While we love being a community restaurant and serving guests of all ages, some issues need to be addressed," the FaceBook post explained before giving specific "unacceptable behaviors" employees had to deal with.
Some children and teens engaged in loud conversations with "a lot of explicit language," cursed at and mocked staff, vandalized property, stole decor and walked through the drive-thru lanes, the post claimed.
"We are a family-friendly restaurant where this is not tolerated," the Chick-fil-A branch warned.

"As you can imagine, this is not a pleasant experience," the post went on. "We want to provide a comfortable and safe environment for our guests and our staff, and also to protect our building. Therefore, we cannot allow this to continue. As a result, to dine in our restaurant, anyone under the age of 16 is required to be accompanied by an adult."
Unaccompanied minors can still purchase food, the branch said, but have to take it to go.
The store went on to apologize to well-behaved teens who are being affected by the new rule and said that it is not blaming parents for their kids' behavior but can no longer tolerate it in their establishment.
"Parents, we are not blaming you. Children and teens are learning to navigate the world free from supervision and often push the boundaries. We simply can’t let them push those boundaries anymore at our restaurant. We encourage you to talk to your children and ask about behaviors they have seen and perhaps participated in," it went on.
