A restaurant chain’s obvious effort to score points with progressives is leaving a bad taste in everyone’s mouth. In a Jan. 1 Twitter post, the Rockville, Maryland-based CAVA Group apparently decided that bragging about a drop in the percentage of white employees at corporate headquarters was a great way to ring in the New Year. Judging by the reaction on Twitter, though, it was a disaster. The tweet couched its information with a saccharine caption no one could disagree with. Clearly addressed to its customers, it stated: “Your continued support has helped us make strides to better our organization and the communities we serve. In such a challenging year, we couldn’t have achieved any of it without you. We look forward to continuing this work and welcoming you to our table in 2021.”
