I have enjoyed Chick-fil-A's products for almost 30 years now. The first Chick-fil-A I ever saw was located in the Regency Mall (now closed) in Augusta, GA. Ever since I have always considered them to have the best fast food available anywhere. I found it odd at first that they weren't open on Sundays. Even back then I thought 'Well, that won't last. As they get bigger and more successful someone will probably put a stop to that.' Now, here it is decades later and they still don't do business on Sundays. As to why, here it is from their own FAQ at their website:
Q: What is the Chick-fil-A. Inc.'s corporate address and phone number?
A: Mailing Address:
5200 Buffington Road
Atlanta, GA 30349-2998
1-866-232-2040 (customer feedback line).
Q: What is the Mission Statement of Chick-fil-A?
A: Be America's best quick-service restaurant.
Q: What is the Corporate Purpose of Chick-fil-A, Inc.?
A: To glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that is entrusted to us. To have a positive influence on all who come in contact with Chick-fil-A.
Q: Why is Chick-fil-A closed on Sunday?
A: Our founder, Truett Cathy, made the decision to close on Sundays in 1946 when he opened his first restaurant in Hapeville, Georgia. He has often shared that his decision was as much practical as spiritual. He believes that all franchised Chick-fil-A® Operators and Restaurant employees should have an opportunity to rest, spend time with family and friends, and worship if they choose to do so. That's why all Chick-fil-A Restaurants are closed on Sundays. It's part of our recipe for success.
Q: Does Chick-fil-A, Inc. have stock available?
A: Chick-fil-A is a privately held corporation; therefore, no public stock is available.
Q: Does Chick-fil-A have a Mystery Shopping program?
A: Chick-fil-A® does not have a mystery shopper program on a national basis.
Q: How can I share with Chick-fil-A my opinions and feedback regarding my recent experience(s) at Chick-fil-A Restaurants?
A: Chick-fil-A is always grateful when customers contact us to offer feedback about their experiences at our Restaurants and our existing products and services.
To provide us with your feedback or opinions concerning recent experiences in Chick-fil-A® Restaurants or about our products or services, please visit our Contact Us page.
Please understand that, while we highly value feedback from our customers about their Restaurant experiences, Chick-fil-A may not be able to incorporate your suggestions into our business.
In any case, we are grateful for your interest in Chick-fil-A.
And to top it all off now the Giblets (GBLT) want to drive them out of business! Chick-fil-A has never hurt anyone but, you see, minding one's own business is no longer good enough! No, one must kowtow to the gods of gayness or be persecuted for one's 'wrong' thinking! Make no mistake - To the Giblets the very act of not praising homosexuality is, in and of itself, hate speech! All wrong thinkers must be punished as an example to others who might get the idea that it is acceptable to publically disagree with the homosexual lobby.
But this time I think things will be different. The mask has slipped a little. People all over the US have seen the way Chick-fil-A has been treated by mayors of various towns and they don't like it. The word has gotten around. People are talking in their churches and businesses.
So tomorrow, Aug. 1, has been designated "Chick-fil-A Day!"
I hope Chick-fil-As all over the US actually run out of product tomorrow. I predict lines of cars filled with people trying to give Chick-fil-A their custom will stretch around the stores and the parking lots will overflow. Chick-fil-A is going to have the largest single day's receipts in the chains history and good for them! I'm proud to say a tiny bit of that money will come from me.
Do everything you can to make it to a Chick-fil-A near you and buy some of their wonderful food! Even if you're not that crazy about chicken sandwiches, stop in and buy an ice-cream cone, milkshake or sundae. Just do it to let people know they can't tell you what to think and what not to think!
I’d participate if there were a store near me.
I was a bit shocked at the selective outrage among liberals on this one, and how they overplayed their hand.
Rahm Emmanuel is going to lecture us about “Chicago values” including endorsing homosexual marriage.
Homosexual marriage isn’t even legal in the state of Illinois, yet, to run a business in Chicago, you must support same.
Interesting to see that Emmanuel is working with Farrakhan(sp?) to get help to fight black gang violence in Chicago. Yet Farrakhan is strongly opposed to homosexual marriage, and strongly criticized Obama on that issue.
Isn’t it interesting that nowhere in the liberal screed over Chick Fill A, that NOBODY alleged discrimination based on homosexual or other orientation? This issue had nothing to do with allegations of illegal discrimination. Instead, it was all about a thought police issue, that one must now be liberal in order to run a business in liberal paradises such as Boston and Chicago.
Our local Chick-fil-A is already working hard to serve an unbelievable number of customers at lunch time. The lines are a mile long, is spite of having workers walking up and down taking orders. They have installed cash registers outdoors and they still cannot cope with the lunch crowds. I kind of enjoy the wait, it gives me a chance to see how many locals are coming out to support Chick-fil-A. I don’t know how we could do much better than that tomorrow!
FYI, the rejection of Jesus as a requirement for engaging in commerce is straight out of the Book of Revelations. I usually don’t give it to much credence, but Holy bleep.
If you go to a Chick-Fil-A tomorrow, be alert. I can envision a few lib whackos taking the opportunity and liberty to strike at a target-rich environment such as a CFA packed with people they hate. Video the event, if you can, too.
Actually, I think that toy is so cute i might buy it for myself...
I really wish I could really join all you ‘Chick-A-Fillayers’ but they don’t have any francises here in Seattle or the suburbs. I only wish they would expand to the Pacific NW. From all the publicity and their basic philosophy, I would be a steady customer.
Will have video camera - and other gizmos at the ready for my 90 mile (check that - 110 mile) trek to 'eat mor chikin'.
Having supported CF-A all along, -I am planning on Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner tomorrow at our local CF-A.
I may even buy some CF-A gift cards for other family members!
I always tell the workers at CF-A how much I appreciate CF-A for telling everyone just where their company executives stand regarding Marriage.
Too bad the Politicians don’t have same Reverence for God that most Americans have.
I'll get a double order of nuggets in your stead. Howzzat? ;-)
Found out yesterday, our online-ordered T-Shirts shipped Saturday. Hopefully they’ll arrive today!!!
Holy blank is right!
I too, gave thought to that. These liberals are setting things up that, in order to run a business, you must support homosexual marriage.
If they get away with this, then they will require allegiance to other liberal causes as well, in order to get business licenses and zoning approvals for a business.
This is getting into dangerous territory. If we have to be liberal in order to run a business, where does that leave us?
That's why I'll be packing my Glock while I patronize the local Chick-fil-A tomorrow.
Marxists, liberals, progressives, democrats, OWS, GLBT, rainbow, and their associated front groups only have one value and it is themselves.
Love Chick-Fil-A, hate the mall. Only local CFA is in the mall. I may suck it up and have lunch there tomorrow. For what it’s worth, Dan Cathy is a heck of a nice guy too. I went to school with him in Atlanta in the 1970s.
