Chick-fil-A is a fast food restaurant chain headquartered in College Park, Georgia, United States that specializes in chicken entreesand is known for promoting the company’s vision of Christian values. Though long associated with the southern United States, the chain has expanded into more of the country . As of December 2010[update], the chain has 1,539 locations in 39 U.S. states and the District of Columbia.
The chain is famous for being closed on Sundays. In an interview with ABC News’s Nightline, Dan Cathy (son of company owner S. Truett Cathy) told Vicki Mabrey the origin of that company decision. His father, Truett Cathy, the founder of Chick-fil-A, opened his first restaurant on a Tuesday and “by the time Sunday came, he was just worn out. And Sunday was not a big trading day, anyway, at the time. So he was closed that first Sunday and we’ve been closed ever since. He figured if he didn’t like working on Sundays, that other people didn’t either.” Cathy quoted his father Truett as saying ” ‘I don’t want to ask people to do that what I am not willing to do myself.'” Chick-fil-A had historically been identified with shopping malls, as the majority of its first locations were in their food courts. However, the first freestanding location was opened in 1986, and most new store openings today are as well. This is emphasized by the fact that the chain now has over 800 such units. It also has over two dozen drive-through-only locations. There are also restaurants in universities, hospitals, and airports through licensing agreements.
