“We should be about more than just selling chicken. We should be a part of our customers’ lives and the communities in which we serve.”

It started in 1946, when Truett Cathy opened his first restaurant, Dwarf Grill, in Hapeville, Georgia. Credited with inventing the boneless breast of chicken sandwich, Mr. Cathy founded Chick-fil-A, Inc. in the early 1960s and pioneered the establishment of restaurants in shopping malls with opening of the first Chick-fil-A at a mall in Atlanta in 1967.

Chick-fil-A is still privately held and family owned. With 47 consecutive years of positive sales growth, Chick-fil-A has set itself apart by pioneering innovations and delicious products—including the ever-popular Chick-fil-A® Chicken Sandwich.

 



Since then, Chick-fil-A has steadily grown to become the largest quick-service chicken restaurant chain in the US, based on domestic annual sales with over 1,900 locations in 42 states and Washington, D.C. In 2014, annual sales were nearly $6 billion.
