Company Description

Based in Georgia, Chick-fil-A is a top fried chicken chain known for its dipping sauce and chicken sandwich. The restaurant is closed every Sunday, largely due to the Baptist beliefs of founder S. Truett Cathy.

Innovative aspects of the chicken restaurant franchise include soda-free and organic options on the children’s menu, and employee shirts made from recycled plastic water bottles. Chick-fil-A has more than 2,000 locations in nearly all U.S. states and more recently entered Canada.
