This explains one of the reasons I will not eat at this place…
I firmly believe in the separation of Church and Chicken.
The other reason I won’t eat at this place is their nasty, greasy food….
Interesting article from Forbes.com:
“We tell applicants, ‘If you don’t intend to be here for life, you needn’t apply,’” says Cathy, who opened his first restaurant in 1946.
That’s not the only company mandate. Chick-fil-A’s corporate mission, as stated on a plaque at company headquarters (and by Cathy), is to “glorify God.” It is the only national fast-food chain that closes on Sunday so operators can go to church and spend time with their families; franchisees who don’t go along with the rule risk having their contracts terminated. Company meetings and retreats include prayers, and the company encourages franchisees to market their restaurants through church groups. Howe Rice, a franchisee in Glen Allen, Va., hosts a Bible study group in one of his two Chick-fil-A restaurants every Tuesday. He offers a free breakfast to all who attend. “You don’t have to be a Christian to work at Chick-fil-A, but we ask you to base your business on biblical principles because they work,” says Cathy.
