    Chick-fil-A has seen a lot of criticism and backlash over the past several years for its position on same-sex marriage, remaining unapologetic about its Christian beliefs, but it certainly hasn’t stopped its exponential growth. A QSR report from August 2015 reported Chick-fil-A as the eighth-ranked industry elite in the U.S., grossing more than $5.7 million in sales in 2014, beating out companies like Chipotle, KFC, and Panera Bread. And if that wasn’t enough, the chain just recently opened up its first location in the heart of midtown Manhattan, this past October.

    On their public FAQ page listed on their website, the company shares that the corporate purpose of Chick-fil-A is “to glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that is entrusted to us.”

    Back when the chain was founded back in 1946, Truett Cathy, the late founder and chairman of Chick-fil-A, enforced a policy based on his personal and biblical principles, that all Chick-fil-A restaurants are to be closed on Sundays to give employees an “opportunity to rest, spend time with family, friends, and worship if they choose to do so.” The chain consider refers to this continued practice as “part of [their] recipe for success.”
