Chick-Fil-A Week at The Christian Entrepreneur

Chick-Fil-A Week at The Christian Entrepreneur | marketplace christianity

I still remember the first time I sank my teeth into a Chick-Fil-A sandwich.  It was like nothing I had ever tasted before, and I was hooked! In the twenty-plus years since, I’ve watched their restaurants (and those illiterate cows) pop up all over the place.

The rise of Chick-Fil-A from it’s humble origins as a small restaurant outside Atlanta, Georgia called the Dwarf House in 1946 into the success that they enjoy today is an amazing and unique story.  There is so much that we as entrepreneurs (especially as Christian entrepreneurs) can learn from Truett Cathy, founder of Chick-Fil-A, that I found it difficult to cram it all into just a few posts.

So next week (July 12th-16th) I will be sharing several posts about the company, their founder, their business practices, and what we can learn from their story as entrepreneurs.

Look Out for These Posts This Week

Below is a list of posts inspired by Chick-Fil-A and its founder Truett Cathy.

Because of time constraints there were some additional posts that did not make it into Chick-Fil-A Week, but look for them and other Chick-Fil-A posts soon.

Are You a Chick-Fil-A Fan?

I love that they have a simple menu, and that their workers always seem to be well trained and professional.____I wont talk about the company virtues, which I know you'll hit on

My wife and son love their nuggets. I'm not such a big fan of them because nothing on their menu tops their chicken sandwich. My mouth waters every time I think about it. We all love their waffle fries, but they serve such a huge portion that we have started splitting an order. Not that any of us can't easily finish an order off by ourselves, but our waistlines can't afford it any longer.

Yes, I will definitely be talking about their virtues. There are a few posts that surprised me though.
