Liberals may chip away at the restaurant’s success, but this promise is for forever…
Chick-fil-A’s CEO pledged to pursue Christian principles of America’s favorite restaurant’s long before he took over in 2013.
Dan Cathy, Chick-fil-A’s present chairman, president, and CEO, promised his dad, Truett Cathy, the founder, at the turn of the century that he would continue Chick-fil-A’s philanthropic job with his siblings Bubba and Trudy, never open on Sundays and never take the company public.
“We will be faithful to Christ’s lordship in our lives,” the pledge, highlighted in Truett Cathy’s book, “Eat Mor Chikin: Inspire More People,” began, as reported by Business Insider. “As committed Christians we will live a life of selfless devotion to His calling in our lives.”
The siblings added: “We will prayerfully seek His leadership in all major decisions that impact our family and others. Our family roles as spouses to our lifelong mates, parents to our children, and loving aunts and uncles will be our priority.”
Cathy held his commitment and since he took over, the fast food chain has only expanded, not only in terms of income, but also in terms of customer satisfaction. For the fourth year in a row, Chick-fil-A is the top fast-food chain on the American Customer Satisfaction index and is going to become the country’s third largest fast-food chain by next year.
In a declaration Chick-fil-A honored the company’s excellent news:
“We are honored by the ranking and grateful to our customers for choosing Chick-fil-A, it’s truly our pleasure to serve them. Our commitment to serving great food with gracious hospitality started more than 50 years ago with our founder’s first restaurant. Today, the more than 145,000 individuals who represent the brand in 2,400 restaurants make honors like this possible by continuing his commitment to service.”
