Who goes to KFC anymore? Chick-Fil-A has the best chicken anywhere! With a toasted buttered bun, boneless breast of chicken, and dill pickle, Chick-Fil-A has the best tasting chicken sandwich anybody has ever tasted. They are the ninth most profiting restaurant company in the world, right above KFC. The founder, S. Truett Cathy, was a devout southern Baptist. This is the reason they are always closed on Sundays, as well as Thanksgiving and Christmas. He is known for being the founder and former chairman of Chick-fil-A. He went to Henry W. Grady High School and had a net worth of $900 million. Since he died, his son, Dan Cathy, has been the chairman and CEO of Chick-Fil-A. He has a net worth of $4.8 billion. He is the #144 most valuable person when it comes to net worth. He became CEO in 2012 and his brother Bubba Cathy serves as an executive vice president of the chicken chain.

There are over 2,200 restaurants right now spread out around the US. Chick-Fil-A originated from a restaurant called Dwarf Grill. Dwarf Grill was opened by S. Truett Cathy in 1946. This restaurant is still in business, located in Hapeville, Georgia. In 1961 Cathy found a pressure fryer that could cook a chicken sandwich in the same amount of time that it would take to cook a fast-food hamburger. After this, Cathy opened Chick-Fil-A, Inc. with the company slogan “We didn’t invent the chicken, just the chicken sandwich.” The first Chick-Fil-A ever opened was located in the food court of the Greenbriar Mall. In October 2015 Chick-Fil-A, Inc. opened a three story 5,000 square foot restaurant in Manhattan. Since 1997, the Atlanta-Based company has sponsored the Peach Bowl, which is an annual college football game.

The newer and more known slogan, “Eat Mor Chikin” was created by The Richards Group in 1995. Most advertisements have a black and white cow holding up a sign with “Eat Mor Chikin” in all capital letters. On January 1, 2004, their ads with cows were temporarily stopped because there was an illness called “mad cow disease.” They did this because they did not want to seem insensitive or appear to be taking advantage of the scarce to increase sales.
