I picked up my son, 2nd Lt. Matthew O., the day after he completed Army Ranger School. If you don't know how grueling this training is please take a moment to read just how incredibly difficult this training program is. Less than 50% of soldiers who begin this training EVER graduate, only 15% of soldiers graduate after passing all three phases without being recycled. It is 61 days of pure hell, ex... read more >
Growing up in Georgia, Chick-fil-A has always been a fixture in my life. Though others could say the same, I believe mine to be a unique connection. My father, Tommy King, told me that back in the early 50’s, he was one of the first to try Mr. Cathy's newest creations: a chicken sandwich.
Seated in a booth with his boyhood friends, in the original Dwarf House, on Central Avenue in Hapeville, GA ... read more >
Our developmentally disabled son, Aaron, loved to go to Chick-fil-A with his job coach, Barbara, his best friend, Vanessa, and his other "homies" -- a loving term they used for one another. They spent countless days over the past 10 years enjoying Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwiches, Chicken Nuggets, and dipping sauce, of course!
I was the Mom, so I didn't get to enjoy those lunches with the "homie... read more >
I was a sophomore in college. The only thing I knew about your restaurant was that they had crazy good food.But being a second year business student in college brought the Chick-fil-A experience full circle for me. I had the unforgettable opportunity to hear Truett Cathy speak.
He talked about starting the business and how it had grown. He gave great insightful tips on successful business proced... read more >
My son, Brian, practically lived off of Chick-fil-A sandwiches. He was a college student at JMU at the time that his mother and I were living halfway across the world. To supplement his meager grocery budget, he made it a point to travel to every Chick-fil-A grand opening to be one of the first 100 customers there so he could receive the free Chick-fil-A meal cards. He would often leave his home t... read more >
My Mom, Sylvia, lost her valiant battle with lung disease on June 14th. She and my Dad, Chet, enjoyed lunch every day at Gary Harris' Chick-fil-A on International Speedway in Daytona Beach, FL. The staff at this Chick-fil-A is phenomenal. They rallied around my Dad to help him through this difficult time. We received personal phone calls and visits from staff offering hugs, help and words of comfo... read more >
I've heard it called Chick-a-fil-a, Chick-a-flé, and Chicky. No matter what you call it, Chick-fil-A is one of my favorite places to go!
After my Chicky opened, a friend and I went to eat dinner and it became an everyday occurrence. We quickly made friends with the staff. As time went by, studying for the GRE became part of our nightly visits. I could study more seriously and studiously, but the... read more >
When I was 15 years old I got an opportunity that has shaped my life in so many ways. I was hired to work at a Chick-fil-A restaurant. At the time there was only two in my town and both of them were in the mall and had the same Owner/Operator. I would stay with that Operator for the next 4 years as he opened the first stand-alone store in the area.
The managers and Operator I had took such an in... read more >
