In late 1970 or early 1971, I was a young Captain on active duty with the US Air Force stationed at Warner-Robins Air Force Base in Georgia. I had just returned from a difficult year away from my family at a remote location. At the time, I was seriously pondering career options. I noticed that a new mall in Centerville, Georgia, where we lived, was having an open house, so we decided to attend. T... read more >
I have been working in Chicago for 3 months, and have gone to Chick-fil-A for lunch on Friday every week since I started. The first Friday, I went alone, and ate a delicious lunch by myself. The next week, I thought it would be a good idea to invite some co-workers along - and so a group of four enjoyed chicken sandwiches together. Every week I would corral people in my office to join me for lunch... read more >
I wanted to write a quick note of thanks about your one of your managers at the Missouri City, Texas location named Angela. My family and I have been visiting this location once a week for the past few years. My boys think of Angela as family. They are almost as excited to see her as they are to eat nuggets. They look for her behind the counter before we place our order and give her a wave if they... read more >
My three-year-old son absolutely LOVES eating at Chick-fil-A, so we decided to dress him up as a Chick-fil-A employee for Halloween, and my 6-month-old went as the Chick-fil-A Cow. I went to the restaurant in Cedar Park and talked to one of the managers (I think Liz was her name) to see if I could buy any promo items to help complete my son's costume as the Chick-fil-A employee. Liz said she tho... read more >
The past 2 years my dad and I have gone to the Daddy-Daughter Date Night event hosted by our local Chick-fil-A. We always laugh because I'm usually the only high schooler there; most of the girls with their dads are in elementary school or younger. Last year my dad made a comment to the manager's wife that I wouldn't be there next year because I'd be at college. She said, "That's okay, you'll j... read more >
Last Sunday, my niece Vanessa stepped out of her front door and collapsed from a brain aneurysm. She was 16. They pronounced her brain dead on Tuesday. Life support allowed her to donate her organs on Wednesday. The week was a blur of tears, hugs & debilitating sadness. My daughters are the same ages as my nieces - 16 and 18. I call them my Fantastic Four. Losing Vanessa so suddenly left us unabl... read more >
20 years ago on 10/1/1993, a few of us arranged a date for 2 close friends, Mary and Charlie. They seemed perfect for each other, great sense of humor, smart, attractive, and shared similar family values.
We were just starting our senior year in high school. I served as the chauffeur and drove the couple to the movies, then to our favorite restaurant, Chick-fil-A. #1 meals around with diet c... read more >
The Crystal City Chick-fil-A (Arlington, VA) is the best possible example of how a franchise can still have that hometown feel. While I had been to other Chick-fil-A's in the past, I "found" this one when a friend sent me a notice about their upcoming Mother/Son Date "Knight" (almost a year ago now).
My son had just turned one and I was a newly single mother. I am not sure what I expected fro... read more >
