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 >
Last fall, my husband and I found out we were pregnant with our first child. We were so excited but nervous. We were in the process of building our first home, so money was a little tight. In December we started our visits to the doctor in Ashland, KY, over an hour's drive for us. Since I was pregnant and always hungry, I would have to stop for lunch, or dinner or breakfast. We were trying to save... read more >
I've just moved back to my hometown of Mobile, AL to Pastor the church my father started. When I got here, I realized I didn't have an office and would have to be flexible. One day I went to Chick-fil-A for breakfast (because they definitely have the best biscuits in the world) and realized they had free WiFi. That was about 3 weeks ago and I've been in here typing away at my computer eating a chi... read more >
My family has been through a lot through the years. My husband and I have five young children, two of whom have special needs. We have a child with mild cerebral palsy and a child who is a cancer survivor. My husband had to stop working well over a year ago so that he could be with our son during chemo and radiation.
We were blessed to have the love and support of our local Chick-fil-A, which so... read more >
Our family has been faithful customers at the La Plata, MD location since the first week it opened. We have enjoyed many a school fundraiser, play date lunch with friends, and Family Night. The list goes on and on. We are always greeted with a "Welcome to Chick-fil-A" and a smile. When you endear yourself to your customers, it is felt and greatly appreciated especially when the world outside can b... read more >
