Corsages and chicken sandwiches make for a very special evening out
For a few nights every year, all over the country, something special happens at Chick-fil-A restaurants. Little girls wearing their prettiest outfits walk into dining rooms filled with flowers, holding the hands of one very special guy: daddy.
The tradition started when a Chick-fil-A franchise owner wanted to create an event where fathers and daughters could have a memorable evening together. Jeff Rouse, owner of the Chick-fil-A at Olathe Pointe in Olathe, Kansas, started the Daddy Daughter Date Night nine years ago. Now, hundreds of Chick-fil-A restaurants nationwide are hosting their own events, each with their own unique touches – flowers on the table, red carpets, even carriage rides or live music – to create lifelong memories for families.
We love seeing your photos from Daddy Daughter Date Nights on Instagram. Whether they’re in uniform or a suit-and-tie, every dad in these pictures is wearing the same thing – a big, proud smile.
Check with your local Chick-fil-A restaurant to find if they're hosting a Daddy-Daughter Date Night and more about other upcoming events.
Here’s a look at a few of our favorites:
Susannah has been looking forward to this date since last Valentine's at CFA daddy daughter date night. Earlier this week we went and picked out a new dress and had so much fun getting her all fancy. On her date she wanted to talk to daddy about "how much they love each other, how pretty she looks and how handsome daddy looks." I asked her favorite part of the date and she couldn't decide, there were "too many wonderful things" she said. #susannahjoy #chickfila #daddydaughterdatenight #boysshealreadyhashighstandards
