Daddy-Daughter Date night at Chick-fil-A


Welcome to The Chicken Wire on In addition to great articles like this one, we’re bringing you news about our food, recipes and stories that will inspire. Thanks for stopping by.

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:
