It all started in 1946, when Truett Cathy opened his first restaurant, The Dwarf Grill, in Hapeville, Georgia. Credited with inventing Chick-fil-A's boneless breast of chicken sandwich, Mr. Cathy founded Chick-fil-A,Inc. in the early 1960s and pioneered the establishment of restaurants in shopping malls with the opening of the first Chick-fil-A Restaurant at a mall in suburban Atlanta in 1967. Since then, Chick-fil-Ahas steadily grown to become the second largest quick-service chicken restaurant chain in the United States, with over 1,500 locations in 39 states and Washington, D.C. In 2010, annual sales were over $3.5 billion. Chick-fil-A is still privately held and family owned.
With 43 consecutive years of positive sales growth, Chick-fil-A's set itself apart by pioneering innovations and delicious products; including the ever-popular Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich.
"Be America's Best Quick-Service Restaurant"
System-wide sales in 2010 reached $3.5 billion. These figures reflect an 11.37 percent increase over the chainâ€™s 2009 performance and a same-store sales increase of 5.62 percent.
Fourteen years after the chain signed on as the first-ever title sponsor of theChick-fil-A Peach Bowl and five years after the debut of the newly renamed Chick-fil-A Bowl the classic college football match-up and longest-running rivalry between Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) and Southeastern Conference (SEC) teams continues to set records. The 2010 Chick-fil-A Bowl drew a 14th-consecutive sellout crowd to Atlanta's Georgia Dome to witness the December 31 clash between the ACC's Florida State Seminoles and the SEC's South Carolina Gamecocks. The sold-out game continues to lead all bowls in charitable donations to a variety of charities, including WinShape HomesÂ®, and provided a record $6.7 million total payout to participating universities. Furthering its partnership with college sports, Chick-fil-A's a proud corporate partner of the Big 12.
