Thousands of travelers were stranded in Atlanta on Sunday when a power outage struck the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Fortunately for the travelers, Chick-fil-A was there to save the day.
Chick-fil-A is traditionally closed on Sundays to honor a day of rest. But the fast-food chain opened its doors on Sunday to feed hungry travelers when a power outage forced the nation’s busiest airport to shut down.
According to WSB-TV, the restaurant handed out meals to travelers at the airport and people stranded at the Georgia International Convention Center. The restaurant did so at the request of the city.
Thousands of travelers were served, according to Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed. The city and the airport thanked Chick-fil-A for breaking tradition and opening their fryers for the stranded travelers.
