Chick-fil-A's CEO promised to carry on the Christian values of America's favorite restaurantlong before he took over in 2013.
Dan Cathy, the current chairman, president, and CEO of Chick-fil-A, pledged to his father, Truett Cathy, the founder, at the turn of the century that he, along with his siblings Bubba and Trudy, would continue Chick-fil-A's philanthropic work, never open on Sundays and never take the company public.
"We will be faithful to Christ's lordship in our lives," the pledge, highlighted in Truett Cathy's book, "Eat Mor Chikin: Inspire More People," began, as reported by Business Insider. "As committed Christians we will live a life of selfless devotion to His calling in our lives."...
Cathy has kept his promise and the fast food chain has only grown since he took over, not only in revenue, but also customer satisfaction. Chick-fil-A is the top fast-food chain on the American Customer Satisfaction index for the fourth year in a row, and is expected to become the third-largest fast-food chain in the country by next year, FOX 5 reported.
