Chick-fil-A founder S. Truett Cathy is a devout Southern Baptist who has taught Sunday School for over 44 years and whose religious beliefs permeate the company to this day. The company's official statement of corporate purpose says that the business exists "to glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that is entrusted to us and to have a positive influence on all who come in contact with Chick-fil-A." The chain invests heavily in community services (especially for children and teenagers) and scholarships. Cathy's beliefs are also responsible for one of the chain's distinctive features: All Chick-fil-A locations (company-owned and franchised, whether in a mall or freestanding) are closed on Sundays.
“ Our decision to close on Sunday was our way of honoring God and directing our attention to things more important than our business. If it took seven days to make a living with a restaurant, then we needed to be in some other line of work. Through the years, I have never wavered from that position. „

Several of the religious organizations that Truett Cathy and Chick-fil-A have lent support to include groups such as Focus on the Family. Groups researching financial support of religious groups have noted that Truett Cathy is one of the largest corporate sponsors of politically active religious groups in the US, largely through grants from the Truett Cathy Foundation but occasionally through direct sponsorship as well or through partnership with other foundations that are major corporate sponsors of politically active religious groups.
Chick-fil-A has promoted religious groups via toys and CDs included in children's meals, much as movie studios promote new movies via McDonald's Happy Meal toys. These have ranged from including toys from the Christian television series VeggieTales in children's meals to including Financial Peace for Kids children's books by Christian financial guru Dave Ramsey and CDs from the Christian radio program Adventures in Odyssey, as children's meal incentives. The latter show is produced by the radio division of Focus on the Family, and typically heard on Christian radio stations.
Chick-fil-A and Focus on the Family also have a history of cross-promotion. Chick-fil-A has also sponsored meetings by the group All Pro Dad; All Pro Dad is a group with affiliations with Focus on the Family via a group called Family First; Family First promotes a large number of conservative religious causes, including covenant marriage.
Chick-fil-A has also directly sponsored other religious campaigns. One of the groups sponsored by Chick-fil-A is Athletes In Action which is a sports missionary arm of the Campus Crusade for Christ.
Another link between Chick-fil-A and religious groups includes promotion of National Bible Week. Truett Cathy is the chair of the National Bible Week Committee.
Truett Cathy is also heavily involved in the WinShape Foundation, a non-profit organization which was started in 1984 with its goal to "shape winners" by offering summer camps, retreats, foster care, and other services.
Amidst the company's push to the southwest, Las Vegas remains the southernmost large city without a Chick-fil-A location.
Chick-fil-A's connection to Christianity has even been brought up in court when Aziz Latif, a Houston-based Muslim employee for 6 years, sued the company in 2002 for firing him, alleging that he was fired for his religious beliefs when he had refused to take part in an employee prayer.
Kreutz, you must listen to crazz, the avocado spring rolls are out of this world and are a great starter for any meal there. If I remember correctly, last time I was there and ordered the Kobe Burger they no longer include crumbled Bleu Cheese, you now have to order it on the side. It does still come with sauteed mushrooms and grilled onions though, and make sure you have it with a Guinness, nothing else.

At Wendy's I get the Spicy Chicken Sandwich. If I'm at Jack in the Box I usually just order 2 regular hamburgers and put some sauce on them. At In-N-Out I get a Double Meat, just the meat, sauce and lettuce w/ some fries. Mmm.
at Subway i get the club with mustard (no mayo! ick), cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickles, olives, salt & pepper, oil & vinegar, and jalepenos. no cucumbers or peppercinis for me, they tear my stomach up.
I do like hamburgers on occasion. BK and Jin the B are dreadful, McD slightly better, but Wendy's is pretty good. I try to get a salad or something instead of the fries, though.
