If you find yourself addicted in a sense to that special chicken sandwich, you are not alone. And, the history of the chain dates way back to the 1940s. Founder Truett Cathy introduced one of the country’s first chicken sandwiches at his “Dwarf House” in Hapeville, Georgia. That restaurant focused on hamburger and steak. Then, in 1967 he took the same chicken recipe and opened the first Chick Fil A in Atlanta. According to entrepeneur.com, Chick Fil A generates more revenue per restaurant than any other fast food chain. And, fun fact I didn’t know is that the “A” in the name means Grade A. Plus, if you ever see a grand opening advertised, realize you’re in for a treat. The first 100 customers at a new Chick Fil A usually get free Chick Fil A for a year! That’s why folks camp out getting ready for the big day. It’s quite the phenomenon. Anyway, make sure you get free Chick Fil A sandwiches in North Carolina while you can!
