Chick- fil- a
By: Hailee Hartfree
Chick-fil-a was started by Truett Cathy in 1946. The first Chick-fil-a was called "The Dwarf Grill" in Hapeville, Georgia. When he first opened the restaurant, Truett Cathy slept in the back of "The Dwarf Grill" to make sure everything was going good. As the years went by, the name changed to Chick-fil-a and it even opened a restaurant in the mall in Atlanta in 1967. Truett Cathy has published 5 books and even opened a foster home for children with no parents. Chick-fil-a also has offered Leadership Scholarships during these years for their employees that want a better education.
Chick-fil-a uses all types of transportation. One of them are trucks. The trucks can carry up to 14 tons of supplies. The trucks carry the chickens and the food that they sell. Another type of transportation they use is planes. Some of the supplies like napkins and plates and bags they use may be from China or other countries. To get the supplies shipped in, Chick-fil-a uses highways and airports.
Chick-fil-a has a huge impact on not only Georgia, but in a lot of other states. One way it has left a impact on Georgia is that it hosts the Chick-fil-a Peach Bowl and the Chick-fil-a Kickoff Game. This brings a boat load of money to our economy. It also has a impact on Georgia by making one of the best chicken sandwhiches. This product is very popular and thanks to Mr. Cathy, it brings millions of dollars to the company. Chic-fil-a also has a leadership scholarships for their employees that want to finish their education. This makes the company look better and with it starting in Georgia, it makes Georgia look good.
Chick-fil-a has many risks. One of the risks is being closed on Sundays. By being closed on Sundays due to spritual purposes, it can cause Chick-fil-a to lose money. Another risk is giving the customers food poisoning. When the customers get food poisoning, that prevents them from coming back to the restaurant. The more customers that get food poisioning, the less they are going to have and that can cause them to lose money.
