Twenty-three years later Cathy opened the first Chick-fil-A restaurant, which was unique in America in two ways: it served the first boneless breast chicken sandwhich, and it was the first fast-food restaurant to operate in a shopping mall. Today there are more than one thousand Chick-fil-A restaurants with more than $1 billion in sales annually while adhering to a policy unknown in the fast-food business - Chick-fil-A is closed on Sundays.
Truett Cathy's commitment reaches far beyond the people who work and eat in his restaurants. Through WinShape Centre Foundation, funded by Chick-fil-A, he operates foster homes for more than 1,600 children, and has provided college scholarships for more than 16,500 students.
Eat Mor Chikin: Inspire More People, Truett Cathy challenges readers to focus on people and principles. The principles he outlines in this book have brought success to his business, and he insists that anyone who follows them will surely enjoy similar results.
