Transcript:

We cook. But we don’t just serve sandwiches. We serve meals made from good ingredients, warm and cared-for from the time they’re cooked to the moment they’re served.

We prepare - but not just a meal – an experience. Everything we do is with the greatest of care. A clean table. A pair of pickles laid on a bun just so. Our love is wrapped up in the little things – the in-between things that aren’t said but are always felt.

We believe with all our hearts that kindness is a higher calling. We want to know people – to nourish them. We love seeing individuals, teams, and communities brighten lives by caring for others.

We build on a legacy of one man’s pioneering spirit, his faithful stewardship, his vision that being your best requires hard work, that local ownership isn’t just unique – it’s the best way to do business, and that giving generously can help good to grow.

We are more than a restaurant. We’re a home where the hugs are just as tender as the chicken, the smiles just as sweet as the lemonade, and the conversations just as nourishing as the meal.

To those we serve: neighbors, friends, family, we are Chick-fil-A.
