Chick-fil-A, a company founded on Biblical principles, has topped the list as America’s favorite restaurant for the eighth consecutive year in a row, according to Christian Headlines. In this year’s American Customer Satisfaction Index Restaurant Study, Chick-fil-A took top place with a score of 83 out of 100, the same score it earned last year.
Surveyors agree that Chick-fil-A has been upholding the promise of its name in which the capital ‘A’ stands for “grade A top quality.’ Chick-fil-A tallied ahead of fast-food restaurants Jimmy John’s (79), Domino’s (78), KFC (78), Chipotle (77), Panera Bread (77), Pizza Hut (77), and Starbucks (77), according to Christian Headlines. Chick-fil-A’s rating even topped the survey’s full-service restaurant list coming in a few points higher than LongHorn Steakhouse (80), Texas Roadhouse (80), and Cracker Barrel (78).
Founded on Christian principles, Chick-fil-A keeps their “Purpose front and center” to share a positive influence on everyone they serve. Chick-fil-A was founded in 1946 by Truett Cathy who saw the importance of closing on Sundays so that he and his employees could have a day to rest and worship if they choose, and Chick-fil-A continues to uphold that policy today. Chick-fil-A’s purpose statement reveals their strong principles as they write that their mission is to “glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that is entrusted to us.”
As Chick-fil-A continues to grow around the country, so does their positive influence. Staying true to their founding principles, Chick-fil-A serves as an inspiration to all who may find society spiraling out of control. Recognizing their founding Christian principles in the world of business serves as a reminder to all businesspeople to hold sacred what they believe in and what they believe to be important.
