Trudy Cathy White, the daughter of S. Truett Cathy who started Chick-Fil-A has revealed that it is the blessing of God blessing that has caused the company’s massive growth and success.
“We feel like the Lord is just giving us more and more responsibility to manage what He’s entrusted to us,” she explained in an interview. “That’s truth in all of life. We have to realize that the very God who created us is the very God who gives us talents and gifts to be used, to honor Him.”
S. Truett Cathy built the American chain of family restaurants based on God’s Word.
“My dad built this business based on Biblical principles. He felt like his business decisions kind of go hand in hand with biblical principles. That’s no secret. There’s a lot of things that we are taught in God’s Word and we’ve been able to put it into practice in our business,” Trudy said.
“We’re in business to glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that’s been trusted to us and to have a positive influence on all who come in contact with Chick-fil-A.”
Trudy also shared a valuable lesson that she learned from her parents.
“One of the things that my parents taught us is that the important things can’t be bought with dollars and cents. The important things in life are people looking for joy, peace and hope, and you won’t find those things for sale or in a store. Those things you will find in the truth of God’s Word and a personal relationship with Jesus Christ,” she said.
In Trudy’s new book, “Climb Every Mountain: Finding God Faithful in the Journey Of Life,” she talks about her faith.
“I was raised in a home where I was taught much about the love of God. I was about 7-and-a-half when I realized I wanted to embrace the kind of love that I had heard about from this Heavenly Father,” she said. “I knew that Jesus loves me, that He had died on the Cross for me, and that He was offering me the gift of eternal life. ”
Contrary to all other business, money is not the end goal of Chick-Fil-A, it’s sharing God’s love to the people.
“We love selling chicken but we’re really more in the people business,” Trudy said.
