Fast food restaurant Chick-fil-A revealed their real purpose in doing business, and that is to glorify God.
Chick-fil-A has been known for its Christian beliefs and values since the late Truett Cathy founded it in 1946. The restaurant has always been closed on Sundays so that “employees could set aside one day to rest and worship.” The question often asked its owners is: What is the real purpose of the famous restaurant?
In an interview with Chief Executive magazine, the company’s chairman and former CEO Dan Cathy revealed the real purpose of Chick-fil-A, and that is to glorify God.
“At Chick-fil-A, we are very grounded on our corporate purpose, to be a purpose-driven organization,” Dan said. “That purpose is defined in the statement that we’re here to glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that’s entrusted to us and have a positive influence on all who come in contact with Chick-fil-A.”
Dan became the CEO in 2013 and in 2021, he gave the position to his son Andrew. Even as the leadership changes over time, their beliefs and values still remain the same. The fast food chain has always been rooted in its Christian faith. Dan , now the chairman of the board, also shared how they wanted to impact people’s lives with what they do and also with their faith.
“We want to impact people’s lives, we want to be a good steward of what we’ve been entrusted with,” Cathy added. “We’re not going to take any of this with us. We only have it for just a moment in time, so let’s be a good stewards of it. And then, ultimately, let’s acknowledge our Creator. Let’s have a sense of humility, let’s have a teachable spirit, and let’s be willing to be submissive, all of which we learn in our faith experience to honor the Lord and seek to honor him in all that we do. That’s the baton exchange for society, for culture, for a business, for an enterprise.”
