Chick-fil-A is a business first, not a church
I
’ve read several articles on your website about Chickfil- A, and I appreciate the way that the reporters don’t focus on people’s opinions about “Chickfil- A’s beliefs.” Instead, your paper talks about Chick-fil-A as a business. I was overjoyed to see this side of Chick-fil-A come to light.

I have been working at the Hendersonville Chick-fil-A for almost three years now. Every time someone asks me if I like my job, I reply, “I don’t like my job, I love my job!” and it’s true. I love working at Chick-fil-A, we operate our business on biblical principles that have proven themselves to work, time and time again. Such as: going the second mile, Matthew 5:38-48. But, this doesn’t make us a church. Truett Cathy once said, “[Chick-fil-A] is a business first.” That is paramount.

I got the opportunity to assist with the first 100, at the grand opening of the Chick-fil-A on Merrimon Avenue. Those people camping out on the asphalt that night didn’t come primarily to support traditional marriage or to make a stand against secular beliefs. They came to get free Chick-fil-A for a year, and to get great food, served quickly, with a smile.
