"We must motivate ourselves to do our very best, and by our example lead others to do their best as well."
- Truett Cathy
Armed with a keen business sense, a work ethic forged during the Depression, and a personal and business philosophy based on biblical principles, Truett Cathy took a tiny Atlanta diner, originally called the Dwarf Grill, and transformed it into Chick-fil-A, the nation’s second largest quick-service chicken restaurant chain with more than $4.1 billion in sales in 2011 and nearly 1,620 locations. His tremendous business success allowed Truett to pursue other passions – most notably his interest in the development of young people.
