Chick-fil-A Broke Their Biggest Rule And Opened On Sunday For A Heartwarming Reason

The restaurant chain Chick-fil-A is famously known for two things: tasty chicken, and closing their doors on Sunday.

The second tradition dates back to the chain's founder S. Truett Cathy, a devout Southern Baptist who decided to run his business based on his deepest convictions.

That means your local Chick-fil-A is closed every Sunday, and on holidays like Christmas and Thanksgiving, when workers like to be home with their families.

It's a big trade-off between religious beliefs and profits, but it's one that was very important to Cathy. Here's how he explained it:

"I was not so committed to financial success that I was willing to abandon my principles and priorities. One of the most visible examples of this is our decision to close on Sunday. Our decision to close on Sunday was our way of honoring God and of directing our attention to things that mattered more than our business."


Even the chain's location in Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium, where the Atlanta Falcons play on Sundays, isn't open on the seventh day, the stadium's busiest day by far.

But despite all the importance the restaurant puts on this one rule, they broke it earlier this week. As you've probably guessed, they had a very good reason.
