History of Chick-fil-a
The chain grew from the Dwarf Grill (later the Dwarf House, a name still used by the chain), a restaurant opened by S. Truett Cathy, who is still the company's chairman, in the Atlanta suburb of Hapeville in 1946. This restaurant is located near a now defunct Ford plant, where workers once caught meals between shifts.
The first Chick-fil-A opened in Atlanta's Greenbriar Mall in 1967. The current slogan, "We Didn't Invent the Chicken, Just the Chicken Sandwich," is based on a true story: at a time when hamburgers dominated fast-food menus since the beginning, Cathy was credited with creating and inventing the chicken sandwich, which went on to be Chick-fil-A's flagship menu item. His idea for the chicken sandwich stemmed from the idea of creating a quick way to serve food. The sandwich also comes with two pickles simply because that was the only condiment he had on hand when the sandwich was created.
