Chick-fil-A, American fast food restaurant, is very well-known for their outspoken Christian faith. The company has made major headlines multiple times in relation to standing up for conservative Christian values.
Most commonly, the restaurant is known for being closed on Sundays. The founder originally closed locations on Sundays so that “employees could set aside one day to rest and worship if they choose,” according to their website.
Chick-fil-A recently opened a new location in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia— home stadium to the NFL's Atlanta Falcons. Customers were very surprised when Chick-fil-A confirmed that this location will still be closed on Sundays, even though Sunday is the busiest day of the week during football season.
Today reported that a spokesperson for Chick-fil-A revealed why the company is content with losing out on Sunday game sales. He stated, “While we serve Chick-fil-A at several stadiums throughout the country, we have always adhered to our founder’s commitment to close on Sundays. It gives our team members a chance to take a day of rest.”
The spokesperson continued by assuring there are multiple other sales opportunities besides Sunday games, “This partnership also allows us to serve customers at other events at the stadium throughout the year.”
Regardless, some customers were confused with the company’s decision. However, others appreciated Chick-fil-A upholding to their values.
