Deerfield-News.com-Deerfield Beach, Fl-I may be the only person in Deerfield Beach that does not eat here. Sure seems like they have the busiest drive-thru in town. Today while leaving Publix which is usually difficult to do between 11 and 2 as a result of the traffic backing up at the Chick Fill A drive-thru. I did notice the following signs along with additional employees trying to solve this ongoing issue.

Who we are
“We should be about more than just selling chicken. We should be a part of our customers’ lives and the communities in which we serve.”
S. TRUETT CATHY 1921—2014
Why we’re closed on Sundays
Our founder, Truett Cathy, made the decision to close on Sundays in 1946 when he opened his first restaurant in Hapeville, Georgia. Having worked seven days a week in restaurants open 24 hours, Truett saw the importance of closing on Sundays so that he and his employees could set aside one day to rest and worship if they choose – a practice we uphold today.
In 1995, a renegade cow, paintbrush in mouth, painted the three words “EAT MOR CHIKIN” on a Texas billboard. From that day forward, the burger-eating landscape was forever changed. These fearless cows, acting in enlightened self-interest, realized that when people eat chicken, they don’t eat beef. Today, the cows’ herds have increased and their message reaches millions – through television, radio, online, and on the occasional water tower. Needless to say, we fully endorse and appreciate the monumental efforts made by our most beloved bovine friends.
