Summary

S. Truett Cathy is a real-life, living Horatio Alger story. Growing up in a boarding house his mother operated during the Great Depression, he learned the principles of hard work, fairness, honesty, loyalty, and respect. When he opened a small restaurant in 1946 with his brother Ben, he put those principles to work and immediately began to experience their rewards.

Twenty-three years later Cathy opened the first Chick-fil-A restaurant, which was unique in America in two ways: it served the first boneless breast chicken sandwich, and it was the first fast-food restaurant to operate in a shopping mall. Today there are more than one thousand Chick-fil-A restaurants with more than $1 billion in sales annually while adhering to a policy unknown in the fast-food business -- Chick-fil-A is closed on Sundays.

Truett Cathy's commitment reaches far beyond the people who work and eat in his restaurants. Through the WinShape. Centre Foundation, funded by Chick-fil-A, he operates foster homes for more than 120 children, sponsors a summer camp for more than 1,600 childre
