Chick-Fil-A Founder Truett Cathy Dead at 93

Truett Cathy built a food empire by selling chicken sandwiches and doing it only six days a week. All the Chick-Fil-A stores are closed on Sunday.

He died early Monday morning at 93.

In the past two years, the highly successful restaurant chain owner and his family became more famous for their views on same-sex sexuality that resulted in “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day” for the stand the company took on the issue of homosexuality.

The homosexuality community was outraged by company president Dan Cathy’s statement that he was “guilty as charged” in upholding biblical values.

There is more to Chick-Fil-A and Truett Cathy than chicken sandwiches and waffle-cut fries.

As expected thee haters have come out:

Nothing is said about the tens of thousands of people Chick-Fil-A employees directly and indirectly in its more than 1600 restaurants, the millions of dollars that have been donated, the scholarship finds, Camp WinShape, and so much more. All these people care about is what kind of sex they can engage in.


The vandals caused thirty thousand dollars in damage to Truett Cathy’s home in 2008.

But it was the words they left behind that bothered him the most. Filthy language — scribbled on the walls — by a pair of pre-teen girls.

But Mr. Cathy asked police not to prosecute the young vandals. He feared a criminal record might tarnish their lives. So instead of jail — Mr. Cathy worked out a deal with their parents.

The girls were banned from watching television and playing video games. They had to write a thousand times, “I will not vandalize other people’s property.”

He wanted to show the girls there was a better way in life.

Mr. Cathy died Monday. He was 93.

Truett cathy

The nation will remember him as the man who founded Chick-fil-A. But beyond the waffle fries and grammatically-challenged bovines, Mr. Cathy was a man who had a deep and abiding faith in our Lord.

He was a devout Southern Baptist. He taught Sunday school to 13-year-old boys for more than 50 years.

Mr. Cathy’s faith flavored Chick-fil-A – far beyond the company’s long-held “Closed-on-Sunday” policy. He launched foster homes and summer camps and scholarships for young people. And when employees needed a helping hand – Mr. Cathy was there.

Since 1973, Chick-fil-A has given more than $32 million in financial assistance to workers.

Notice that word – “given.”
