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.”
Each Chick-fil-A franchise is individually owned and operated. Our mission at Chick-fil-A Flemington is to deliver REMARKable hospitality experiences and develop servant leaders. It would be our pleasure to have the opportunity to serve you and your family!
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.
Inventing the Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich
Serving a breaded, boneless chicken breast between two buttered buns is a seemingly simple idea—but it was a novelty for its time. Truett Cathy experimented for years at the Dwarf Grill in Hapeville, GA when in 1964, he finally arrived at the perfect recipe. On that day, the Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich was born. That capital A is on purpose – it means “grade A top quality”. Truett’s customers told him, “We like it, don’t change it again.” And we haven’t.
Fresh food prep
At Chick-fil-A we take a “cook less, more often” approach. By studying smart, lean manufacturing principles used in other industries, we have created new ways to serve our guests the freshest food possible while reducing food waste.
Parenting friendly menus
From the beginning it’s been important for us to give parents options when selecting meals for their children. That’s why we were the first restaurants to offer a fruit cup and grilled entrée, and why we expanded our menu to include organic and soda-free options for kid’s meals.
Our commitment to the environment is in the very fiber of our being – literally. Our restaurant team member polos are made with rPET fabric from recycled plastic bottles. To date, more than 5.3 million bottles have been reclaimed and repurposed into shirts.
