About Chick-fil-A Colonial Heights
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.
Since the first restaurant opened its doors nearly 50 years ago, Chick-fil-A has grown from one man's vision to one of the largest family-owned businesses in the country. Much of the company's success has been credited to the stability and consistency within Chick-fil-A, Inc.'s leadership team. While corporate leadership at many quick-service restaurants change frequently, many senior leaders at Chick-fil-A have been with the company for more than 20 years. Tenured leadership -- and a passion for serving others -- has enabled the company to be unwavering in supporting its locally-owned franchises to ensure that the Chick-fil-A brand continues to thrive.
