Chick-fil-A’s Response to Hurricane Florence Devastating the Carolinas Proves Why They’re the Best

Published

on

A Chick-fil-A restaurant located in the port city of Wilmington, North Carolina, a town which took a very hard direct hit from the storm, opened its doors Monday and provided food for first responders and linemen working around the clock to restore power to the community.

This isn’t the first time the franchise has participated in activities like this in midst of a disaster. After a mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Florida, a local Chick-fil-A opened it’s doors on a Sunday, which it normally keeps closed, in order to provide food for folks donating blood after the incident. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Here are more details on the situation in North Carolina.

And while the drive-thru was open to the public, the dining room was reserved for emergency personnel and linemen to take a load off and enjoy a hot — and free — meal, according to WCNC-TV.

The restaurant said it would continue to serve area disaster personnel until it ran out of food and supplies.

Meanwhile, a Chick-fil-A in Raleigh opened on Sunday to thank first responders and linemen. Employees at the Triangle Town Center location volunteered to cook 500 sandwiches and more than 1,000 chicken nuggets, WCNC reported.

Chick-fil-A closes every location on Sundays, a policy the restaurant has maintained since opening its first location in 1946. Founder S. Truett Cathy wanted to give his employees one day of rest each week, a foundational value of his Christian faith. However, Chick-fil-A corporate allows some restaurants to operate on Sundays when a local community is in need.

Chick-fil-A has got to be, without a shadow of a doubt, the most classy fast food restaurant on the block. You don’t hear about McDonald’s or Burger King getting in on this kind of action, do you? No. You don’t.

Part of the reason for the company’s generosity has a lot to do with the Christian faith of its owners. They close the place down on Sundays to give folks a day off to spend with family and to attend church. Not many folks do that sort of thing.

Let’s hope other businesses take a hint from Chick-fil-A.
