History[change | change source]
S. Truett Cathy opened a restaurant called the Dwarf Grill (now known as the Dwarf house) in Atlanta, in 1946. In 1961, he found a fryer that is quicker in frying the chicken. After the discovery, he changed the name to Chick-fil-A inc. The slogan, "We Didn't Invent the Chicken, Just the Chicken Sandwich" refers to their top menu item, the chicken sandwich.
