Cathy attended Boys High School in Atlanta. He served in the United States Army during World War II. Cathy began the chain in the Atlanta suburb of Hapeville in 1946 with a restaurant called the Dwarf Grill, named because of its small size. It was there that he, along with his brother and business partner Ben, created the chicken sandwich that later became the signature menu item for Chick-fil-A. The original restaurant is still in operation and the company operates other Dwarf House locations in the metro Atlanta area. He married Jeanette McNeil in 1948; the couple had three children: Trudy, Don and Dan.
