Life lessons from a 'chick-n cooker'

In our locality of the Inland Empire of Southern California, specifically, Trilogy Glen Ivy south of the city of Corona, there is but one Chick-fil-A restaurant.  Judging by the crowds we have seen in this place, this location has to be one of the leading franchises for the chain, probably one which would merit great approval from the late founder of the chain.

Samuel Truett Cathy, better known as S. Truett Cathy, the American founder and longtime chairman of Chick-fil-A. Cathy was born Samuel Truett Cathy in Eatonton, Georgia on March 14, 1921. He died Sep 08, 2014.

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.
