Meet the Author

S. Truett Cathy is a real-life Horatio Alger story. Growing up in a boardinghouse his mother operated during the Great Depression, he learned the principles of hard work, honesty, loyalty, and respect. When he opened a small restaurant in 1946 with his brother Ben, he put those principles to work and immediately began to experience rewards. Over two decades later, Cathy opened his first Chick-fil-A restaurant, which was unique in America in two ways: it served the first boneless breast chicken sandwich, and it was the first fast-food restaurant to operate in a shopping mall. Today, the more than 1,000 Chick-fil-A restaurants boast than $3 billion in sales annually while adhering to a policy previously unknown in the fast-food business: Chick-fil-A is closed on Sundays.

Along with his wife, Jeanette, Cathy is also the founder of the WinShape Centre Foundation, which offers college scholarships, summer camps for children, a marriage retreat center, and homes for more than 130 foster children. The Cathys live in the Atlanta area.

    A Truly Exemplary and Inspiring Life

    I have just finished this wonderful book after enjoying it with all the appetite and delite I would enjoy a Chick-Fil-a meal! In addition to revealing the 'secrets to his success' (which are really time honored values we all embrace and hold dearly) Cathy provides an inspiring account of his life and the convictions he has held to unwaveringly over the years. I have long admired Cathy and the Chick-Fil-a difference, (anyone who has dined at Chick-Fil-a knows what I am talking about!) but was very pleased to learn more about the value he has placed on loyalty, consistency and generosity throughout his lifetime. He truly exemplifies a Christian life lived to the fullest. The book is full of stories....stories that touch the heart as he gives account of the many lives impacted by himself and Chick-Fil-a over the years. A must read!!! and....eat MOR chiken! (Would make a great graduation gift!)

    Outstanding Book by an Outstanding Man

    Although I've eaten at Chik-Filet many times, It took this autobiography of Mr. Cathy to show me what one can accomplish if they put their heart into it. This book is well written, and should be required reading for highschoolers.
