the beginning

In 1946, S. Truett Cathy and his brother opened the Dwarf Grill in south Atlanta. It was a small, but very busy diner open six days a week and never on Sunday. 

the inspiration

Truett and his wife Jeannette invented our Original Chicken Sandwich. Their idea was simple: a sandwich using a plump, juicy chicken breast. So began the success story that is still being written- and eaten- today. 

the classics

Along the way, Chick-fil-A introduced our Original Chicken Sandwich, Waffle Potato Fries and Icedream. While we didn't invent lemonade, we do freshly squeeze our lemons right here each day.
