Albany business people flock to hear Cathy

April 10, 2007

Albany -- Dozens of Albany's top business people spent their lunch hour listening to Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy talk about success in today's business world.

Cathy is the son of Chick-fil-A founder Truett Cathy, and now Chief Operating Officer of the franchise.

He spoke at Darton College on how to succeed in today's competitive retail enviornment,  stressing that customer service, hard work, and Christian values are the keys to Chick-fil-A's growth and success.

Cathy said "have a positive influence on all that come in contact with Chick-fil-A. So it's great to know that God can use chicken sandwiches and fresh squeezed lemonade as a vehicle to impact people's lives."

Chick-fil-A is not open on Sunday because of Cathy's religious convictions, and he says that is another reason for their success.

In 2006 the Chick-fil-A chain produced record sales of more than two and a quarter billion dollars, more than a 15 percent overall sales increase over the previous year.
