Used to be most places were closed on the Sabbath as a sign of respect to their employees. In this case, CFA keeps that tradition.

So, why aren't they closed sundown friday to sundown saturday out of respect to their Jewish employees? Don't the Jews deserve a sabbath as well?

Probably because the owner is a Christian and this is a free country. If a Jewish person wants to take Saturdays off then let 'em.

Actually, technically, that's the owner/founder enacting his principles as workplace policy. There's a difference.

Sure, he has a right to. They'd have more business if they were open on sundays, though.

Standing up for principles:
There is a law stating that restaurants must be open on sundays. Through some manner, he attempts to fight this law, because he believe that his sabbath should be kept free of working.

Enacting his principles as workplace policy:
He simply decides to close on sundays because he believe that his sabbath should be kept free of working.

Would you say he was "standing up for his principles" if he banned employees from wearing piercings of any sort in his restaurants? What about if he refused to serve certain races (assuming that such an action is not illegal)?

Standing up for your principles means sticking to what you believe despite personal cost. The owner is suffering personal cost in the form of lost business because he believes his business shouldn't be open on Sundays.


Would you say he was "standing up for his principles" if he banned employees from wearing piercings of any sort in his restaurants? What about if he refused to serve certain races (assuming that such an action is not illegal)?


Considering the likely lawsuits that would follow, yes.

Guess what, standing up for your principles can take the form of workplace policy. They don't have to be mutually exclusive.

The Sabbath is a jewish thing big guy, he's respecting Sunday as a day set aside for the Lord, a day we as Christians have chosen to have service on.

And BTW what are you on about? Yes I would say he was standing up for his principles if he banned employees from wearing piercings, thats pretty much a general coporate thing. Gives employees a look of professionalism which is fast fading in this world. Racism is not a Christian belief my friend so I think you may be barking up the wrong tree.

The only reason I ever liked Chic-Fil-A was the waffle fries and the damn funny advertisements. Now that Back Yard Burger has the waffle fries (and a couple of other places) I'll just look at the bilboards.

Oh, and I never said racism was a christian thing, I meant, if he was racist and set corporate policy against serving anybody of the races he discriminates against, would you say that he would be standing up for his principles?

For crying out loud people, the fucking post office is closed Sundays, and all federal holidays!
They don't even keep reasonable hours (how about staying open until 9PM like most real businesses)

What on earth do you mean by this? Are you speaking hypothetically or do you think there is some law that requires restaurants to be open on Sunday?


Would you say he was "standing up for his principles" if he banned employees from wearing piercings of any sort in his restaurants?


Actually, at the CFA I worked at, female employees are only allowed to have earrings and they must meet certain size requirement. No other visible piercings are allowed. Men are not allowed to have any visible piercings.

In some areas health code actually bans piercings (and other jewelry) in the kitchen. We got a citation once when one of the managers went back into the kitchen to help and didn't take off his watch.


What about if he refused to serve certain races (assuming that such an action is not illegal)?


Don't you think it's a bit of a leap from being closed on Sunday to practicing racism. I mean why not just say, "Well, what if he decided to shoot every third customer?" It makes about the same amount of sense.

Closed Sundays. It's part of the Chick-fil-A® recipe.
Admittedly, closing all of our restaurants every Sunday makes us a rarity in this day and age. But it's a little habit that has always served us well, so we're planning to stick with it.

Our founder, Truett Cathy, wanted to ensure that every Chick-fil-A employee and restaurant operator had an opportunity to worship, spend time with family and friends or just plain rest from the work week. Made sense then, still makes sense now.



Just one more reason I eat there when I have the chance.

Why not? If they want to do without the Sunday business that is their choice. Personally, I could care less if they are closed. I can do without some nuggets or fries on day a week.
