MEMBERSHIP SPOTLIGHT | CHICK FIL A | Ben Prine
By: Zach Buckner | 09.27.16

It all started in 1946, when Truett Cathy opened his first restaurant, Dwarf Grill, in Hapeville, Georgia. Credited with inventing Chick-fil-A's boneless breast of chicken sandwich, Mr. Cathy founded Chick-fil-A, Inc. in the early 1960s and pioneered the establishment of restaurants in shopping malls with the opening of the first Chick-fil-A Restaurant at a mall in suburban Atlanta in 1967. Since then, Chick-fil-A has steadily grown to become the largest quick-service chicken restaurant chain in the United States, based on domestic annual sales with over 1,850 locations.  Chick-fil-A is still privately held and family owned. With 46 consecutive years of positive sales growth, Chick-fil-A has set itself apart by pioneering innovations and delicious products—including the ever-popular Chick-fil-A® Chicken Sandwich.

 
Ben Prine began his Career with Chick-fil-A over 23 years ago, with the last 9 years spent as the Franchise Owner here in Cookeville.
