What Is Chick-Fil-A’s Core Competence?

 

That would be chicken, yes? Finally, a couple of years ago, we got our first Chick-Fil-A here in the Pacific Northwest, and it has met all our expectations.

And each day the line to enter winds down the sidewalk.

Just another success story the Mainstream Media won’t tell you.
