S. Truett Cathy is a devout Southern Baptist; his religious beliefs have a major impact on the company.The company’s official statement of corporate purpose says that the business exists “To glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that is entrusted to us. To have a positive influence on all who come in contact with Chick-fil-A.”

Cathy’s beliefs are also responsible for one of the chain’s distinctive features: All Chick-fil-A locations are closed on Sundays, as well as on Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Cathy states as the final step in his Five-Step recipe for Business Success “I was not so committed to financial success that I was willing to abandon my principles and priorities. One of the most visible examples of this is our decision to close on Sunday. Our decision to close on Sunday was our way of honoring God and of directing our attention to things that mattered more than our business.”
