Chick-fil-A’s founder, S. Truett Cathy, believed a “great company is a caring company.” His vision of caring for others continues to inspire us today — as we fight hunger in the local communities we serve, provide Team Members with leadership and skills development and educational opportunities, and continually look for ways to bring additional sustainable practices into everything we do.

From wellness programs and community volunteering engagements to leadership opportunities and a supportive work environment, we foster a culture at Chick-fil-A which enables people to thrive. Its leadership and growth opportunities are just a few reasons Chick-fil-A was named a Best Employer in America by Forbes in 2022. We also recognize many of our hardworking Team Members may be balancing work with their studies — and we prioritize supporting their education. Since 1970, Chick-fil-A has invested more than US$112 million in scholarships to help more than 67,000 Team Members pursue a college degree, including these remarkable Canadian recipients here.
The Chick-fil-A scholarship initiative has been instrumental in our investment in the growth and success of restaurant Team Members. We recognize their enormous potential and hope to play a small part in furthering their education, providing them with more opportunities to help achieve their goals.

From Chick-fil-A Support Center Staff to our local, independent franchised Operators, we are devoted to serving the communities in which we operate. Our True Inspiration Awards™ program is one way we help community nonprofits expand their impact, by giving grants ranging from $30,000 to $350,000, with a collective $5 million awarded annually. The Chick-fil-A™ Community Scholars program helps pay for the education of leaders in our communities who want to continue learning.

We’re working to conserve resources, including reducing food waste and what we send to landfills, recycling plastics and decreasing energy use, to help protect the world we share. We also work on other ways to improve the sustainability of our food. For example, by sending pre-squeezed lemon juice to our restaurants instead of whole lemons, we’ve removed the equivalent of the emissions produced by 689 gas-powered cars annually.
