Chick-fil-A isn't open on Sundays. It's missing out on more than $1B in sales

Truett Cathy, the founder of Chick-fil-A, made the decision when he started the fast-food company in 1946 that it would not be open on Sundays. He believed that the first day of the week should be for employees to have "one day to rest and worship if they choose." The decision, based on deeply held principles, is even more extraordinary given what Chick-fil-A gives up financially. Chick-fil-A had revenue of more than $10 billion in 2018, according to the company's corporate financials. That figure came from the operation of 2,400 restaurants in 47 states and Washington, D.C. It was the 51st consecutive year of top-line growth, which means that the company is a rare one, as it grew through several recessions, particularly the Great Recession of a decade ago. — USA Today
