Pastors of 101 Ohio churches of various denominations have united around their common love of Chick-fil-A. The pastors, who are members of the Richland Community Prayer Network, released a statement supporting the building of a stand-alone Chick-fil-A in Richland, Ohio after a food truck from the popular restaurant made several stops in the city in July, Frontlines Ohio reports.
The list of ways Chick-fil-A workers go the extra mile for customers now includes prayer.
Brittany Calden was eating at a Chick-fil-A at Madison, Ala., earlier this month when she saw long-time employee Stephen Spray talking to another customer. Soon, Spray put his hand on the customer and began praying for her, Fox 5 Atlanta reported.
A restaurant that has a corporate mission to “glorify God” is officially the third-largest restaurant in the United States. Chick-fil-A climbed from No. 7 to No. 3 in the latest rankings by the Nation's Restaurant News (NRN) analysis after it had $10.46 billion in total sales in 2018, trailing only behind No. 1 McDonald’s ($38.52 billion) and No. 2 Starbucks ($20.49 billion). Chick-fil-A passed Subway to take the third spot.
