Truett Cathy, who passed away on September 8, 2014, is famous for founding the popular restaurant chain Chick-fil-A. Mr. Cathy was known for his strong work ethic and as a devoted Christian believer. While Cathy’s 2012 comments in opposition to homosexual marriage created outrage within the LGBT community and prompted a boycott of the privately held Chick-fil-A restaurant chain, the restaurant owner was known for so much more.

There are many Christian-run businesses out there, including some really high-profile ones. Here are seven of them--some of which we bet you didn't know were Christian-based! As Christians called to be good stewards of our resources, it's important to be educated on where we're spending our money. Next time you are looking to make a purchase, perhaps you may want to seek out these faith-focused places of business.
