The Experience of Eating at the Chick-Fil-A Restaurant
Chick-Fil-A is a fantastic restaurant. When I walk in the door I immediately feel welcome. The colors black, white, and red, are inviting and greet you as you walk in. Chick-Fil- A is better in every aspect ranging from their customer service to their food, the ways that they help the community, and many other ways.
I have been to Chick-Fil-A more times than I can count and have never had a bad experience. One time in particular, the workers went out of their way to help me. I picked up my tray from the counter and after I took a few steps away, the tray slipped right out of my hands. One of the workers immediately came over to clean it up and told me to wait a minute. The worker came right back out with a whole new tray of food and walked with me to the table where my family was seated. Unlike some restaurants, like McDonald’s where the workers complain when they actually have to work, workers at this restaurant show excellent customer service.
At the drive-thru, I have never heard a worker have anything bad to say about the restaurant, the food, or the people they are serving. It is great to walk into a restaurant and be treated with nothing but respect. Although Chick-Fil-A is well known for their customer service they are also well known for helping the community.
Chick-Fil-A helps the community in many ways. They have many after school activities and give away a lot of scholarships. One thing that this restaurant did at my high school was partner with our PTA, Parent Teacher Association, to sell sandwiches at lunch. They sold the sandwiches to our PTA at wholesale price and then our school sold combos for five dollars so that they could make a profit. Another thing that they did for my high school was sell sandwiches at football games. They gave a percentage of their sales to the football team. These two fundraisers are our school’s main source of income outside of government funding. They do great work through their outreach program, they also stand behind their unwavering religious beliefs.
Another reason that I love Chick-Fil-A is that they stand behind their morals. They believe in going to church and have religious beliefs so they are closed on Sundays. They also speak out about hot topic issues. One example is when the CEO spoke out about gay marriage. After they spoke out, their was major backlash. The CEO never took back what they said. However after gay marriage was legalized, they said it was still wrong by their Christian beliefs, but that they were not against gay people. That is another reason why I like this restaurant.
Although I love Chick-Fil-A, there are a few downsides to it. They only serve chicken, so do not like chicken do not go there. This restaurant is also more expensive than other restaurants like McDonalds, Kentucky Fried Chicken, and Wendy’s. At Kentucky Fried Chicken you can get a full, five dollar meal which consists of a meat, a side, a drink, and a cookie for a lower price. While at Chick-Fil-A a meal, which only includes a 12-count nugget, fries, and a drink costs nine dollars. That is a four-dollar price difference, almost double. They attribute this to the fact that they use higher quality ingredients.
Although this restaurant does have higher prices I believe that their divine customer service, great food, all they do for the community, and their unwavering religious beliefs out weigh the cost. With all of these facts, I hope you realize why I believe this restaurant is the best restaurant. I would recommend that you make a trip to Chick-Fil-A next time you are looking for a good restaurant. That’s why no matter what time you drive by Chick-Fil-A the parking lot is full and there is always a line of cars wrapped around the building.
