http://www.ajc.com/business/chick-fil-a-model-1273562.html The liberals would like you to believe that business is bad, but I just went there and there was a line of 70-100 cars in the drive thru alone. The line snaked around 2 buildings and it took over an hour just to order. The sales per store was higher than any other fast food chain (including mcdonalds) despite being open only 6 days per week. It had sales of 2.7 million per store in 2010. The average franchisee takes home $190k from his restaurant...but you know what the best part is? You only need $5,000 to become a franchisee, unlike say McDonalds where you need at least $500,000 minimum.
