“We should be about more than just selling chicken. We should be part of our customers’ lives and the communities in which we serve. ”

Truett’s Chick-fil-A

Chick-fil-A aficionados often travel great distances to visit a unique throwback known as a Chick-fil-A Dwarf House®, modeled after the late founder Truett Cathy’s original restaurant opened in 1946 in Hapeville, Georgia. The restaurant was so “tiny” — only 10 stalls and 4 tables — that Cathy and his brother decided to call the restaurant the Dwarf Grill (later renamed Dwarf House).

Chick-fil-A Dwarf House, a classic diner-style restaurant located in Newnan, Georgia, was approaching 30 years old and producing at capacity with no room to increase output when the leadership was faced with a choice: remodel the existing restaurant or clear the way for something new.
