There’s no craving stronger than that for Chick-fil-A on a Sunday. The restaurant is known for its delicious meals, breath-taking lemonade, and being closed on Sundays. After 1,000 flights were forced to stay grounded after the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport lost power for hours, the chicken chain jumped into action and broke tradition.
“It has been a very difficult day for thousands of travelers,” said Amanda Hannah, spokesperson for Chick-fil-A. “And while Chick-fil-A is always closed on Sunday, our restaurants open occasionally to serve communities in need.”
The restaurant doesn’t open on Sundays due to the founder’s Christian beliefs.
Hannah continued: “We do not make a profit but do what we can to offer comfort to people experiencing hardship.”
When word spread about the good deed, people everywhere celebrated the over 5,000 meals that were delivered.
The airport power was restored just after midnight— just two hours after the company blessed stranded passengers, proving Chick-fil-A is actually heaven sent.
