|Local franchise under attack|
An American business is under attack! Started in America more than 60 years ago, it has grown to over 1,500 stores in 39 states. We have three in our own community. Why are they being attacked! Because their stated corporate mission is to "glorify God and enrich the lives of everyone we touch."
The business was founded in Georgia and is run as a family business by devout Christians who believe in strong marriages and the highest standards of character for their workers. They have defied the corporate wisdom of closing on Sunday to give their employees a day to worship and to spend with their families. They support community service projects thru their WinShape Foundation including foster care, summer camps, and marriage enrichment programs. They have awarded more than $26 million to their employees for scholarships to the school of their choice.
In case you have not guessed, the business is Chick-fil-A Restaurants. David Benson is the local owner of the Chick-fil-A restaurants. He and his wife Lana have two children, Janna a senior at LSU Law School and Beau, a senior at West Monroe High School and a member of the Rebel football team.
