Item Description...
S. Truett Cathy is a real-life, living Horatio Alger story. Growing up in a boarding house his mother operated during the Great Depression, he learned the principles of hard work, fairness, honesty, loyalty, and respect. When he opened a small restaurant in 1946 with his brother Ben, he put those principles to work and immediately began to experience their rewards.

Twenty-three years later Cathy opened the first Chick-fil-A restaurant, which was unique in America in two ways: it served the first boneless breast chicken sandwich, and it was the first fast-food restaurant to operate in a shopping mall. Today there are more than one thousand Chick-fil-A restaurants with more than $1 billion in sales annually while adhering to a policy unknown in the fast-food business -- Chick-fil-A is closed on Sundays.

Truett Cathy's commitment reaches far beyond the people who work and eat in his restaurants. Through the WinShape. Centre Foundation, funded by Chick-fil-A, he operates foster homes for more than 120 children, sponsors a summer camp for more than 1,600 children, and has provided college scholarships for more than 16,500 students.

In Eat Mor Chikin: Inspire More People, Truett Cathy challenges readers to focus on people and principles. The principles he outlines in this book have brought success to his business, and he insists that anyone who follows them will surely enjoy similar results.

Author Truett Cathy believes in building businesses by building people. He practices what he preaches --- his Chick-Fil-A stores are places where employees are treated like family and offered many chances to succeed. Cathy, who not only believes in mentoring but has spent a lifetime practicing it, writes an inspiring book about how to improve yourself by helping others.

"Can't miss" business plan?  Nov 13, 2006
Why is S. Truett Cathy so successful? The answers are in this book. It's not rocket science. Work hard. Make people a priority. Live your values. Nail the fundamentals and most other things tend to fall into place. For Chick-Fil-A, the fundamentals are Customers, Cleanliness, and Quality. No surprises there. But the difference is in the execution of these values. How does he do it better than the rest? He hires the right people. People who care a lot. People who have character that match the character of Truett. After he hires them, he inspires and motivates them. The result is a fast food chain that is among the best.

Truett makes no secret that his values come from being a Christian. His faith isn't a private thing. It encompasses every part of his life and is deeply integrated into the business. He actually believes that applying biblical teachings brings success. He gives numerous examples of this throughout his life. The official statement of corporate purpose says that they exist "to glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that is entrusted to us and to have a positive influence on all who come in contact with Chick-fil-A." Is that any way to run a fast food chain? Apparently it is; they now have well over 1200 restaurants and more than $2,000,000,000.00 in annual revenues. Truett has achieved this success steadily over many years. He never went public (IPO), like most larger restaurant chains do. His method makes me think of a few Proverbs:

"The plans of the diligent lead to profit as surely as haste leads to poverty."

"Those who work their land will have abundant food, but those who chase fantasies have no sense."

"Do you see those who are skilled in their work? They will serve before kings."

This book should be required reading for managers in the fast food industry. As one of Truett's top managers says; the method followed is "can't miss." Normally that kind of comment would fire up my skepticism, but after reading this book, I know just what he means.
 
Eat Mor Chikin: Inspire More People  Jul 13, 2006
This book was very good. It encouraged people to respect each person as an individual and help them build ownership and self respect in their work ethics. It also shared the rewarding value of performing service and giving credit where credit is due.
