ATLANTA — Chick-fil-A, the nation’s second-largest quick-service chicken restaurant chain, surpassed $3 billion in sales for the first time during fiscal 2009. The accomplishment comes three years after the company passed the $2 billion per year sales mark.
“Chick-fil-A’s continued growth, despite uncertain economic times, is a strong testament to the caliber of people who work in our restaurants,” said Dan T. Cathy, president and chief operating officer.
Chick-fil-A operates more than 1,485 restaurants in 38 states. By the end of 2009, the company will have opened 69 new stand-alone restaurants, one new mall location and 10 licensed outlets for the year.
