For most people, fast food is a huge part of their daily lives. According to a recent Gallup poll, eight out of 10 Americans eat at fast-food restaurants at least once a month. A BBC survey in the UK found that “most people” eat fast food around two days per week, and that one in six people between the ages of 16 and 20 eat fast food at least twice a day.

Chick-fil-A is almost always closed on Sundays. The reason behind this can be traced back to the company’s founder, Truett Cathy. Per the Chick-fil-A website, “Having worked seven days a week in restaurants open 24 hours, Truett saw the importance of closing on Sundays so that he and his employees could set aside one day to rest and worship if they choose – a practice we uphold today.”

The chain has broken protocol for a few notable exceptions, like locations in North Carolina that opened in the midst of Hurricane Florence.
