ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 3, 2022--

a first-of-its-kind business leader initiative that highlights corporate generosity, today announced it has honored Georgia-based Chick-fil-A as a winner of the champion award for 2022.

Chick-fil-A and its Chairman Dan Cathy were nominated and selected for this award by fellow Georgia business leaders because of the organization’s success in consistently executing with care and generosity in the little things, those meaningful daily moments of service valued by Chick-fil-A culture across decades of generosity.

“We have a mission statement to be the world's most caring company. What does it mean to be the world's most caring company? We know that really, it's the subtleties of a lot of behaviors that consistently happen all over the organization, embodied by leaders, lived out by leaders,” says Dan Cathy. “That leadership ripples throughout the whole organization, so that customers in drive-thru lines, in our dining rooms, and other places feel cared for through a lot of little things that we do.”

“goBeyondProfit Champion award winners like Chick-fil-A and Dan Cathy demonstrate exemplary leadership,” said goBeyondProfit President Megan McCamey. “They offer a road map for excellence in business generosity from daily operations to the contributions they make to improve the lives of everyone that comes in contact with their company.”
