Companies that believe in Christmas

    It is a week following Christmas and this column is about two companies whose owners really believe in Christmas. Earlier this year, a Chick-fil-A restaurant opened about a mile down College Avenue from where we are living. They had a lot of publicity about their Grand Opening. One thing they offered was a free dinner every week for a year to their first 100 customers. Their parking lot was full of tents the night before the opening with people wanting to be the first 100 in the restaurant. That would be worth losing a night’s sleep as the gift card is worth over $400 for each one, and over a total of $40,000 of gifts given by Chick-fil-A.
