The Real Story Behind “My Pleasure”

  • News

Have you ever wondered why Chick-fil-A employees say “My Pleasure” instead of “You’re Welcome”? Our founder Truett Cathy established Chick-fil-A as a company that values people. He is quoted as saying:

“We’re not just in the chicken business, we’re in the people business.”

About 15 years ago Cathy decided to make “my pleasure” Chick-fil-A’s official response to customers after it was said to him during his visit to a Ritz-Carlton.  The phrase so impressed him that Cathy saw the opportunity to emulate the Ritz-Carlton in making Chick-fil-A guests feel like they are in a high-class establishment during each visit. 

So now when a team member brings your meal to your table or offers to refresh your beverage and responds with “my pleasure”, you’ll understand it’s because we’re in the people business.

If you would like to be a part of a company that values people and delivers extraordinary service, we have open positions available.  Visit our career page to learn more and apply today.
