Chick-fil-A Goes Global

Following continued success throughout the United States Chick-fil-A has made the decision to invest $1 billion to bring their signature crispy chicken sandwich overseas and begin opening stores in both Europe and Asia.

Chick-fil-A has always had a relatively simple menu focusing nearly entirely on poultry, however, that simplicity has proved to pay off as Chick-fil-A has become the third largest fast food chain within the United States behind only McDonalds and Starbucks.

The success of Chick-fil-A gives the company hope that they will continue to have success around the globe and intend on opening stores within Asia and Europe by 2026 and continue further around the globe by 2030.

CEO Andrew Cathy stated that while there is a further expansion for Chick-fil-A within the U.S. an overseas expansion is the clear next step for the company as it charts its future.
