      Christians starting fast food chains and then making the business so openly religious. Plus the fact that they're always a cut above the rest and seem to be immune to being hurt by any amount of protesting, boycotting, and other attacks from people who are anti-Christian.

        It's the culture of the Southern Bible Belt. These restaurants are founded in an area that has a lot of Christians. They get established and popular because they are Christian. The food being good has to do with Southern cooking being good.

        They cannot be canceled because when they are founded they were very openly Christian and when anything is honest about what it is from the beginning, it attracts people who support that. The people who would attempt to cancel them weren't customers in the first place. They would only be canceled if they started supporting things that are anti-Christian. Likewise, several Youtubers who are popular for saying "controversial" and/or fricked up things are not able to be canceled because they built their audience around those statements or sense of humor. If I'm a comedian who got popular for telling racist jokes, I would only lose my audience if I stopped telling racist jokes.

Never heard of Culver's before, but apparently they do well in Florida. We north-easterners don't get any good food except seafood. Our Cracker Barrels suck. I always eat good when I go down south.

        From experience when you follow it you generally stop worrying about things as much as the average person. You’re more focused on religion than business and with Chrustianity’s teachings the usual business practices of ‘MAKE THE MOST MONEY’ ‘EXPAND’, and ‘BE BETTER THAN THE COMPETITION’ don’t have as much control. So with that gone you just end up wanting to do a good job and wind up with a good product and the business expands naturally from there.

        But why fast food and almost nothing else? What draws passionately Christian businessmen to fast food specifically?

        I mean… I guess you could say charity in a weird way? Feeding of the masses and Eucharist and stuff. I’m not sure if it’s that though.

      Though Kroger has bought most of them out, many regional grocery chains used to be Christian. Even Kroger at one time was Christian run. The main chain where I lived as a kid was 'Food World' and they always had a Crucifix over the door at their stores. There are probably a lot more Christian businesses than you realize but you simply filter them out, not noticing details like the cross on the wall.

        This should be the end of the thread, OP. It's far more than fast food, silly. I work with a Nobel Prize winner, and I've met a few like him, and you'd be really surprised how many scientists are absoutely not atheist. I would say it's a majority. It's just more taboo to talk faith until you know the other person has it.

          There's a particular brand of American stupidity that thinks that science disproves the existence of God. And that conversely, if a scientist believes in God that means that science proves the existence of God.

          Both of these ideas are false. Science is based on observable facts. Religion is based on personal faith.

        I don't really think so, for any X there's a Christian version of it, but fast food allows you to serve a lot of people, like Jesus did with the fish that one time, and helps people to keep working and being on time in this face paced consumerist society. And food is always something religious groups love to serve to ward off hunger. It's an innate human need.

        It's simply not nothing else. Cracker Barrel comes to mind. But think about it. Pretty much the majority of Mexicans are practicing catholics, as well as Italian families. Why focus on chains? As another anon said, most americans are Christians. Most diners that I eat at are owned by Greek Orthodox families and you'll find they are wearing a cross and have several pictures around the restaurant stating the same. There are at least 6 Ukrainian churches near me. The list goes on and on. Athiests are only the majority in Europe.

        Because fast food is a very competitive industry and the market selects for three things: price, quality of food, and convenience. You have to do something very overt and out of line like Chik-fil-a supporting conversion camps to even slow business.

    Clothing chain 'Forever 21' prints John 3:16 on its shopping bags and sells clothes with Christian themes. Alaskan Air prints Bible passages on its food service trays. Many other businesses use Christian principles to guide their operating practices, even if they don't print Christian themes on everything. It's far from restricted just to fast food.

    I think a lot of Christian owned businesses should be more diverse and invite Muslims and israelites to come in and culturally enrich them. It just seems wrong somehow that Christians are allowed to have the freedom to practice their religion without interference. Those businesses need more diversity, inclusion, and equity.

          They knew better how to prepare food for safety and health. Preparing nuts and grains so they're not toxic, fermenting foods to promote gut health, and so on. Techniques we just decided to drop and forget about and are only just re-learning and understanding how important all of it is. The Enlightenment era where everyone just decided to forsake tradition and only do what's "scientifically proven" fricked everyone up for centuries and we're feeling the consequences now more than ever.

    Historically speaking, devout protestants were the best merchants, particularly Dutch Calvinists and American puritans, because they came from educated middle class backgrounds and always treated their employees and partners well. They didn't lie, cheat or embezzle and actually tried to provide a good service, so would also attract the best employees. Based on what people here say about Chick-fil-a, I would warrant you're seeing a vestige of that same spirit.

    Food Chains are not the most common openly Christian imaged businesses. It's contractors and construction. Chain X may have national/international presence but is still one business. Meanwhile a local contractor with a business comprised One Guy with a Truck™ or >20 employees is pretty common to see patriotic decals and Christian cross/Jesus silhouettes.

    If you actually go to Chick-fil-a it's just a nice fast food place. It's clean, the service is good, their food is good, the price isn't bad either. There's no reason for it to not be popular. In practice the only religious aspect you're going to run into is that they aren't open on Sunday.
