Chick-fil-A is a private company, so accurate financial information is hard to find. However, it’s estimated that they earned $4 billion in revenue in 2011.
The first Chick-fil-A was opened in 1967, in the Greenbriar Mall outside of Atlanta. Initially, the chain expanded by opening new franchises in the food courts of suburban malls. In fact, it wasn’t until 1986 that the first free-standing restaurant was opened. In more recent years, expansion is focused almost exclusively on free-standing franchises and not the food courts.
By the end of 2012, Chick-fil-A had more than 1,000 free-standing restaurants, most of which are located in suburban areas.
