Secret Recipe for Success

Chick-fil-A’s Dan Cathy on Family, Faith & Exceptional Service

In this special 3-PART MASTERCLASS, we drop you inside a Tony Robbins Business Mastery seminar to learn HOW TO BUILD A BRAND, SHOWCASE YOUR X FACTOR, and BRING YOUR UNIQUE PRODUCT or SERVICE to a COMPETITIVE MARKET.

In PART TWO, you’ll hear Tony Robbins in a one-on-one interview with DAN CATHY, the dynamic Chairman of Chick-fil-A, Inc., the iconic family-owned fast food chain specializing in chicken sandwiches.

Under Dan’s leadership, Chick-fil-A has become the 3rd largest fast food chain in America, behind McDonald’s and Starbucks. Since 2013, the company has expanded to over 2,600 restaurants in 47 states and the District of Columbia, as well as new ventures into the Asian market.
However, it’s Dan’s unwavering commitment to customer service that has been the real key element to the company’s immense success. With an emphasis on family and community, and a tireless dedication to maintaining a positive workplace culture, Chick-fil-A is more than just a fast food dining experience – it’s a model for how businesses should inspire their employees and treat their customers.

*Fun fact: Chick-fil-A has been closed on Sundays since 1946. While it’s estimated the chain loses over $1 billion in potential yearly revenue, the family continues to honor this tradition – which encourages employees to rest, spend time with family and worship (if they choose).
