Atlanta-based fast food chain Chick-fil-A has recorded its 42nd consecutive year of sales growth, the company announced today. That's more than $3.2 billion in annual sales — up nearly 9 percent year-to-year. Chick-fil-A President and COO Dan T. Cathy said the company can thank exceptional customer service and unmatched quality for the continued success, before adding in the statement, "We have sensed God’s continued blessings on this business, especially during these unprecedented economic times.” Thanking God in an earnings report? You may recall a Vicki Mabrey profile of Chick-fil-A last year in our Ten Commandments series, which featured its quirky promotions, a devout following, and a Christian influence. The commandment in question? Respect the Sabbath. The segment, entitled "Never on Sundays," is embedded below.
