About Chick-fil-A Denver

Chick-fil-A Denver serves the Greater Denver Front Range through restaurants spanning from Longmont up north all the way south to Castle Rock, and from Southlands in the east to Denver West next to the foothills. All with the same commitment to superior service and food you can feel good about.

The first Colorado Chick-fil-A restaurant opened in 1978 in the food court of the Town Center at Aurora. Today Denver is one of the fastest-growing Chick-fil-A markets in the country.

Why We’re Closed on Sundays

Our founder, Truett Cathy, made the decision to close on Sundays in 1946 when he opened his first restaurant in Hapeville, Georgia. Having worked seven days a week in restaurants open 24 hours, Truett saw the importance of closing on Sundays so that he and his employees could set aside one day to rest and worship if they choose — a practice we uphold today.

Corporate Purpose

“To glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that is entrusted to us and to have a positive influence on all who come into contact with Chick-fil-A.”

S. Truett Cathy

1921 – 2014

Chick-fil-A, Inc., Founder S. Truett Cathy died Sept. 8, 2014, at age 93. Cathy started the business in 1946, when he and his brother, Ben, opened an Atlanta diner known as The Dwarf Grill (later renamed The Dwarf House®). Through the years, that restaurant prospered and led Cathy to further the success of his business. In 1967, Cathy founded and opened the first Chick-fil-A restaurant in Atlanta’s Greenbriar Shopping Center. Today, Chick-fil-A has the highest same-store sales and is the largest quick-service chicken restaurant chain in the United States based on annual system-wide sales.

Cathy was the author of six books and was a committed philanthropist dedicated to making a difference in the lives of youth. He was the recipient of countless awards over the years, both for his business acumen and for his charity. With his wife of 65 years, Jeannette McNeil Cathy, he led a life that was centered on biblical principles and family, and is survived by his sons Dan T. and Don “Bubba” Cathy; daughter Trudy Cathy White; 12 grandchildren and 23 great-grandchildren.
