"Be the energy you want to attract!"
Let's start off by laying down some facts:
1.) Yes, I wasted 2 min. of my life laying out this beautiful combo meal for this blog.
2.) You need to try their peach milkshake.
This week I had the opportunity to visit the local Chick-fil-A. I've NEVER had a bad experience in 5 years. I saw a picture on twitter this week that stated, "Be the energy you want to attract". If you want to know why Chick-fil-A is the best in the fast food industry, check out the energy inside the building. When I walked in to get my usual spicy chicken deluxe combo, there were 4 people with their uniforms tucked in and they all had a smile on their faces. As I walked up to order, I'm greeted with "It's a great day at Chick-fil-A, what can I get for you?" After I placed the order, they closed with their usual statement, "My pleasure". Now as cheesy as these words may be, they matter! From the buzz of the 10 workers in the back to the words the cashiers use, Chick-fil-A projects an energy that is positive, purposeful, and contagious. I once went through the drive thru and was the 13th person in a row to have their meal paid for by the person in front of them. Of course, I wasn't going to break the chain and I paid for the person behind me.
I challenge you to find another fast food chain in which at least 14 people in a row paid for the person behind them. I would argue, it is because of the energy that Chick-fil-A promotes and the culture it has created. As you head into the weekend, start a new school year, go to work next week, chat with people at the grocery, coach your child's team, have dinner with the family, after a great day, after a crud day, consider the energy you are broadcasting and what that energy is attracting. If you need a little boost, hit the local Chick-fil-A up!
