Fast-food franchise Chick-fil-A has a longstanding policy of being closed on Sundays — and even Super Bowl LIII isn't enough for the chain to make an exception to that rule.
The Chick-fil-A concession stand inside Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta will remain closed when the New England Patriots play the Los Angeles Rams on Feb. 3, the stadium's general manager, Scott Jenkins, said Monday.
The company issued a statement on its website that it wishes to remain true to the values of founder Truett Cathy, who implemented the policy starting with the franchise's first location in 1946.
"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."
Sports Illustrated reports the stadium's Chick-fil-A location will be open as "Fries Up," serving french fries and assorted toppings.
