” Chick-fil-A Inc., the Atlanta-based fast-food chain feuding with gay-rights advocates over some executives’ stance on marriage, has
served up two hidden billionaires.”

   One can’t argue with their business model .

” Chick-fil-A generated $492 million in earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization on revenue of $1.12 billion in 2011, PrivCo said. It added that the
company’s 44 percent Ebitda margin was “virtually unheard of in the restaurant industry.

  The chain has the biggest sales per unit in fast-food, according to QSR Magazine. In 2011, the company generated gross sales of $
2.9 million per location, outpacing the average unit sales of runner-up McDonald’s Corp. (MCD) by $400,000, the magazine said
in its August 2012 issue. ”

  And they do it with 15% less operating hours .

  ” “It is a very impressive business story,” said Sam Hamadeh, CEO of PrivCo, in a telephone interview. “Whatever people think of the politics, when you look at how
we quantify the amount of money they are forgoing every year by being closed on Sundays, you have to respect that.” ”

  Boycott away leftist haters . No matter what you do , the Cathys will sleep well .
