The Atlanta Falcons have good news and bad news for their fans in the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
The infamous southern food chain Chic-Fil-A will have a restaurant inside of the stadium, but it will be closed on Sundays.
So as you watch the dirty birds drive up and down the turf on Sundays, their will be no chicken sandwiches with Polynesian sauce on the side.
And when you thought it couldn’t get any worse the Atlanta Falcons only host one of their 8 home games — on Thursday December 7th versus the New Orleans Saints.
Chains founder Truett Cathy vows to uphold his religious fueled tradition of Chic-Fil-A being closing on the last day of the week SUNDAY. On a brighter note the Atlanta based chain provides a restaurant experience for the Atlanta Braves Suntrust Park stadium as well so if you cant get you sports and Chic-Fil-A experience from a Falcons game makes sure you check out the Braves.
“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.”
