Working 24 Hours Straight at Chick-fil-A | Bon Appetit

  • Published: 04 April 2016
  • Bon Appetit Deputy Editor Andrew Knowlton works 24 hours straight at the original Chick-fil-A in Hapeville, Georgia. Upside: unlimited waffle fries.

    Andrew makes breakfast, freshly-squeezed Chick-fil-a lemonade, the legendary Chick-fil-a biscuit, waffle fries, fried chicken sandwiches, and works the drive-thru. Did he find the secret ingredients in the chicken sandwich? Did he actually hallucinate at four in the morning while working the drive-through?

    "I met proud and amazing people from all walks of life who work for Chick-fil-A. Those are the people I support by eating a chicken sandwich."

    Knowlton gets a tour of the fast food restaurant along with some training and a history lesson.

                            OMG working 24 hrs seems horrible. Let alone in fast food. Also I legit did not realize they bread their own chicken in the resteraunt. I literally thought that they were just frozen breaded chicken that was fried and I couldn't figure out why they taste so good. That makes so much more sense. Also I did not know they had hashbrowns!

                                    @King Carnage Look bud there's nothing wrong with working at chik fil a, it's just an entry-level job. No need to project your own insecurities of working at an entry-level job by defending her honor.
