America’s second-largest chicken restaurant pioneered the concept of quick-service shopping mall eateries in 1967, along with the first chicken sandwich. With annual sales of $3.5 billion, the company opened its first Orange County store in the Irvine Marketplace more than seven years ago. Today, there are 10 stores in O.C. and more than 1,500 nationally. A contrarian in the round-the-clock fast-food industry, Chick-fil-A’s are not open on Sundays, reflecting the chain’s conservative roots.
