It all started in 1995 with one message: Eat Mor Chikin. Twenty-three years later, the Chick-fil-A Cows can still be spotted all over the country – from their original home on billboards, to water towers, Major League Baseball stadiums and even on television. And just once a year, the Cows (and their lookalikes) can be found in herds at Chick-fil-A restaurants from coast to coast.
Three years ago, Thecla Scott was rocking out inside her Chick-fil-A restaurant in Jefferson, Louisiana. It was her first Cow Appreciation Day as a restaurant Team Member, and she had agreed to play the role of DJ. “That was my favorite Cow Appreciation Day,” she remembers. “Thankfully, the guests loved my music!”
New York City has it all: theatre, museums, shopping – and in early 2018 four Chick-fil-As. Just two years ago, Chick-fil-A opened its first restaurant in NYC, and now the “Eat Mor Chikin” Cows are putting on their suspenders, polishing their hooves and heading downtown as Chick-fil-A prepares to open its largest restaurant ever in Lower Manhattan.

What were you doing 20 years ago? “Titanic” was in theaters, the Spice Girls were climbing the charts… and the Chick-fil-A Cows were preparing for their calendar debut. It marked the beginning of a two-decade run filled with udderly ridiculous costumes, and opportunities for the Cows’ biggest fans to collect free treats.
When fans entered the all-new Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on September 2 for the first of two Chick-fil-A Kickoff Games, they were met with new sights, sounds and excitement. But one familiar gameday tradition made the new stadium feel just like home: more than 4,000 cows parachuting down from the stadium rafters.
