When Chick-fil-A founder Truett Cathy invented what is now known as the Original Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich in 1964, he had no idea it would stand the test of time and still be a favorite today.
Picture this: You’re hungry and you pull up to your favorite restaurant, only to discover that it’s closed for renovations for a few months. Your stomach grumbles. Your chicken sandwich dreams begin to fade. That is, until you notice another restaurant beside it made from… shipping containers? That’s exactly what happened after the Newnan Dwarf House closed its little red door on March 24.
