The owner of the Jett Ferry Road Chick-fil-A restaurant says his store has given away more sandwiches than it sold last year. To commemorate the 6,000 sandwich mark in the store’s “Feed Your Herd to Feed the Homeless” event, Dunwoody Mayor Mike Davis took a pie in the face Dec. 18 at 11 a.m.
Grant Wells, the owner of the Chick-fil-A restaurant, with help from Marketing Manager Mark Bartolucci, set a goal to give away 10,000 lunches to feed the homeless. By partnering with several local charities, including The Salvation Army, the restaurant is donating 10 percent of all food orders when customers say they want a portion of their bill to go toward feeding the homeless. In addition, people can choose to purchase for $5.69 a boxed lunch. The event started Nov. 24 and continues through Dec. 24.
Davis first pushed a cream pie into the face of Wells and then a store employee drawing determined who would push pie in the mayor’s face. Watch below.
