Truett Cathy, founder and chairman of Chick-fil-A restaurants, will speak to Baylor University students in Chapel at 10 and 11 a.m. Monday, Nov. 5, in Waco Hall.

Cathy, along with his younger brother Ben, opened his first restaurant, the Dwarf Grill (which later was renamed the Dwarf House) in Hapeville, Ga. The restaurant was small with 10 counter stools and four tables. During the late 1950s, he began experimenting with different seasonings and a faster way to prepare great tasting chicken. He developed the combination that would lead to Chick-fil-A's success by the early 1960s.

Chick-fil-A is one of the largest privately-held restaurant chains and the third largest quick service chicken restaurant company in the nation.
