Dan Cathy, Chick-fil-A President, Talks Business with Cheryl Bachelder of Popeyes

Dan Cathy, then president and COO of Chick-fil-A, his family-owned company, was interviewed last year by Cheryl Bachelder, CEO of Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen. It's an exceptionally interesting interview with two outstanding franchise leaders.

Nation's Restaurant News just released the full interview, which runs 37 minutes. If you're short on time, you can read a shortened version, but the full interview is more informative.

Chick-fil-A surpassed McDonald's last year to become the nation's top fast-food chain in revenue per location, passing the $3 million mark. The company's franchisees do well, but getting on board is a highly competitive process. Cathy says in this interview that only 95 out of 22,000 recent applicants were chosen. The applicants were screened carefully to get to those 95.

Listen to the interview.
