Survey: Chick-fil-A is once again teenagers’ favorite restaurant chain
Chick-fil-A is once again teenagers’ favorite restaurant chain. It is the chicken chains fourth time making the top of the list.
This birthday boy knows giving back is the greatest gift.
When one Georgia boy turned 11, he didn’t ask for video games or sneakers popular among the middle school set. Instead, the kindhearted kid spent his birthday money on Chick-fil-A for the homeless in the local area. Touched, the chicken-centric chain has since invited the youngster to star in an upcoming commercial.
Brycen Gault recently celebrated his eleventh birthday, and wanted to use the special occasion to pay it forward, WJBF reports.

"During the pandemic, a lot of people lost their jobs so they don’t have a lot of food and toys for their kid," Gault said.
With a little help from his mom Lakeya Collins, Brycen used the $150 he received in birthday bucks to buy 20 meals from Chick-fil-A. From there, the Evans family gave out the food to the homeless in Augusta.
"As we were pulling away from feeding the homeless for his birthday, he said, ‘Mom do you feel that?'" Collins recalled. "I said ‘feel what?’ He said, ‘Those chills from God.’"
