Once again, social media has revealed that for the popular fast food restaurant Chick-Fil-A, business is apparently as much about witnessing for faith nearly as much as it is about making money and selling food.

After Joey Mustain and his young daughter stopped by a Murfreesboro, Tenn., Chick-Fil-A, he witnessed a homeless man walking into the store. Instead of being thrown out as a nuisance, the outlet’s manager took time to serve the man.

On his now viral Facebook page, Mustain reported what he saw during his visit.

Mustain wrote that he and his daughter had just sat down to eat when the homeless man came in. He was wearing a large backpack and sported a shaggy beard and unkempt hair, and wore mud-caked boots. The homeless man walked up to the counter workers and asked if they had any “extra food” he could eat.

When the store’s manager emerged from behind the counter, Mustain assumed the homeless man would be thrown out. But instead, he witnessed a far different scene than the one he expected.

“All I could pick up on of the conversation,” Mustain wrote, “was the manager saying that he’d love to give him a full, warm meal–not just scraps or extras–and the only thing he required was that the man let him pray with him.”

According to Mustain, after the homeless man agreed to the manager’s request, the manager immediately took time to serve the bedraggled newcomer. Mustain said approvingly, “there was no waiting for things to die down, there was no scooting anyone to the side.”

“As busy as they were,” Mustain wrote, “the manager stopped then and there, laid his hand on the man, and proceeded to pray. I heard love in that prayer. The homeless man wasn’t some untouchable stain on business. He was the reason that store opened its doors this morning (or any morning).”

The customer said his daughter also bowed her head to pray when she realized what was going on.

“I realized then and there that Chick-fil-A doesn’t simply do business for profits, they truly use business to minister,” Mustain wrote in amazement. “In a time when companies are trying to win in the market by neutralizing any possibility of offense, CFA is thriving because they unwaveringly cling to their principles and purpose.”

“I love teaching my daughter life lessons, and I also love being there to watch other Christians teach her life lessons. Thank you, Chick-fil-A, for taking care of the latter today,” Mustain concluded.

Following the loving Facebook post and the photo Mustain snapped of the manager and the homeless man, over a hundred delighted replies were posted. The post has also been shared almost 28,000 times as of this writing.

I took Stella to Chick-fil-A today. It’s our normal daddy/daughter spot. It’s clean, so good, and the playground has a tractor beam on her the moment she sees it. When we finished eating and she’d worked up her dessert appetite playing with the other kids, we went back to trade in her toy for ice cream. She wanted to sit at a table to eat the cone (something we usually do in the truck), and I’m so glad she did. We took a booth right next to the spot where you wait for your drink to be “refreshed,” and we had a front row seat to this beautiful scene: a homeless traveler had walked in and asked if they had any extra food. Mud was wet and caked on his well-traveled shoes. His hair was matted, and his beard wasn’t a statement as much as it was a necessity and a sign that he doesn’t get to shave as often as most of us do. People near him kept their distance, but that didn’t stop him from being kind. He spoke to people who reluctantly spoke back, and he smiled while he waited on a manager. All I could pick up on of the conversation was the manager saying that he’d love to give him a full, warm meal–not just scraps or extras–, and the only thing he required was that the man let him pray with him. After the homeless man agreed, there was no waiting for things to die down, there was no scooting anyone to the side. As busy as they were, the manager stopped then and there, laid his hand on the man, and proceeded to pray. I heard love in that prayer. The homeless man wasn’t some untouchable stain on business. He was the reason that store opened its doors this morning (or any morning). I asked Stella to watch and she stared. She asked what was happening and when I told her, she bowed her head, too. I realized then and there that Chick-fil-A doesn’t simply do business for profits, they truly use business to minister. In a time when companies are trying to win in the market by neutralizing any possibility of offense, CFA is thriving because they unwaveringly cling to their principles and purpose. I love teaching my daughter life lessons, and I also love being there to watch other Christians teach her life lessons. Thank you, Chick-fil-A, for taking care of the latter today.
