Here is a remarkable story. A husband and wife were on their way to the hospital to give birth to their child.
They pulled over to drop off other daughters with a friend. That’s when Falon Griffin, the mom, had an urgent need to use the restroom.
The only thing nearby was a Chick-fil-A.
But it was closed.
The staff members cleaning up heard them banging on the doors. They gracefully let her use the restroom before they could resume their trip to the hospital.
It quickly became clear that this baby was coming NOW.
Gracelyn Mae Violet Griffin’s birth certificate will always be a conversation starter.
That’s because in the spot for “location,” it reads, “Born in Chick-fil-A,” according to a Facebook post from her father, Robert Griffin…

Ben Stover, a franchise owner of the Chick-fil-A has given the newborn free Chick-fil-A for life as a gesture. On top of that, she will have a guaranteed job when she turns 16. Not too bad. Most teenagers need a good job at that age. Gracelyn won’t have to worry at all.
Chick-fil-A is popular among most conservatives. Its founders have historically stood up for family values and traditional marriage. They are frequently attacked by critics on the left, making them only more respected by the rest of the country.
Chick-fil-A was already the Griffin family’s favorite restaurant. I’m sure now they’ll rarely eat anywhere else!
