KFC keeps hold of the number one spot based on the fact that they have a wider variety of fried Chicken, and the more important reason being that they are a bigger franchise than Chick-fil-a is. Chick-fil-A is affected by a few different government regulations one being food regulations through the FDA, Food and Drug Administration, for the food that they serve. They would also be set up for regular visits, yearly or every six months, from the health inspector from the county they are in to make sure they are keeping their store clean and up to code.

Therefore, Cathy developed a unique franchise opportunity that he deployed first to malls and then to stand alone stores based on his core values of conservatism, encouraging corporate social responsibility, and entrepreneurship (Cathy, 2013). It allowed others to cover the majority of the variable costs of running a restaurant, while he assumed much of the fixed costs of building the restaurant so he could retain more control than competitors. Unique Franchise Model After making it through a strenuous interview process, a person can become a Chick-fil-a franchisee or “Operator” for only $5,000 which is substantially lower than the industry average (Cathy, 2013).What Chick-fil-A gives up in terms of initial fees, it makes up for in other areas. In general, Chick-fil-A requires operators to cover between $250,000 and $900,000 for the location's variable costs such as inventory, as well as fixed costs such as equipment rental, insurance, location leasing fees, and other operation fees (Malloch and Grem, 2010). This allows the corporation to have minimal variable costs as most are covered by Operators.
Chick-Fil-A, originally known as the Dwarf Grill, was founded by S. Truett Cathy in Hapeville in 1946. Out to create something new for a food market that was dominated at the time by fast food burgers, Cathy began to sell boneless chicken sandwiches.

Danielle Alderson is proud to be an owner amongst those units.

In terms of fast food restaurant life span, even twenty-five years in business can seem like an eternity. In an article published in the New York Times, it was reported that instead of advertising heavily, franchising or redesigning stores, White Castle relied on a simple menu of a square little hamburger that die-hard fans would buy by the bagful and devour in one sitting (Siler, 1988). Although the article was published in 1988, much of White Castle’s promotion has remained the same. This paper discusses a number of strategies that have contributed to the sustainability of the White Castle’s hamburger; identifies the intangible aspects such as crave times and company culture which has contributed to the company’s growth; and discusses the marketing strategies that have contributed to the product’s lengthy life cycle in the fast food business. In an article in Investor’s Business Daily, it was revealed that one of the keys to White Castle’s success has been the company’s ability to keep family in management positions.
