Atlanta is home to many a corporate giant. And one of the more recent trends in tourism, is to see the inner workings of some of America’s most well-known brands.

Coca-Cola and CNN have long capitalized on brand tours, now add Georgia’s own Chick-fil-A to the list.

A new 90-minute walking tour is being offered at the Atlanta headquarters. It features the life story of Truett Cathy, Chick-fil-A’s founder.

Visitors are also treated to a behind-the-scenes look at Chick-fil-A’s food and a chance to meet the famous Chick-fil-A Cows.

According to a report at AJC.com, “It’s really been an organic process,” Juliet Hall, Chick-fil-A’s manager of sponsorships and event marketing, said of the tours. “When people come to Atlanta, we don’t want them to just think of CNN or Coke, we want them to come to Chick-fil-A, too.”

Chick-fil-A expects up to 20,000 visitors per year.
