Chick-fil-A means business when it comes to protecting its secret recipes. Truett Cathy’s original recipe is hidden in a safe at Chick-fil-A’s home office in Atlanta, Georgia. Loyal fans can attend a backstage tour to see Truett’s office and learn about the history and core values of the company. Visitors can book a deluxe tour and even get a peek inside the test kitchen to see potential future menu items.
In a 2018 Facebook post, Chick-fil-A announced the location of the secret recipe and also confirmed that “The recipe has not changed in 50 years.” The fast food chicken chain does post the ingredients for its chicken sandwiches on its website and while there’s an extensive list of seasonings, it would be virtually impossible to perfectly recreate it without Truett’s original measurements and recipe.
