Cow Spotting


Atlanta, Georgia — Okay, I’ll admit it.  I love the Chick-fil-A Cows.

In case you don’t know, Chick-fil-A is a leading quick service restaurant chain in the United States.  It’s also my day job.  We serve chicken at our 1,600 restaurants.  No beef.  So it makes sense that our chief advocates are the cows, who are focused on their own survival and encourage people to “Eat Mor Chikin.”   (The cows are not very good at spelling).

Our cows are absolute rock stars wherever they show up. People just seem to go crazy when the cows appear.  I’m a cynical former journalist who thinks he’s seen everything. Yet, when I’m shooting photos for Chick-fil-A, I find myself drawn to them.   Yes, I do know that’s not a real cow and it’s just a guy in a suit. But I can’t help myself.

It’s really fun finding the cows in unusual circumstances, such as riding on a Segway, enjoying an NBA game or striking a pose in Times Square.  So I thought I’d put together a gallery of some of my favorite cow shots.  (Check it out in the Photos section).

I hope you enjoy them and — selfishly for the sake of the cows and my children’s college fund — I hope you “Eat Mor Chikin.”
