Chick-fil-A Pay It Forward Chain Lasts 38 Cars

Photos: Chick-fil-A Temple Terrace

A Chick-fil-A in Tampa, Florida recently had a pay-it-forward chain go through its drive-thru that lasted for 38 cars. While this isn't much in the grand scheme of things — Starbucks has had chains that last 800 and nearly 1500 cars, although that's just coffee —what makes this different is the woman who started the chain actually ended up looping back through the chain again. According to the Tampa Tribune, when Cherie Miller got home from the fast food restaurant, she realized she'd forgotten an order of chicken nuggets. When she returned to the restaurant, she was astounded to find people were still paying for the drive-thru order of the car behind them. As an added bonus, the pay-it-forward chain happened on a night when the Chick-fil-A location was raising funds for a nearby youth group; they raised enough to send 10-15 kids to camp.
