In today’s secular world, it is hard to find businesses that practice good Christian values. Many are so concerned with profit and greed that they don’t take the time to institute business practices that are good for the company and the soul.
These are a few businesses that stand out from the crowd and aren’t afraid to be openly Christian. Some are well-known for their visible faith, others may surprise you.

The company motto is “Honoring the Lord in all we do by operating the company in a manner consistent with biblical principles”

West coast cult-favorite burger place In-n-Out:
In-N-Out Burger, known for its animal style fries, includes references to Bible verses on the bottom of their cups. Some of the verses include Revelation 3:20, John 3:16, Matthew 6:19 and 1 Corinthians 13:13.
The practice of including Bible verses on the bottom of their cups started in the 1980s under the presidency of Rich Snyder who wanted to find a better way to reflect the company’s Christian beliefs.
Similar in a lot of ways to In-n-Out, southern burger and shake outfit Cookout:
Cook-Out may be known for its hamburgers, barbecue and milkshakes served at the Cumberland Avenue and Kingston Pike locations, but an uncommon Christian atmosphere separates the chain from its fast-food counterparts. The restaurant routinely plays Christian music for patrons and displays scriptures on its wrappers and cups.
Allen Brooks, opening director at Cook-Out, said the religious influence comes from the chain’s family-oriented business model.
“In the family there’s a lot of Christian influence, and they grew up in the South. It just kind of seemed natural,” he said. “We’ve got scriptures on our cups and on the bags from the family scriptures that they like. It just kind of stood out to them.”
