   The new world record for the Largest Sweet Tea was set during an all-day celebration at Nienhuis Park in Broken Arrow, Okla.

   Operators and team members from five Chick-fil-A restaurants worked with volunteers from schools, churches and community groups throughout the Tulsa area to create the World's  Largest Sweet Tea

    The process required 72 pounds of tea leaves, 1,150 pounds of sugar, one ton of ice and 912 gallons of water.

    "In the midst of the heat wave we've been experiencing in Oklahoma, there was no shortage of people looking for a nice cold glass of sweet tea and we were glad to oblige," said Greeno.

   "We couldn't have made it happen without the help of our staff and neighbors throughout Tulsa gathering supplies, brewing the tea and coming out to cheer us on."

    The achievement marks the second Guinness World Record for Tulsa Chick-fil-A Operator Arthur Greeno, who set the record for world’s largest soft drink when he created an 834-gallon cup of freshly-squeezed Chick-fil-A lemonade in 2008.

    The Chick-fil-A Kid's Meal program is partnering with Guinness World Records to challenge children across the country to set their own records this summer.

   Atlanta-based Chick-fil-A, Inc. is the nation's second-largest quick-service chicken restaurant chain (based on sales), currently with 1,500 restaurants in 38 states and Washington D.C.
