Chick Fil-Fil-A founder Truett Cathy died today at the age of 93.

Though he pulled himself up from poverty to found one of the most successful fast food chains in America, Cathy may end up being best remembered for the controversies that resulted in part from his conservative religious beliefs.

Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy’s controversial comments on gay marriage last year did little to dampen the fast food chain's sales. On the contrary:

The company ended 2012 with $4.6 billion in sales, up 14 percent from $4.1 billion a year earlier, and it opened 96 news stores, four more than 2011.

Chick-fil-A says it will stop funding anti-gay groups, according to Chicago's Joe Moreno, the alderman whose opposition of a proposed Chick-fil-A on the Windy City's north side helped fuel the controversy surrounding the fast food chain.

The company has pledged to include a statement of respect for all sexual orientations in a memo to staffers and says that WinShape Foundations, its not-for-profit arm, would no longer contribute money to groups that oppose gay marriage.

Last week, Conan O'Brien unveiled Chaz the Intolerant Chicken, a new mascot for fast food company Chick-fil-A to use after a key sponsor, The Jim Henson Company, cut ties with them following management's anti-gay marriage comments.

Wednesday, with the story going full steam - it was Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, in which fans and conservative figures like Sarah Palin threw their support behind the embattled restaurant chain - Chaz returned to Conan's TBS show.
