Tulsa Chik-Fil-A Sets World Record

A Tulsa Chik-Fil-A restaurant squeezes out a new Guinness world record.

Workers and volunteers at the 71st and Garnett location made a whopping 839 gallons of fresh-squeezed lemonade.

The drink required 1,050 pounds of sugar, 580 gallons of water, 250 pounds of ice and 11,730 lemons.

A Guinness book representative was there to make it the official largest cup of soft drink in the world.

Mayor Kathy Taylor also helped to make the record-setting beverage.

Smaller cups of the batch will be available at Sunkist Take A Stand lemonade stands throughout the city benefiting Tulsa's Little Light House.

So far, more than $10,000 has been raised.

The old record was a 611-gallon glass of orange juice whipped-up by the Florida Department of Citrus back in 1998.

FYI! This is a business Christians should want to do business with! They honor Sunday as the Lord's day, hire Christian young people to work for them, work carefully around schedules making school and church are priority, do great fundraisers for the school that are of little effort to parents, and more. If you EVER leave the window at the one here in my town and they don't say "our pleasure" or "my pleasure" when you say thanks, I'd be shocked. They even work on the character of the kids that work for them.
