SPRINGDALE, Ark. --Religion's at work in some Arkansas companies -- or at least it's in the workplace.
For example, customers of a Popeye's franchise that opened in Springdale last month get a receipt with a short message printed on the bottom -- ``Jesus is the answer.'' The franchisee of the store, minister Brian Smith, also decided to close it on Sundays.
The company is among a growing group of businesses where religion is playing a more prominent role.
Hobby Lobby retail stores and national fast-food chain Chick-fil-A (chik-fil-ay) also close on Sundays to let their employees worship.
The Allergy Care Center in Fayetteville plays Christian music and displays Christian magazines for waiting patients to read.
