Most businesses operate in leased buildings, with leases typically assigning responsibility for maintenance of the grounds and the exterior of the building to the owner of the building rather than to the business that leases the space. Thus, it's the owners of the building, and not the business therein, who are making the decision to do the work that you describe on Sundays.

investors are buying the real estate upon which the Chick-fil-A restaurant sits. These ground-leased properties provide additional investment security given the nature of the real estate investment made by Chick-fil-A's real estate team, which generally pays for the design, construction, and equipment for all new stores.

Chick-fil-A locations tend to be subject to ground leases, meaning the investor owns the ground while Chick-fil-A is responsible for building and the improvements (buildings).
