Chick-fil-A restaurant Operators are passionate about providing a welcoming, safe and inclusive environment for the more than 140,000 Team Members who work at Chick-fil-A restaurants across the country in the communities we serve. Our restaurant Operators are independent business owners who offer various opportunities for their employees to grow and develop – including, but not limited to, leadership development opportunities, work-life balance options, and competitive wages and benefits in their markets (often starting above minimum wage).
Chick-fil-A Operators have created a wide variety of opportunities for their Team Members’ professional development and career growth. In many cases, this has included the potential for entry-level Team Members to advance into leadership roles within a given Operator’s restaurant business. In addition, many Chick-fil-A Team Members have achieved long-term career growth within the Chick-fil-A system by going on to become restaurant franchise Operators themselves – in fact, more than half of newly selected Operators over the past few years have had Chick-fil-A experience. For some Team Members, working in a Chick-fil-A restaurant has provided a great opportunity to begin developing or enhancing employment skills and experience. Many have gone on to pursue professions outside of the Chick-fil-A system in a wide variety of careers, supported in part by the leadership skills and development opportunities they received working for a franchised Operator in a Chick-fil-A restaurant.
