Working at a Chick-fil-A restaurant

Most Chick-fil-A restaurant businesses are locally owned and operated by independent, franchised Operators. They recruit, hire, train and manage their own employees, handle all matters regarding Team Member employment at their restaurants, and set their own employment policies and procedures. Operators strive to offer competitive pay and benefits to their Team Members, and each restaurant culture is unique and personalized to that Operator.

Chick-fil-A Operators offer more than a job

They are in the chicken business and also the people business

Chick-fil-A Operators care about their employees. Each restaurant culture is unique to the Operator and local community, and Operators are committed to creating a positive environment where all Team Members are valued and respected.

You're guaranteed time off. (We're closed on Sundays.)

No matter which restaurant you apply to work for, Chick-fil-A restaurants remain closed on Sundays to allow our restaurant Operators and their Team Members to enjoy a day of rest and be with their families and loved ones.

We offer college scholarship opportunities and tuition discounts

Chick-fil-A, Inc. recognizes and appreciates the tremendous talent and capabilities of Team Members working at their local Chick-fil-A restaurants.  To help invest in their futures, Chick-fil-A restaurant Team Members can apply for college scholarships, as well as receive tuition discounts at dozens of universities across the U.S.

Make a difference in your community

Many local Operators find ways to give back to their communities, and you can be a part of that.  From donating food through the Shared Table program to supporting local Junior Achievement centers to hosting community events, you have the opportunity to serve and make an impact beyond the walls of the restaurant 


The secret sauce: Team Members who care

Chick-fil-A Team Members care about the work they’re doing and find it to be meaningful beyond just serving a great Chicken Sandwich. Explore some of the many reasons why they think it’s awesome to work at Chick-fil-A (besides the Chicken Sandwich, of course!).

I love Chick-fil-A because they are in the people business, not just the food business. In addition to receiving a True Inspiration Scholarship, I have been given incredible opportunities to grow as a leader at my local Chick-fil-A restaurant. I’ve learned the importance of making every day as much about the people as it is the food.

Going the extra mile

After a long shift on a rainy day, Robert Wilkins was finally headed home from his job at the Lake Boone Trail Chick-fil-A in Raleigh, North Carolina. He made it to the parking lot when he saw a woman next to her car, stranded with a flat tire and getting soaked. He could have walked right past her, gotten into his dry car and headed home. But Wilkins doesn’t operate that way.

More than a name tag
