Locally Owned and Operated 
Chick-fil-A LaPlace is locally owned and operated by Jasmine Spraggins, who has worked at Chick-fil-A since she was 17 years old. She began her career in 2011 as a Team Member at Chick-fil-A Newton Plaza in Georgia and worked her way up to become the restaurant’s Director of Operations. After receiving a Team Member scholarship in 2014 during her senior year at Agnes Scott College, Spraggins began Chick-fil-A’s Leadership Development Program, where she supported a total of 13 restaurant grand openings across the country. With eight years of Chick-fil-A experience under her belt, Spraggins was selected as the Operator for Chick-fil-A Alexandria Mall in Louisiana. A year later, Spraggins expressed interest in wanting to move closer to her family and was selected as the Operator for Chick-fil-A LaPlace. Spraggins is looking forward to relocating closer to home along with her three-year-old son Liam.  

“I am thrilled to be opening a restaurant so close to my family,” said Spraggins. “I cannot wait to invest in my team and introduce Chick-fil-A to the LaPlace community.”
