Locally Owned and Operated
As full-time, hands-on leaders in their restaurants and communities, Chick-fil-A Owner/Operators are proud members of the communities in which they serve.

In Denison, Medders will be responsible for all day-to-day activities of the business, including employing approximately 80 full- and part-time Team Members, serving guests and cultivating relationships with local organizations and businesses.

Having spent his entire life in the Texoma region, Medders is excited to open another Chick-fil-A location in the community he calls home. Medders attended Dallas Baptist University and after graduation, he spent 14 years working for Texas Instruments (TI), with five of those years at TI’s Sherman plant. Ready for a new adventure, Medders joined Chick-fil-A as an Operator in 2003 and opened Chick-fil-A Sherman in his hometown later that year, which he will continue to operate in addition to Chick-fil-A Denison. Alongside his wife Rhonda, who serves as his Unit Marketing Director, and their three children, Medders is thrilled to open Chick-fil-A Denison’s doors to serve the community.

“I look forward to welcoming our guests in Denison and continuing to provide Chick-fil-A’s signature hospitality to the community I know and love,” said Medders. “It has been such a great experience operating a location in my hometown, and I am overjoyed to open another restaurant in the surrounding community.”

Caring for the Denison Community
In honor of the opening, Chick-fil-A, Inc. will donate $25,000 to Feeding America on behalf of the new restaurant. These funds will be distributed to partners in the greater Dallas/Fort Worth area to aid in the fight against hunger.

In addition, Chick-fil-A Denison is recognizing 100 local heroes making an impact in the Denison area by providing them with free Chick-fil-A meals for a year.

Team Member Investment
Chick-fil-A Operators are committed to hiring, developing and retaining top talent and providing a positive work environment for people of all ages and backgrounds. Team Members have opportunities for flexible work hours and leadership growth, competitive pay and benefits, hands-on training and mentoring and the chance to apply for scholarships to support their continuing education.

Delicious Food; Outstanding Customer Service
Chick-fil-A is known for serving customers great-tasting food made with high-quality ingredients, including the original Chick-fil-A® Chicken Sandwich. Made with a real, whole, boneless breast of chicken with no added fillers, the breaded chicken is pressure cooked in fully-refined peanut oil. Chick-fil-A was one of the first in the industry to eliminate chicken raised with antibiotics to ensure guests have an option for high-quality food on the go.

To complement the great-tasting chicken, fresh produce is delivered to Chick-fil-A restaurants up to six times a week for the best quality and flavor. The fresh ingredients are raised and grown by farmers who share the company's elevated quality and safety standards, so guests feel good about their meal.
