Locally Owned and Operated
Chick-fil-A Annandale is locally owned and operated by Eric Brommer. Brommer started working at Chick-fil-A as a Team Member during college. Within his first week at the restaurant, he knew he wanted to own and operate his own Chick-fil-A restaurant. He looked up to Jeff Cash, the Operator at Chick-fil-A Greenville Mall, and wanted to impact people, the community and Team Members the same way Cash did. The two of them sat down and created a roadmap to help Brommer become an operator.
“When I joined Chick-fil-A at 22-years-old, I knew it would become my career,” said Brommer. “I’m incredibly grateful to have had Jeff as a mentor, and I’m looking forward to developing my Team Members and providing the same mentorship opportunities that I received.”
