Locally Owned and Operated
Chick-fil-A Corinth is locally owned and operated by David Rogers. Impressed by both the freshy-prepared food and genuine hospitality, Rogers and his family frequently visited Chick-fil-A restaurants growing up. After hearing about his younger brother’s positive experience working at a restaurant and the growth opportunities the company offered, Rogers and his twin brother, Jonathan, began their journeys with Chick-fil-A as Team Members in 2008. As Rogers became more familiar with Chick-fil-A, he realized the franchise ownership opportunity could provide him with an even larger platform for having a positive influence not only on his Team Members, but also the community. His twin brother was selected as the Operator of Chick-fil-A Starkville in 2018 and Rogers is thrilled to join him in Mississippi as the Operator of Chick-fil-A Corinth. Alongside his wife, Elizabeth, and his two children, Rogers looks forward to developing his Team Members and serving the community with Chick-fil-A’s signature hospitality.
“I am humbled and excited by the opportunity to create a positive and welcoming dining experience through this new restaurant,” said Rogers. “I am passionate about developing caring leaders with a strong work ethic to be a bright light in our community.”
