When joining the Chick-fil-A One® tiered membership program, guests receive points on every qualifying purchase which can be used to redeem available rewards.

The Chick-fil-A Crosby restaurant joins more than 53 other Chick-fil-A restaurants serving the wider Houston market.

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

In Crosby, Pogue will be responsible for all day-to-day activities of the business, including employing approximately 135 full- and part-time Team Members, serving guests and cultivating relationships with local organizations and businesses.

Pogue began his career at Chick-fil-A at just 16 years old as a Team Member for Chick-fil-A Alico Road in 2010. Over the next decade, Pogue worked his way up in the business, later serving as an Interim Manager and Grand Opening Supervisor assisting with restaurant openings in 16 different states and Canada. Pogue is excited to open Chick-fil-A Crosby’s doors alongside his wife Kalei, whom he met at Chick-fil-A, as well as his brother, sister and brother-in-law who will also have roles at the restaurant.

“Chick-fil-A has been a part of my family for many years, and I am thrilled to open Crosby’s first location,” said Pogue. “I look forward to working with my Team Members and helping them pursue the many growth opportunities Chick-fil-A has to offer. My mission is to create a place that feels like home where everyone can belong.”

Caring for the Crosby 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 Houston area to aid in the fight against hunger.

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

Pogue’s restaurant will be participating in the Chick-fil-A Shared Table™ Program, an initiative that redirects surplus food from the restaurant to local soup kitchens, shelters, food banks and nonprofits in need.

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.
