The Eatontown restaurant joins 50 other Chick-fil-A restaurants serving the state of New Jersey.

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 Eatontown, Stubbs will be responsible for all day-to-day activities of the business, including employing approximately 150 full- and part-time Team Members, serving guests and cultivating relationships with local organizations and businesses.

Cassie Stubbs is the epitome of a loyal Chick-fil-A employee. After starting her Chick-fil-A career as a Team Member in 2007, she entered the Leadership Development Program, and eventually became the Operator of Monmouth Mall in 2019. Her family’s Chick-fil-A roots run deep; Stubbs’ aunt and uncle, Christine and Ron Trout, are also Operators, and her mother, Colleen, and sister, Ali, are Team Members at other Chick-fil-A restaurants.

Stubbs has a Master of Arts in Integrated Marketing Communications from St. Bonaventure University, as well as a Master of Science in Industrial/Organizational Psychology from Capella University. She was named Entrepreneur of the Year by Driven Women Jersey Shore.

“I am thrilled to meet all of my new Team Members,” said Stubbs. “Together, we will make the Eatontown community an even better place to live.”

Caring for the Eatontown 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 New York/New Jersey area to aid in the fight against hunger.

Chick-fil-A Eatontown is also recognizing 100 local heroes making an impact in the Eatontown community 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.
