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.
At Chick-fil-A Greenfield, Cody Walburn will be responsible for all day-to-day activities of the business, including employing approximately 120 full- and part-time Team Members, serving guests and cultivating relationships with local organizations and businesses.
Walburn began his Chick-fil-A journey in 2017 after meeting a Chick-fil-A Operator at church in Atlanta. It was through this mentorship that Walburn discovered that being an Operator could provide him a platform to make a positive influence on his Team Members and the overall community. After graduating from Purdue University, Walburn began working for Chick-fil-A, learning the ropes of the business. Since 2020, he has been an Operator of Chick-fil-A College Mall and also Chick-fil-A Castleton Square. An Indiana native, Cody Walburn and his wife of more than six years, Victoria, have a two-year old daughter and are expecting another child this fall. Walburn, alongside his family, is thrilled to serve the Greenfield community great tasting food with Chick-fil-A’s signature hospitality.
“I am humbled by this opportunity to grow alongside our team and have a meaningful influence in the Greenfield community,” said Walburn. “Our goal is to be the most caring business in Greenfield and to create a positive experience for both my Team Members and our guests.”
Caring for the Greenfield 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 Indianapolis area to aid in the fight against hunger.
In addition, Chick-fil-A Greenfield is recognizing 100 local heroes making an impact in the Greenfield area by providing them with free Chick-fil-A meals for a year.
Walburn’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.
