Locally Owned and Operated
Chick-fil-A Cumberland is individually owned and operated by Brendan Riggs. An Iowa native, Riggs relocated to East Indianapolis and began his journey with Chick-fil-A in 2003. Inspired by the welcoming environment and the mentorship of his Operator, Riggs set his sights on becoming a Chick-fil-A Operator. After 14 years of learning the ins and outs of the Chick-fil-A business in a variety of leadership roles, Riggs’ dream became a reality in 2021 when he was selected to become the Operator of Chick-fil-A Noblesville at SR37. Alongside his wife, Jordan, a former Chick-fil-A Team Member who will support human resources at the restaurant, and his three children, Riggs is thrilled to serve the Indianapolis community great-tasting food with Chick-fil-A’s signature hospitality.
