Locally Owned and Operated
Chick-fil-A US 17 at Hwy 22 is locally owned and operated by Jeff Cash.

While working as a restaurant Team Member, Cash was inspired by Chick-fil-A’s welcoming atmosphere and career growth opportunities. After learning the ins and outs of the business under the mentorship of the restaurant’s Operator, Cash moved to Louisville, Ky., to become an Interim Manager. As a result of his hard work and dedication, Cash was selected to return home to North Carolina and become the Operator of Chick-fil-A Greenville Mall in 2011. After serving the Greenville community for four years, he was thrilled to move to Myrtle Beach to become the Owner/Operator of Chick-fil-A North Myrtle Beach. Alongside his wife, Brooke, and their four children, Cash looks forward to serving the Myrtle Beach community as the Operator of both Chick-fil-A US 17 at Hwy 22 and Chick-fil-A North Myrtle Beach.
