Locally Owned and Operated
Chick-fil-A Oshkosh is locally owned and operated by Ty Dillon. Ty was introduced to Chick-fil-A and tasted the famous original Chick-fil-A® Chicken Sandwich for the first time when he was a student at Dallas Baptist University in Dallas, Texas. Inspired by the Chick-fil-A’s great-tasting food and genuine hospitality, Ty grew an appreciation for the brand.
In 2011, Ty graduated college with a Bachelor of Science and master’s degree in Accounting. Upon graduating, he accepted a position at Crowe Horwath LLP accounting firm in his hometown of Indianapolis, Ind. After two years at the firm, Ty and his wife moved back to the Lone Star State to begin his Chick-fil-A journey. While applying for the franchisee selection process, Ty spent three years working at Chick-fil-A Schertz in Schertz, Texas, learning the ins and outs of the business. To continue developing his business and leadership skills, Ty and his family moved back to the Midwest, where he served as a Leader for two years at Chick-fil-A Pyramids in Indianapolis, Ind. After five years of hard work and determination, Ty was selected to become the Operator of his first Restaurant in 2019 at Chick-fil-A Dayton Mall in Dayton, Ohio. Shortly after a year, Ty was given the opportunity to relocate to Wisconsin in order to become the Operator of Chick-fil-A Oshkosh.
Ty and his wife have two children and value spending quality time with their family. He is an outdoor enthusiast and loves spending time running, hunting, hiking and camping. He has a passion for developing others and is eager for the opportunity to build relationships in the local community
“My family and I are excited to join the Oshkosh community.
