The Chick-fil-A Plymouth restaurant joins more than 20 other Chick-fil-A restaurants serving the wider Minneapolis market.
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 Plymouth, Peterson will be responsible for all day-to-day activities of the business, including employing approximately 115 full- and part-time Team Members, serving guests and cultivating relationships with local organizations and businesses.
Born and raised in Minnesota, just northeast of Plymouth, Peterson’s first taste of Chick-fil-A was just weeks into working at a nearby restaurant location. Passionate about the restaurant’s lively atmosphere and the ability to serve people in a tangible way, Peterson set his sights on becoming a Chick-fil-A Operator. After starting as a Team Member in 2016, Peterson transitioned to the general manager role through the mentorship of his fellow employees at the restaurant. Soon after, he was selected for the Leadership Development Program. After 24 months on the road supporting new restaurant openings, Peterson’s dream became a reality when he was selected as the Operator of Chick-fil-A Plymouth. Peterson and his wife Whitney are thrilled to serve the community they grew up in with great-tasting food and Chick-fil-A’s signature hospitality.
“I am humbled to have had the opportunity to transition from Team Member to the Leadership Development Program and now to becoming an Operator,” said Peterson. “My goal as an Operator is to develop caring leaders by investing in our Team Members and creating a place where they can learn and grow.”
Caring for the Plymouth 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 Minneapolis area to aid in the fight against hunger.
In addition, Chick-fil-A Plymouth is recognizing 100 local heroes making an impact in the Plymouth area by providing them with free Chick-fil-A meals for a year.
Peterson’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.
