Locally Owned and Operated
Chick-fil-A Crocker Park is locally owned and operated by Damian Grana. Grana’s journey with Chick-fil-A started 25 years ago when a friend who worked at Chick-fil-A encouraged him to apply. Grana received a job as a Team Member and seven years later became an Operator. In his free time, Grana enjoys spending time with his wife and daughters, reading, listening to music and searching for antiques. He is excited to serve the community his family has called home for the past 10 years.
“When I began my journey as a Team Member, I experienced firsthand the positive impact our restaurant can provide,” said Grana. “I look forward to continuing that impact through partnerships with local organizations and non-profits that give back to our Westlake community.”
