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 Wichita, Nelson will be responsible for all day-to-day activities of the business, including employing approximately 125 full- and part-time Team Members, serving guests and cultivating relationships with local organizations and businesses.
Nelson joined Chick-fil-A in 2009, starting as a leader at a Chick-fil-A restaurant in Tulsa, Okla. With a goal to become a Chick-fil-A Operator one day, Nelson finished college with a bachelor’s degree in business administration. In 2012, Nelson joined Chick-fil-A’s Leadership Development Program, where he traveled across the country to support new restaurant openings. Following the successful completion of the program, he was selected as an Operator for a new location in Derby, Kan. in 2014. Nelson served as an Operator for two years before joining Chick-fil-A Central & Rock Road as an Operator in Wichita, Kan.
Nelson, his wife Natasha and their three daughters have resided in Wichita since 2014 and are active members of the community. Nelson most recently served on the board of the Andover YMCA and is currently an Honorary Commander for McConnell Air Force Base. He is also an Operator Coach for new Chick-fil-A Operators across the Midwest and serves as an Operator Consultant for Chick-fil-A Wichita State University. Nelson will now operate both Chick-fil-A Central & Rock Road and Chick-fil-A K96 & Greenwich Rd.
“I am thankful for the opportunity to open Chick-fil-A K96 & Greenwich Rd and add value to the growing Wichita community,” said Nelson. “It is my hope that our restaurant has a positive impact on every person we come into contact with, and that we can create a place where Team Members and guests feel welcomed and cared for.”
Caring for the Wichita 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 Wichita area to aid in the fight against hunger.
In addition, Chick-fil-A K96 & Greenwich Rd is recognizing 100 local heroes making an impact in the Wichita area by providing them with free Chick-fil-A meals for a year.
Nelson’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.

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.
