Locally Owned and Operated

Chick-fil-A Rand Village is locally owned and operated by Charles McClure.

He went on to become an Operator of his first Chick-fil-A restaurant in 2016, championing the Chick-fil-A brand along the way.

Alongside his wife Rose and their four children, McClure is excited to bring a new Chick-fil-A restaurant to the Garner community and looks forward to mentoring his Team Members. “I want the team to feel truly cared for,” said McClure, “I want to truly be the difference-maker in their lives.”
