Locally Owned and Operated
Chick-fil-A Wheeler Landing is locally owned and operated by Josh Wynn, a South Carolina native. Wynn’s journey with Chick-fil-A started in 2007 as a Team Member, where he served guests and grew his leadership skills, before heading to Wofford College in Spartanburg, Sc. He continued working for Chick-fil-A during college, never imagining it would lead him to his future career. After graduation, he was hired at the Chick-fil-A Support Center where he worked in the training department. Wynn later moved into a role as a Grand Opening Supervisor for two years before becoming an Operator. Alongside his wife, April, and their two children, Wynn is excited to bring a new Chick-fil-A restaurant to the Lexington area.
“Every day, we have the opportunity to work alongside incredible people to serve our guests,” says Wynn. “I look forward to getting to know our team in Red Bank and striving to support them toward their goals in all areas of life.”
