Locally Owned and Operated
Chick-fil-A Dickson City is locally owned and operated by Keith Kelly. A native of New York, Kelly attended the New York Institute of Technology and kickstarted a 20-year career working in financial services after graduation. In 2017, Kelly was seeking a more fulfilling job opportunity and began his journey with Chick-fil-A working as a part-time restaurant Team Member in New York. Using vacation time from his full-time job, Kelly traveled the country learning the ins and outs of the career opportunities at Chick-fil-A. Three years later, Kelly transitioned into a full-time role as the Executive Director at Chick-fil-A Smithtown. As a result of his hard work and dedication, Kelly was selected as the Operator of Chick-fil-A Dickson City this year. Alongside his wife and four children, Kelly is thrilled to call Dickson City his new home, and he looks forward to developing relationships in the community.
"As the Operator of Chick-fil-A Dickson City, I am humbled by the opportunity to show care and generosity to everyone who dines with us,” said Kelly. “With the opening of this restaurant, I am excited to make a positive impact in the Dickson City community by serving remarkable food with genuine hospitality.”
