Locally Owned and Operated
Chick-fil-A Kirkwood Mall is locally owned and operated by Andrew Stubbs. Growing up, Stubbs has fond memories of dining at Chick-fil-A during cross-country travels for competitive tennis. It wasn’t until later when Stubbs read many of Chick-fil-A founder Truett Cathy’s books that he developed a desire to switch career paths from an executive pastor to senior director of Chick-fil-A Cherry Road in South Carolina. Now, Stubbs looks forward to leaning into his Master of Business Administration through his new role as Operator of Chick-fil-A Kirkwood Mall, positively impacting his Team Members, guests, and the community of Bismarck.
“Growing up in the Southeast, Chick-fil-A has always been one of my favorite restaurants, and I’m humbled to have this opportunity to create that same dining experience for others, while providing a great workplace for our Team Members,” said Stubbs. “My family and I have enjoyed getting to know the Bismarck community these past few months, and we can’t wait to provide the same kind of hospitality when they visit Chick-fil-A Kirkwood Mall.”
