Leadership expert John Maxwell has said that "Everything rises and falls on leadership." We believe this statement to be particularly true in our restaurant and have made developing leaders a major focus of what we are trying to accomplish every day. For team members that show great potential, we offer a challenging Leadership Development Program. In this program, we will facilitate your growth as a leader by giving you real responsibility over people, processes, and systems. You will develop and refine the interpersonal skills necessary to lead confidently and passionately in a way that inspires others to be their best. And we will challenge you on the development of your character, which will activate and empower your ability to lead at a high level. If you desire to polish your leadership skills while learning how to operate and grow an industry-leading business, then Chick-fil-A Alon Town Center is the right place for you.
David, Back of House Team Leader
David joined our team when he was 15 years old and has been a part of our team for more than seven years. Since his humble beginnings as a kitchen team member, David has now grown into one of our trustworthy leaders. He is here five days a week serving the freshest breakfast to start our guest’s mornings off right. “I’ve learned to really appreciate people in ways that I really never knew,” David said. “I now know what it feels like to be a part of something bigger than just a job; it’s like being a part of a family away from home.” David recently completed our leadership development program on his journey to becoming a Team Leader. In the program we promote our potential leaders to Team Leaders - In Training. They have the opportunity to learn first-hand what it’s like to problem solve, lead a shift, and influence others. “I’ve become more responsible,” David said. “I’ve learned a lot about how to run a kitchen and I feel confident that the knowledge I’ve received here would lead me to succeed elsewhere. I’ve matured a lot faster than most people my age simply by having the opportunity to learn how to lead others.”
