Leadership Development

     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.”
