The saying goes, “You always want what you can’t have.” This is so very true for Chick-fil-A. We always crave it on Sundays, the one day they are closed. However, it’s a great thing that they are closed on Sundays since it gives people like Jared Johnson time with his family.
Jared Johnson is the owner of the St. Joseph Chick-fil-A; but just how does one become the owner of a Chick-fil-A franchise? Johnson had just moved back to Texas from Nashville and began working as a team member, as a married 31 year old with two kids. He had dreams of owning his own franchise eventually. He gradually moved up and began working in corporate. Pretty quickly Johnson was asked to take over the St. Joseph store. He accepted, but quite possibly could be regretting it after the winter we have had!
There aren’t very many times that you would have a bad experience at Chick-fil-A. The corporate offices have tried to create an environment that is all about going the extra mile for their customers. This all starts with hiring and keeping great individuals with a solid work ethic.
When it comes to going the extra mile it includes clearing trays for customers or even participating in Mom’s Valet. Mom’s Valet is a program that allows for ordering and paying in the drive-thru and getting a table set up and ready for the family while they are parking. It provides some relief for busy moms with kiddos in the back seat!
Jared strives to get food in people’s mouths and let it do the talking for the quality of their product. And, boy does it! Just thinking about Chick-fil-A can get the craving started – thankfully, it’s Monday and you have all week to pop in, say hi to Jared and his team, and snag yourself a yummy chicken sandwich and some waffle fries.
Susan J. Campbell wanted to give a shout-out to Jared for his dedication to Chick-fil-A and his commitment to providing the best experience possible. Be sure to stop by the St. Joseph Chick-fil-A Facebook page for local specials and funny ads!
