Owner/ Operator Chick-Fil-A
Started working at Chick-fil-A at the age of 16 and quickly realized that this was more than a job, but a purposed filled calling. He attended Clemson University and get a BS in economics. After graduating, he was immediately accepted into the Franchisee Training program and became an Operator in Greensboro, North Carolina. He then had the opportunity to be part of the "pioneering" movement of taking Chick-fil-A to California! His Chick-fil-A restaurant opened in March of 2004. After 3 incredible years in California (and twin boys being born!), Chris returned to Georgia and served for 2 years at the Chick-fil-A Support Center on the Operator Selection Team (went from franchisee to franchisee selection team). Pretty quickly he realized the entrepreneurial spirit could not be tamed and he became the Operator at Chick-fil-A East Lake in September of 2008. He is married to a beautiful Clemson Tiger, Martha, for over 16 years and they have three beautiful children Parker, Peyton, and Anna Claire. If he is not selling chicken, he is coaching soccer or baseball, shuttling a little girl to gymnastics, possibly playing golf or attending any Clemson sporting event!
