Chick-Fil-A Owner Surprises Employees

A Chick-fil-A owner shocked his employees in the best way after shutting down for renovations

A Chick-fil-A owner recently had to shut down his Austin, Texas, restaurant for five months for renovations.

Instead of temporarily laying off his 50 workers, Jeff Glover shocked his staff by continuing to pay them during the entire five months the restaurant would be closed, ABC affiliate KVUE reports.

Glover even gave them a $1-per-hour raise for sticking with him.

Starting pay at Glover’s Chick-fil-A is $11 an hour and he pays full-time workers roughly $3,600 a month before taxes, according to KVUE.

“It would be a real financial crisis for the 50 families represented by the workers here to have to go five months without a job,” Glover told the station.

At least one employee wasn’t surprised by the gesture.

“I wasn’t expecting less than that — he is always taking care of us,”

Chick-fil-A dominates fast food. The fried-chicken chain generates more revenue per restaurant than any other fast-food chain in the US.

Chick-fil-A is best known for its crispy fried chicken, waffle fries, and milkshakes. But much of the company’s success can also be attributed to its superior customer service — which is a rare quality in an industry that’s notorious for its low wages.

At Glover’s Chick-fil-A in Austin, customers rave about the service.

  1. Wow! What an amazing leader:) So many companies focus on customer satisfaction and they fail to realize it starts with keeping your employees happy. If your employees enjoy their position, it will reflect in their work and customers will return for more.
