Launch Leadership Development Program Olney, MD

Launch Leadership Development Program

Full Time • Olney, MD

What is LAUNCH?

Launch is an innovative, leadership development program. The purpose of the DC Launch Program is to rapidly launch you into a successful career within a three year
time-frame. In the program you will have the opportunity to learn every facet of running an independent franchise business, with the goal of preparing you to pursue your own Chick-fil-A franchise or a position at the Chickfil-A Support Center. Of course, the program will also prepare you to pursue other career interests or equip you to step into another business as a high contributor. Prepare yourself, because this will likely be the biggest challenge you have taken on in your life. It won’t easy, but the rewards are tremendous.

Why should you LAUNCH?
Frankly, there are far more reasons TO launch than not. As a part of this innovative leadership training ground, you will learn how to operate a small business right out of college. No spending your first two years out of college in some entry level position that you would be lucky to learn anything from . Instead, you will receive personalized, 1:1 development with the Chick-fil-A franchise owner and then be given the reigns over significant parts of the business such as marketing, HR, finance, or training. If Chick-fil-A is a dream company of yours, you will gain unparalleled experience by going through certified Chick-fil-A courses, working Chick-fil-A Grand Openings, and learning the restaurant environment. As a part of one of the nation’s top brands, you will be able to
connect to Chick-fil-A’s greater purpose and find value and meaning each day on the job.

The Chick-fil-A Employment Difference

Chick-fil-A is known as much for its people as it is for its amazing food. This is because we create a culture in which people are cared for. At Chick-fil-A we have a calling that is higher than making money. Our calling is to positively impact the lives of everyone we come in contact with on a daily basis. And we don't just say this, we DO IT!  You've probably noticed if you have ever visited a Chick-fil-A restaurant. The other unique thing about Chick-fil-A is that every location is locally owned and operated. Chick-fil-A of Olney is locally owned and operated by Erik Amick, who has 10 years of experience as a Chick-fil-A franchisee and prior careers in Marketing and Ministry. You will see him in the restaurant and community almost daily and receive one-on-one personal development from Erik. Another big difference between this opportunity and your current job is that we are very intentional in helping leaders grow. You aren't left to just figure it out on your own. You will work with a team of professional leaders, most of whom have 4 year college degrees. Some of our leaders have found their career home at Chick-fil-A of Olney, while others are pursuing their own franchise through the development and guidance of Erik. Chick-fil-A opens over 100 restaurants per year and the majority of new franchisees come out of leadership from current Chick-fil-A restaurants. Maybe this is the beginning of your journey to own your own franchise! Or maybe this job will allow you to work in an area you are passionate about for this first time! Whatever your goal, we are glad you are considering applying to become part of our family. Last, and least important, did you know that Chick-fil-A has the highest average sales volume of any quick service or fast casual chain? We have been a healthy growing brand for 50(+) straight years. 

Compensation: $50,000
