John spent nearly 20 years in pharmaceutical sales before deciding that the time had come for a change. He had a passion for investing in people’s lives, so when the opportunity came along to pursue a new career with Chick-fil-A, he knew it was the perfect fit.
And when the doors opened to Chick-fil-A Belleview Shores in October 2010, John knew he was finally home.
Today he loves leading his team and building meaningful working relationships with each person.
“Everybody has a story. And I have a chance to be a part of their lives. At the end of the day, hopefully they can each say that I had at least a little difference in their lives.”
In This Together
We love the community around us here at Chick-fil-A Belleview Shores. And we know we couldn’t do what we do every day without all of our fellow neighborhood businesses. So that’s why it’s important to support them, too.
Through our Business of the Week initiative, we have the privilege of serving breakfast to a company’s employees every day for a week. Because we know how difficult it can be to get work done on an empty stomach!
Each year, Chick-fil-A Inc. awards funding to organizations around the country that are investing into their communities. So we just knew we needed to tell them about our friends at The Big Idea Project — an educational program led by a teacher at Columbine High School that is dedicated to developing generous community leaders. And boy, were we excited to hear they received a check for $75,000!
We’re also passionate about supporting our veterans through organizations like Paws for Purple Hearts, a training program for service dogs for service men and women who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder.
Equipping Future Leaders
There’s nothing quite like getting to come to work every day with your best friends — at least we like to think so. At Chick-fil-A Belleview Shores, our team members know that we’re all in this together, and that we’re always going to support and encourage one another.
We’re big believers in investing in our team members’ futures. That’s why we love awarding scholarships to team members each year so they can step confidently into the next chapter of their lives.
Whether it’s someone’s first job and a step in the direction of a new career, there’s always room to grow and learn. From serving a delicious meal to a family to learning how to lead a team, our team members have the opportunity every day to discover talents and passions that they had never known before. And we think that’s pretty exciting.
