HAYSVILLE – Chick-fil-A will host a pop-up location in Haysville on Mondays during lunch this summer.
Derby Chick-fil-A owner Nate White was present at the Haysville Chamber meeting last Thursday to provide lunch. He also provided the chamber with information on the direction of his business and how it will impact Haysville.
“The thing I love most about Chick-fil-A is that I get to give back to the community,” said White.
White moved to Derby five years ago from North Carolina to operate his own store. With the business came the opportunity to have a mobile location that could bring Chick-fil-A food and service to surrounding communities.
White told the chamber his location would be hiring 25 to 30 people over the summer and would hire youth as young as 15. He said his goal is to promote the individual growth of his staff. Chick-fil-A offers employees who work 25 hours or more per week the chance to attend an online university free of charge to help advance their careers.
Chamber members commented on the efficiency of service at the Derby location and asked White and his brand growth director Paige Lamkins how they make it happen.
“We try something until it works,” said Lamkins. “We not only educate our team members, but our customers as well. We help them learn to place mobile orders so that we can better serve them.”
Chick-fil-A will have limited menu items available at the mobile location in Haysville. The pop-up location will be at 150 Stewart Avenue in front of the Learning Center beginning at 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m., times and availability are subject to change.
