Emily joined Chick-fil-A part time as part of a school program that we partner with. It is designed for kids with special needs to help them grow with life skills. Emily started her career with us by only delivering meals to our guests. She was extremely shy and lacked confidence to complete basic tasks but has huge desire and a servant heart that shines bright! October will mark Emily’s four year anniversary with Chick-fil-A. In those four years, Emily has graduated from high school, learned how to put all the correct items into a bag for the guests, make shakes, prepare drinks, serve our guests at the drive-thru window, and is one of our top performing order takers in the drive thru. Emily loves a good contest and usually hands down wins them. There is no mountain too high for Emily. She embraces any challenge with a smile while pushing herself to be better every day. So many lessons have been learned from working alongside Emily. She continues to amaze and brighten our days.
