Chick-fil-A already has over 2,800 restaurants across North America, with locations across the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada. To achieve its goals overseas, Chick-fil-A announced in Thursday’s press release that it intends to invest over $100 million into its international ventures over the next decade. Each new restaurant is expected to create roughly 80 to 120 new jobs.
“From our earliest days, we’ve worked to positively influence the places we call home and this will be the same for our stores in the UK,” Joanna Symonds, head of UK operations, said in a press release. “We encourage our Operators to partner with organisations which support and positively impact their local communities, delivering great food and wider benefits to those around them.”
Each time a Chick-fil-A restaurant opens, the company will donate $25,000 to a local non-profit organization dedicated to “reducing incidences of hunger in communities.”
