Chick-fil-A owner paid employees' salaries during remodeling

Brandon Jones, KVUE 6:39 a.m. CDT August 13, 2015


AUSTIN -- Northwest Austin residents can finally get their Chick-fil-A fix again; the West Braker Lane and U.S. 183 location reopened Wednesday after a five-month remodel.

The franchise owner said it needed to grow with Austin's population -- the new building is double the size of the original and now has a third drive-thru lane.

Jeff Glover, who has operated the restaurant for 15 years, continued to pay his 50 employees during the remodel.

"I thought to myself, 'I don't want my group to have to forgo their salaries,'" he said. As an extra incentive, Glover gave all of his employees a $1 per hour raise.

Norma Baynes, one of the managers at the restaurant, said this type of generosity usually doesn't happen in today's business climate.

"I've been here for over a decade and I can't put into words how much this means," she said.

The workers were required to do some online testing while the store was closed, and Glover is expected to hire additional workers. The Braker Lane Chick-fil-A is the largest in the Austin area at 5,700 square feet.

I love Chick-fil-A. Their food is awesome.

The ownership is very Christian so they are always closed on Sundays.

This is the way it should be done...At the DISCRETION of the owner and NOT through government force...

Good for that dude.

I love how no matter how hard the Democratic party tries to demonize Chik fil A they not only overcome it but end up better off than before.

Hey, whatever happened to that uber-liberal jackass who raised the yearly salary of all his employees to a gazillion dollars? How'd that work out for him? Did his hawt girlfriend leave him for a Chik fil A manager yet?
