A new Chick-fil-A restaurant began serving the Brookhaven community on Thursday, April 13. Chick-fil-A, Inc. has selected Jerry Goebeler as the independent franchised Owner/Operator of Chick-fil-A Brookhaven.
Located at 4046 Peachtree Road, near the intersection of Brookhaven Drive NE and Peachtree Street NE, Chick-fil-A Brookhaven will be open for dine-in and carry-out from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Guests of Chick-fil-A Brookhaven can place an order for pickup, dine-in or delivery on the Chick-fil-A App or online. When joining the Chick-fil-A One tiered membership program, Chick-fil-A One members receive points on every qualifying purchase, which can be used to redeem available rewards.
The Brookhaven restaurant joins more than 183 other Chick-fil-A restaurants serving the wider Atlanta market.
In Brookhaven, Goebeler is responsible for all day-to-day activities of the business, including employing approximately 75 full- and part-time Team Members, serving guests and cultivating relationships with local organizations and businesses in addition to operating his other location, Chick-fil-A Chastain Square.
Having lived in the Brookhaven area for more than 20 years, Goebeler is thrilled to be opening a restaurant in the place he calls home. He has an extensive history with Chick-fil-A, spanning over almost three decades, that began with him starting as a Team Member in 1996 in Athens, Ga., during his senior year at the University of Georgia. After getting to know the local Operator he worked with, Goebeler decided to pursue a career with Chick-fil-A as it allowed him the opportunity to lead and pour into other young leaders. In 2001, he became the Operator of Chick-fil-A Chastain Square, which he will continue to operate along with Chick-fil-A Brookhaven. Now opening his second location, with the support of his wife Debbie and their three daughters, Goebeler is excited about the opportunity to make a greater impact in the community.
“I am excited to open a restaurant in my community and to show care for our customers who live, work and commute in the area,” said Goebeler in a statement. “My goal as an Operator of two Chick-fil-A restaurants is for every guest to receive quality service, and Chick-fil-A Brookhaven provides another opportunity to create a positive influence with all who come in contact with our restaurants.”
In celebration of the opening, Chick-fil-A, Inc. will donate $25,000 to Feeding America in honor of the new restaurant. These funds will be distributed to partners in the greater Atlanta area to aid in the fight against hunger.
In addition, Chick-fil-A Brookhaven is recognizing 100 local heroes making an impact in the Brookhaven area by providing them with free Chick-fil-A meals for a year.
Goebeler’s restaurant will plan to participate in Chick-fil-A Shared Table, an initiative that redirects surplus food from the restaurant to local soup kitchens, shelters, food banks and nonprofits in need. To date, more than 18 million meals have been served nationwide from Chick-fil-A Shared Table donations.
Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwiches are made with a real, whole, boneless breast of chicken with no added fillers, the breaded chicken is pressure cooked in fully-refined peanut oil. Chick-fil-A was one of the first in the industry to eliminate chicken raised with antibiotics to ensure guests have an option for high-quality food on the go.
To complement the chicken, fresh produce is delivered to Chick-fil-A restaurants up to six times a week for the best quality and flavor. The fresh ingredients are raised and grown by farmers who share the company’s elevated quality and safety standards, so guests feel good about their meal.
