Chick-fil-A is hiring 120 employees in anticipation for the Nov. 17 grand opening of its new restaurant in Kalispell, the company announced.

Casey Meadows was named franchise owner of Montana’s first Chick-fil-A restaurant, which is located at 35 Treeline Rd. off U.S. 93 North. With the restaurant slated to open for business Nov. 17, hiring for approximately 120 full- and part-time team members has begun this week.

Interested candidates can visit the hiring trailer at the new restaurant where applications will be taken from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. For additional information on hiring, visit the restaurant’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ChickfilAKalispell/.

Meadows, a Georgia native, previously owned a Chick-fil-A franchise in Corona, Calif. Meadows got his start with Chick-fil-A at the age of 15 when he became a team member at a Chick-fil-A in Macon, Ga. Meadows was a recipient of the Chick-fil-A Leadership Scholarship that has grown to nearly $37.8 million being awarded to nearly 37,800 team members since 1973. In 2004, Meadows and his wife, Jan, moved to California to operate the Hidden Valley Parkway Chick-fil-A.

“We are overjoyed to make beautiful, metro Kalispell our new home,” said Meadows. “Jan and I are honored to have the opportunity to introduce and reconnect guests to Chick-fil-A’s great food, service and hospitality. We can’t wait to meet and serve this wonderful community.”

Chick-fil-A just announced this month that it will more than double its commitment to restaurant team members with the Remarkable Futures initiative– providing $4.9 million in annual scholarships starting in 2017. Scholarships will be available in three categories, ranging from $2,500 to $25,000, and will be based on leadership, community involvement and academic achievement. Additional details can be found at www.chick-fil-a.com/scholarships.

Atlanta-based Chick-fil-A, Inc. is a family owned and privately held restaurant company founded in 1964 by S. Truett Cathy. There are more than 2,075 restaurants in 43 states and Washington, D.C.
