A Plainfield, Indiana Chick-fil-A owner plans to keep his employees busy even while the store is being remodeled this fall — by paying them to do community service.
The restaurant will be closed for the remodel from the end of September through sometime in November, but its 100 employees will be “deployed throughout the area, serving with non-profit organizations including schools, parks and recreation, and Active Grace, a center that helps the homeless transition back to work,” Fox 59 reports.
To owner Chris Spires, it’s just a way to give back to a community that has given so much to him.
“For the past 14 years, I have served the Plainfield community side by side with some amazing Team Members,” Spires told Fox 59. “The support of our amazing community is the reason we are able to expand and renovate our restaurant. We are thrilled to spend some time while we are closed supporting organizations that make Plainfield and the surrounding areas such a wonderful place to live and do business.” More

I just love Chick-Fil-A. What a fantastic company, run by great people. You will never hear about Starbucks doing this same kind of thing.
Fantastic! This is the kind of employer I would love to work for.

So Starbucks shuts down for “diversity” training while #ChicFilA pays it’s workers to do volunteer work in their communities while the franchises are being remodeled. THAT is how you do it!! Virtue signaling vs real virtue!
