A Chick-fil-A restaurant in Plainfield, Indiana is about to undergo a massive remodel, but despite being closed for business, they still plan to keep their employees occupied and earning a paycheck, thus proving that they are a true class act.
Employees will receive a paycheck for showing up to do community service projects, working alongside non-profit organizations to help make their town a better place. This is pure awesome.
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.Advertisement - story continues below
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.”
Rather than just laying people off, the owners of this restaurant are going out of their way to serve their employees by ensuring they still have pay and also improving their local community.
This is why Chick-fil-A is one of the top restaurants in the world now. The folks behind the scenes for the company are Christians who obviously want to do more than just claim Jesus with words. They want to truly be His hands and feet in the world.
Praise God for Chick-fil-A!
Oh, and, uh, eat more chicken!
