You won’t believe what this Chick-fil-A owner did for his employees

A Chick-fil-A restaurant owner is receiving high praise and publicity for continuing to pay his employees during the five months his restaurant was shut down for remodeling.

The Austin, Texas, eatery reopened its doors on Wednesday, and no doubt employees were ready to greet customers with a smile.

Jeff Glover, the restaurant’s owner, said he had to double the building’s size to accommodate Austin’s growing population.

“I thought to myself, ‘I don’t want my group to have to forgo their salaries,'” Glover told KVUE News.

But he didn’t stop there. As an extra incentive, he gave each of his 50 employees a $1 raise.

While many business owners are not in a financial position to be as generous as Glover, his kindness seems to be paying off in spades.

After first round fallout, who will moderate Fox News’ next debate?

Restaurant manager Norma Baynes told KVUE that she doesn’t think this kind of generosity happens very often 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.

Glover’s decision to pay his employees while on leave is proving to be good for business, too.

According to KVUE, the restaurant was expanded to 5,700 square feet, and reviews have been raving about great food and a happy staff.

Dozens of patrons camped out to be one of the first to enter the newly renovated facility, and it was worth it: the first 100 customers were offered free Chick-fil-A for a year.
