Chick-Fil-A's hiring sign is out

The operators for the Albany Chick-Fil-A's restaurants are growing, and will be hiring about 100 more employees in the next year and a half. 

Thursday, K. J. Wari, the operator of the Albany Chick-Fil-A drive thru, took over as operator of the Albany Mall restaurant as well.

He is also  the consultant for the Chick-Fil-A Express inside the Albany State College student center.

And plans are underway to build a Chick-Fil-A in Lee County at Forrester Parkway in the next year and a half.

While many businesses, especially restaurants, are closing in tough economic times, the Albany Chick-Fil-A's are growing and hiring.

"We've refused to participate in that. We just made up our mind a couple of years ago when it was not looking so good, that we were just going to be very aggressive in contracting anything that may come, and it's worked,"said Anna Wari, Albany Human Resources Director.

Currently, the Albany Chick-Fil-A's have 85 full and part time employees, and will be hiring about a dozen more in the near future. Within the next year and a half they expect to hire 100 more.

If you would like to apply for one, pick up an application at the Chick-Fil-A drive thru on Dawson Road between 3PM and 5 PM.
