58 minutes

Bart Milligan is the operator of two Chick-fil-A restaurants in the Tulsa, Oklahoma area. He holds a degree in accounting from Georgia State University and spent the early part of his career at Chick-fil-A’s corporate office located in Atlanta, Ga.

In this episode, Bart speaks about the growth of the Chick-fil-A brand spanning his 20-year career with the restaurant chain as well as the motivation behind becoming a restaurant operator.  Milligan shares the biggest lesson he took away was becoming a faithful steward of the business.

Additionally, he discusses the decisions made by the Cathy family to turn Chick-fil-A into a powerhouse brand, one of the most powerful being their non-negotiable choice to stay closed on Sundays with no exceptions.
