ECBA December Business Luncheon
Tuesday, Dec 15th, 2020, 11:00am - 1:00pm

Speaker David Salyers Presents: "Growing a small startup into a multibillion-dollar corporation"

David Salyers was one of the original two marketing executives at Chick-fil-A. He went on to spend 37 years in the Chick-fil-A Marketing Department, most recently as a Vice President, before his retirement.

Having worked at Chick-fil-A his entire career, he saw the principles of servant leadership and creating remarkable customer experiences play out in the growth of more than 2,300 Chick-fil-A restaurants around the country. 

Today, this multibillion-dollar company is recognized as one of America’s most successful, powerful and beloved brands. 

David Salyers joined Chick-fil-A where there were only 20 employees and HQ was in an airplane hangar.

During this interview David will talk about the strategies and challenges encountered during the process of growing a single chicken sandwich fast-food restaurant into a multibillion-dollar company.

Topics will include the role company values played in all their decision making, opportunities they chose to pass on as well as opportunities taken. 

No matter what growth plans you have for your company, you will leave this meeting having gained useful ideas to help drive your success.
