The Inside Scoop on the Leadership Development Program with Chick-fil-A
If you haven’t heard already – Chick-fil-A has arrived in Canada! Double the good news if you’re in Toronto where the first internationally franchised restaurant is located (happy claps!). While Chick-fil-A is known for its original chicken sandwich, top talent in Canada will soon know them for their Leadership Development Program (LDP), specifically aimed at developing new grads’ business and leadership skills. We had the chance to speak with both a recruiter for Chick-fil-A’s LDP and a current program participant who shared their insights on the program, their experiences and some great tips on how to succeed in the recruitment process – Chick it out below.

Chick-fil-A: How it all began
t all started with a boneless breast of chicken. Hand-breaded, perfectly seasoned. Pressure-cooked. Served on a toasty, buttered bun with two pickles. Fifty years later, we make the Chick-fil-A® Chicken Sandwich the same way. We still believe in serving great-tasting food, made with the freshest ingredients and delivered with a warm smile.
