Ochsner has been with the chain for eight years and previously owned a Chick-fil-A location in Fort Wayne, Indiana for three-and-a-half years.

Ochsner said she’s looking to hire 100 employees for the location. Those interested may apply online.

The chain’s two other West Michigan locations are at 700 54th St. SW in Wyoming and 1545 Edgeknoll Dr. SE in Gaines Township.


Atlanta-based Chick-fil-A was founded in 1967.

The fast-food chain is known for its chicken sandwiches, nuggets, strips and wraps.

It has more than 2,200 locations in 46 states and Washington, D.C.
