ATLANTA — Chick-fil-A, Inc. will invest $24 million in college scholarships for 12,699 restaurant team members in Canada and the U.S. The scholarships can be applied to any area of study at any accredited institution. There’s also no requirement of hours worked or length of service to qualify.
The brand’s retail sales of its signature bottled sauces in the U.S. has also helped support this program, with 100-per-cent of the proceeds going to the Remarkable Futures Scholarships initiative. Since the bottled sauce launched in 2020, retail sales have contributed more than $6.4 million to the program. This year, sales enabled 2, 200 additional scholarships to be awarded.
“The Chick-fil-A scholarship initiative has been instrumental in our investment in the growth and success of restaurant team members,” says Tim Tassopoulos, president of Chick-fil-A, Inc. and a former Remarkable Futures Scholarship recipient. “Our inspiring recipients this year have overcome great obstacles and remain dedicated to pursuing academic and personal success. We recognize their enormous potential and hope to play a small part in furthering their education, providing them with more opportunities to help achieve their goals.”
