Chik-Fil-A comes to Lincoln
Published: March 10, 2017
4th graders have been learning about entrepreneurship and business management through the Junior Achievement Program. They were able to gain a better understanding of this with a visit by Mark Dugger, owner of the East Peoria Chick-Fil-A restaurant. He was able to share Founder Truett Cathy's story of perseverance and passion in addition to his own incredible story of becoming the manager of the East Peoria store. Students asked poignant questions and learned a great deal about how businesses get started and operate. Mr. Dugger also surprised them with restaurant gift cards and a visit from the store's cow mascot!
