Chick-fil-A Bumps Up Non-Food Offerings, Gets Into Entertainment Business

Chick-fil-A, known for its chicken sandwiches, is looking to hire an entertainment producer. This person will manage the creation of new shows and content for the company.

The job has been advertised since November on Chick-fil-A's website. The producer will oversee various types of programs like animated shows, reality and game shows, and podcasts. These will be available on Chick-fil-A's new PLAY app, which is designed for families.

Chick-fil-A's new content won't mainly be about their food or brand. Instead, they want to create shows and programs that bring people together and build community. However, they will make sure that all the content fits the Chick-fil-A style and is suitable for families.

They plan to release new content on their app regularly every year, following a specific schedule.

The person hired as the entertainment producer at Chick-fil-A will report to the entertainment creative director.

To apply, you need at least five years of experience in leading TV or show production, like being a showrunner or main series writer. A college degree is needed, or a similar mix of education and experience. Chick-fil-A also wants someone who is good at meeting deadlines and paying attention to details.

Chick-fil-A didn't respond to a request for more information about the job and the PLAY app. The date for the app's launch hasn't been announced.

In November, Chick-fil-A released new menu items, merchandise, and a 10-minute short film called "The Spark Tree2." This film and four others are part of their "Stories of Evergreen Hills" series, and you can watch them on their YouTube channel.

Chick-fil-A, closed on Sundays, has over 3,000 restaurants in the U.S., Puerto Rico, and Canada. They employ more than 200,000 people, as mentioned in a press release from late November.
