Hannah Kerr: Christian Artist, Newlywed and Chick-fil-A Fanatic
What a year it’s been for Christian artist Hannah Kerr. COVID completely shook up her wedding plans. The newlyweds spent most of 2020 quarantined in a tiny apartment. But Hannah didn’t let being stuck at home stop her from creating. She was busy with song writing collaborations over Zoom and, of course, making time for drive-thru Chickfila dates with her new hubby. In March, Hannah Kerr released her new single, “Same God.” Her brother, GRAMMY-winning songwriter/producer Josh Kerr, produced the single. And while the response from “Same God” has been incredible, Hannah did reveal that some day she’d love to hear her music on the Chick-fil-A instrumental soundtrack piped through the restaurants.

Why Chick-fil-A Bosses are Some of the Best People to Work For
Sick of bad bosses? You may want to apply at Chick-fil-A. The company invests a lot into developing and training leaders, which in turn creates happier employees. For the first time ever, we're welcoming our guest from last week back for another chat. Last week we got insider info on how to land a job at Chick-fil-A from Susan Carnes, an account executive with Cooper Connect. Her job is to scout talent specifically for Chick-fil-A locations. This week Susan dives into the revolutionary methods that make Chick-fil-A bosses the best, including servant leadership. It's the reason why it's not unusual to see bosses picking up trash in the parking lots or clean toilets. She also explains how these leaders keep their staff motivated with things like complimentary massages, free cars and cash bonuses. The American Consumer Satisfaction Index Restaurant Report 2019-2020 reveals that Chickfila is No. 1 among quick-service restaurants, based on quality, value and customer expectations. But experts say that's all a trickle down effect from great leadership. This episode was edited by Jim Mann, Mann Made Productions. For fan gear, freebies and more visit ChickfilaPodcast.com.

One of our favorite phrases is "Treat Others the Way Chick-fil-A Treats You."

Is This the BEST Chickfila Test Menu Item Ever??
How do you say goodbye to something you love? You savor every moment, that’s how. And that’s what we’re doing as we prepare to say so long to the Honey Pepper Pimento Chicken Sandwich. Chickfila tested this sandwich in the Upstate of South Carolina, and around Asheville, North Carolina. Before it disappeared, My Pleasure podcast hosts Alison Storm and Jim Mann share their opinions. According to chef Stuart Tracy, one of Chick-fil-A’s senior culinary developers, this is the first variation of the Original Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich they’ve tested as a seasonal item. They worked on the concept for a year before bringing it out as a test item. Chick-fil-A’s research shows 48% of consumers are interested in trying chicken entrees with new or unique flavors, and preferences for spicy flavors are growing, particularly among Millennials.

Since the start of the pandemic, Casey Cares has sent out more than 100 care packages a week to homebound families and those that have a hospitalized child. COVID has limited the ability for visitors to enter many hospitals, which means any support families receive is crucial.

A Corona Wedding With a Chick-fil-A Twist
COVID can’t stop love—at least not for these newlyweds who say it all started with a chance meeting at Chick-fil-A. Tens of thousands of couples had to cancel or postpone their weddings because of the Coronavirus. But many chose to press on despite the pandemic. Two of those determined to tie the knot are Kate and Artis. They were married in September, but say it all started with a chance meeting at Chick-fil-A. Artis and Kate were college students at the University of Central Florida, walking with friends who stopped to chat outside the campus Chick-fil-A. Kate was in a relationship at the time and didn't think much of Artis. But after graduation she moved to Orlando and recalled that Artis lived there, too. She reached out hoping for some help finding a place to live. They began to spend more and more time together and eventually decided to take their commitment to the next level.

Coffee with a Cause: Chick-fil-A’s Brew Helps Farmers THRIVE
About 7 or 8 years ago Chick-fil-A executives began to notice people were ordering their Chick-n-Minis and Egg White Grills while holding a competitor’s coffee cup. They wanted to give customers a better cup of coffee, but they didn’t want to join forces with just anyone. Then in 2014 Chick-fil-A partnered with a relatively unknown coffee company called THRIVE Farmers. One year after partnering with THRIVE Farmers, Chick-fil-A’s coffee sales doubled. Not only is it a better-tasting cup of coffee—but the mission really matches up with Chick-fil-A’s culture of putting people before profits.

Eat Chick-fil-A In Your Car? You’ll Be Obsessed With This Shark Tank Invention
Tony Lahood, Will Moujaes, and Mike Koury say they were on a bro-trip when a fast-food meal turned messy. One of the guys spilled sauce in Tony's car. The spill led them to start thinking about the in-car sauce struggle. Many late-night design sessions later, the Saucemoto Dip Clip was born. The Saucemoto is a fast-food sauce holder designed to fit just about any type of vehicle’s vent. Now you can just say no to dry waffle fries or plain nuggets while driving. My Pleasure podcast hosts Alison and Jim love the Saucemoto, but would millionaire and billionaire investors on the hit show Shark Tank grasp the concept? This was a real concern for Tony, Will, and Mike. Their pitch appeared on season 10, episode 22. They spent hours and hours preparing for their Shark Tank appearance. They knew they needed to be able to answer to every question the Sharks could ask. And they nailed it. Their episode aired and Kevin O'Leary offered $45,000 for a 25% equity share. Listen to the podcast to hear the guys explain what it was like to appear on the show and negotiate with Mr. Wonderful. This episode was edited by Jim Mann, Mann Made Productions.
