Event and Marketing Planner
Restaurant Event and Marketing Planner
Chick-fil-A is very people and community focused. We host a variety of events throughout the year and participate in many local community events in National City. We are looking for a Restaurant Event and Marketing Planner with a growth mindset and ability to organize/execute events as well as build strong relationships with our community. The Event and Marketing Planner will gain hands-on experience planning and executing events, campaigns, social media, and becoming a community leader.
The ideal candidate for this position would have experience with planning and executing events, social media monitoring, and have the ability to be well connected to and involved with our local community in National City. In addition, the ideal candidate for this position would be someone with a bachelor’s degree or equivalent experience in marketing, looking for a long-term but flexible opportunity to help grow a local business. While Chick-fil-A is well-regarded national brand, a considerable amount of marketing resources are devoted to the local level because it’s a philosophy that local Operators know best how to serve their communities.
Lastly, the ideal candidate for this position would be passionate about growing sales inside and outside the restaurant. Effective marketing is that which brings results, some short-term and some long-term. Shorter-term efforts may include helping prospect, close and deliver catering opportunities, or network for off-site food sales opportunities. Longer-term efforts would include forming and deepening connections with local community partners, schools, and nonprofit entities.
Key Points & Benefits
Work in the Chick-fil-A restaurant
In order to effectively market the business, the Restaurant Event and Marketing Planner will work in and around the local restaurant. This will mostly include time devoted to marketing tasks, but may also include time in operational positions (like in our dining room or taking orders) to better compliment and understand the focus of our daily business.
Work Directly With a Chick-fil-A Operator
The Operator is an independent business person, 100% responsible for the operation of the local restaurant. The Operator has final say on marketing plans and expenses so you will be working closely with the decision maker who has a long-term interest in being a positive influence in the community.
The Restaurant Event and Marketing position has some flexibility on hours and schedule. The weekly commitment required would be in the range of 16-24 hours but additional operational time could be available if full-time work is desired. There would be hard commitments such as leadership meetings, working events scheduled in the evening (on average, once a month) or attending local Marketing Director meetings in the San Diego metro area.
All Chick-fil-A restaurants are closed on Sundays so you can have a day off to rest and spend time with family and friends. This is highly unusual in the retail business environment but it is one of the best reasons to work at Chick-fil-A!
It's a Great Place to Work
Our unusually high retention rate for the fast food industry is proof that Operators, leaders and team members really enjoy working at Chick-fil-A and want to make a difference in the community through our business.
