ROYERSFORD PA – Jaret Mitchell, who operates the Chick-fil-A Restaurant franchise in the Limerick Square Shopping Center in Royersford PA, has been selected by the company as a recipient of its Symbol of Success Award, spokeswoman Desiree Mahr has announced.

Mitchell was among 69 restaurant operators who received the award during the chain’s annual February meeting in Orlando FL.

As part of his reward, Mitchell was allowed to select any one of 13 Ford vehicle models of his choice. First-time Symbol of Success winners receive the keys for one year; operators who match or exceed the same level of performance for a second consecutive year earn title to the vehicle.

Since Chick-fil-A Founder S. Truett Cathy initiated the Symbol of Success program in 1975, more than 1,000 Operators have earned the award. Of those, 157 of those have received the title to the vehicle in the second year.

“Our restaurant franchisees are Chick-fil-A’s very own symbols of success,” company President and CEO Dan T. Cathy said. “Their persistent commitment to excellence in customer service, and ability to provide unmatched product quality to each customer on every visit, is what shapes and maintains our brand.”

Chick-fil-A reported it finished strong in 2011 by marking the company’s 44th consecutive year of sales growth. It said it achieved record system-wide sales of more than $4 billion, representing a 13.08-percent increase over 2010.
