A new Chick-fil-A® restaurant will begin serving the Shreveport community on Thursday, May 4. Chick-fil-A, Inc. has selected Greg Petersen as the independent franchised Owner/Operator of Chick-fil-A Mansfield Road.   

Located at 9122 Mansfield Road, Chick-fil-A Mansfield Road is a drive-thru location that will be open for drive-thru, outdoor seating or carry out from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Visit chick-fil-a.com/delivery to view delivery options in your area. 

The Chick-fil-A Mansfield Road restaurant joins two other Chick-fil-A restaurants serving the wider Shreveport market.  

Locally Owned and Operated 

As full-time, hands-on leaders in their restaurants and communities, Chick-fil-A Owner/Operators proudly reside in the communities in which they serve.  

In Shreveport, Petersen will be responsible for all day-to-day activities of the business, including employing approximately 120 full- and part-time Team Members, serving guests and cultivating relationships with local organizations and businesses.  

Petersen’s career began at Chick-fil-A Lake Woodlands Drive in Houston during high school, where he worked alongside his older brother. As a Team Member, he was the recipient of a Chick-fil-A scholarship which supported his studies at Brigham Young University in Manufacturing Engineering. After jumping into the tech startup world after college, Petersen decided to return to Chick-fil-A, where he honed his leadership skills through Chick-fil-A’s Leadership Development Program and as a general manager. Petersen has nearly 10 years of experience with Chick-fil-A, but this is his first time stepping into an Operator role.  

Petersen and his wife, Ashley, moved to Shreveport in February and have a 6-month-old son named Jaxen. Outside of work, Petersen enjoys golfing, fishing, hiking and spending time outdoors.  

“My vision for Chick-fil-A Mansfield Road is to bring joy to our guests through fresh and nourishing food,” Petersen said. “I am very excited to make an impact on the lives of my Team Members and guests and serve the Shreveport community.”   

Caring for the Shreveport Community 

In celebration of the opening, Chick-fil-A, Inc. will donate $25,000 to Feeding America in honor of the new restaurant. These funds will be distributed to partners in the greater Shreveport area to aid in the fight against hunger.  

In addition, Chick-fil-A Mansfield Road is recognizing 100 local heroes making an impact in the Shreveport area by providing them with free Chick-fil-A meals for a year. 

Petersen’s restaurant will plan to participate in Chick-fil-A Shared Table®, an initiative that redirects surplus food from the restaurant to local soup kitchens, shelters, food banks and nonprofits in need. To date, more than 18 million meals have been served nationwide from Chick-fil-A Shared Table donations. 

Team Member Investment 

Chick-fil-A Operators are committed to hiring, developing and retaining top talent and providing a positive work environment for people of all ages and backgrounds. Team Members have opportunities for flexible work hours and leadership growth, competitive pay and benefits, hands-on training and mentoring and the chance to apply for scholarships to support their continuing education.  

Delicious Food; Outstanding Customer Service 

Chick-fil-A is known for serving customers great-tasting food made with high-quality ingredients, including the original Chick-fil-A® Chicken Sandwich. Made with a real, whole, boneless breast of chicken with no added fillers, the breaded chicken is pressure cooked in fully-refined peanut oil. Chick-fil-A was one of the first in the industry to eliminate chicken raised with antibiotics to ensure guests have an option for high-quality food on the go. 

To complement the great-tasting chicken, fresh produce is delivered to Chick-fil-A restaurants up to six times a week for the best quality and flavor. The fresh ingredients are raised and grown by farmers who share the company’s elevated quality and safety standards, so guests feel good about their meal.
