Hi, I'm Bryan Strole, Owner/Operator of your Chick-fil-A here on Airport Road in Arden, North Carolina. I am so excited to be a part of the greater Asheville community! A little about myself:
I was born in South Florida and raised in Wake Forest, North Carolina, where I began working for Chick-fil-A when I was 15 years old at the Crabtree Valley Mall location in Raleigh, North Carolina. Becoming a team leader at 16 and a manager at 18, working at Chick-fil-A as a teenager was one of the best times in my life!
When I was 19, I joined the United States Air Force as an F-16 Crew Chief. Stationed at Luke Air Force Base, Arizona for five years and Osan Air Base, South Korea for one year, I was responsible for daily flight and maintenance requirements of the F-16 aircraft. I was in charge of launch, recovery, and preflight/thru flight/BPO inspections, ground handling, minor maintenance, engine runs, and servicing.
After finishing my six year enlistment with the Air Force and graduating from graduate school with my MBA, I missed Chick-fil-A a lot. I decided to apply to become an Operator. After many interviews, I was blessed to be given the opportunity to become the Owner/Operator of Chick-fil-A Asheville Mall in Asheville, North Carolina. After working at the Asheville Mall location for almost five years, building an amazing team and having a great experience, in 2021 I was then given the opportunity to become the Operator the Chick-fil-A, located on Airport Road in Arden, North Carolina. We are so excited for this opportunity and can't wait to serve you!
Along my journey as an Operator, I met and married my beautiful bride Lacey and we have a two-year old daughter, Ellie Mae. Along with my Lord and Savior, they are the loves of my life!
