Don graduated from the United States Naval Academy in 1984. After a 10-year career serving our country as a Naval Flight Officer, he resigned his commission and began work as a production manager for Fresh Express. Inc. Throughout both his Navy and business careers, Don had an entrepreneurial itch. That itch was finally scratched when he and his wife, Wendy, opened Chick-fil-A Parker on May 9, 2002.
As the owner/operator of Chick-fil-A Parker, Don is passionate about using his business to give back to the Parker community. Whether it’s empowering young students through Chick-fil-A Leader Academy or being a means of support and blessing during times of trial or tragedy, he loves to use his platform to benefit Parker.
“I love being part of the fabric of the Parker community — the community that blesses me daily,” says Don. “I am privileged to live, work, worship and enjoy a small town where folks want to get to know each other, and I get to serve and bless my Parker neighbors every day. That’s FUN.”
