Atlanta Native, Ashley Derby To Open First Chick-Fil-A in Downtown Los Angeles

By Posted on 0 1 m read

Atlanta native and Spelman alumni, Ashley Derby is the new franchise operator of the first ever Chick-fil-A in Downtown Los Angeles.

Derby began her career at the fast food restaurant at age 15 as a team member. The goal was to earn extra money to buy a car, but she continued working there throughout her years at Spelman.

Following graduation, she spent three years completing Chick-fil-A management and development programs, which helped her become the owner and operator of a location near the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.

“The energy in downtown L.A. is palpable,” Derby said in a press release. “I cannot wait to become a part of this growing neighborhood, and I look forward to welcoming our guests with hand-crafted food and hospitality.”

The Chick-fil-A, which is set to be a 6,500-square-foot building will be located at 7th & Figueroa, and will be up and running this fall.

Way to go Ashley Derby!
