PEWAUKEE — As the Chick-fil-A on Capitol Drive nears its March 14 grand opening, the restaurant is in the process of hiring 85 employees and Kyle Bartz has been named manager.

Bartz, a St. Louis native, has worked at several Chick-fil-A locations and started as a team member before he was promoted into various leadership positions. He is filling full-time and part-time positions in all areas of the Pewaukee restaurant, 1454 Capitol Drive, including leadership development, hospitality, catering, training and marketing. Each position will include benefits such as potential scholarships for continuing education, having Sundays off and flexible schedules.

Bartz, his wife, Julie, and their two children are excited to open a Chick-fil-A restaurant of their own in Pewaukee, according to the announcement.

Named one of the “best places to work” by Glassdoor, Chick-fil-A is known for hiring and retaining talent and offering a supportive workplace with opportunities for leadership development, respect for work-life balance and competitive wages.

Chick-fil-A Team Members are eligible for the chain’s initiative, Remarkable Futures, which provides $14.5 million in annual scholarships. Ranging from $2,500 to $25,000, the scholarships are based on leadership, community involvement and academic achievement. Chick-fil-A, which employs more than 75,000 people through corporate positions and franchised locations, has provided almost $60.5 million to help pay for college since a formal scholarship program was initiated 45 years ago in 1973.
