Chick-fil-A wants to recruit an entertainment producer to expand its non-food offerings to its customers.
The company famous for his chicken sandwiches has a job posting for an Entertainment Producer role who will be responsible for “overseeing the day-to-day creative production of original scripted and unscripted programming produced by Chick-fil-A and its various production partners and content creators.” It appears to have been online since at least late November on its website.
Content under entertainment producer Chick-fil-A's purview will stream on the company's “soon-to-launch” PLAY app, a family-friendly platform that could offer “scripted podcasts and audio adventures, original animations, reality shows and games. , and other live action programming, scripted or unscripted,” depending on the job posting.
Chick-fil-A noted in the post that the content it seeks to create would “not necessarily” focus on the chain's products or brand, instead aiming to foster connection, care and community . Nonetheless, the listing states that one of the entertainment producer's responsibilities would be to ensure that content is “consistent with the Chick-fil-A brand and the expectations of family audiences.”
It appears that Chick-fil-A aims to use an “annual release and drop schedule” for content on the app.
THE entertainment producer will work under Chick-fil-A's creative director of entertainment, according to the job posting.
Among the qualifications listed by Chick-fil-A, applicants must have at least five years of experience as a showrunner, lead creature producer or series writer, and they must have a college degree or a “combination equivalent education, training and experience.” The message also states that the company prefers someone good with deadlines, attention to detail and other characteristics.
Chick-fil-A declined FOX Business' request for comment on the position and the application. The post does not specify when the PLAY app will debut.
In November, as the company launched some menu items and merchandise for the holiday season, it also released a 10-minute short film called “The Spark Tree2,” which was also released on its YouTube channel. He has published four others of varying lengths in recent years, all of which fall under his “Stories from Evergreen Hills” umbrella.
Chick-fil-A, which is not open on Sundays, has a physical presence in the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada and consists of more than 3,000 restaurants. In its stores, it has more than 200,000 employees, according to a press release at the end of November.
