Who is Brad Burkholder?

Brad Burkholder has been a Chick-Fil-A operator for 11 years and been with the company for 12 and a half. He is currently the operator of the freestanding restaurant off Lindle Road in Harrisburg. He is a wealth of knowledge with a lot of wisdom to offer entrepreneurs. He is also my brother-in-law and a big supporter of the show.

“I always say the valley is where we learn our character and our true commitment.”

“I always encourage entrepreneurs, find someone that you can delegate the things that you don’t want to do or that you’re not good at, and find those people, delegate to them—usually they’re way better at it than we are.”
