Locally Owned and Operated
As full-time, hands-on leaders in their restaurants and communities, Chick-fil-A Owner/Operators proudly
reside in the communities in which they serve.
In Bourbonnais, Klavohn will be responsible for all day-to-day activities of the business, including employing
approximately 125 full- and part-time Team Members, serving guests and cultivating relationships with local
organizations and businesses.
Klavohn considers Bourbonnais his home, having lived in the area for more than 20 years as an educator in
the community. He and his wife, Michelle, also graduated college nearby at Olivet Nazarene University. While
Klavohn is excited to open Chick-fil-A Bradley Bourbonnais, his work history began with another quick-service
restaurant. Klavohn’s family owned two Dairy Queens in Galesburg, Ill., where he spent most of his childhood.
What ultimately drew him to Chick-fil-A was the fact that Truett Cathy ran the business like Klavohn’s father
ran his, which made him eager to pursue a second career as a Chick-fil-A Operator. Klavohn was ultimately
selected to become the Operator of Chick-fil-A Moline in Moline, Ill. in 2016, where he and his family relocated
for the past six years. Klavohn is thrilled to return to the Greater Kankakee area to open the doors to Chick-fil-
A Bradley Bourbonnais alongside his wife, who will be supporting as the director of community relations, and
his two children Kate and Carson, who also work at Chick-fil-A.
“Being an Operator in a community where we have invested so much of our own lives is a dream come true,”
Klavohn said. “I look forward to giving back to a community that I love and want to be a part of making the
Greater Kankakee area the best it can be.”
Caring for the Bourbonnais Community
In honor of the opening, Chick-fil-A, Inc. will donate $25,000 to Feeding America on behalf of the new
restaurant. These funds will be distributed to partners in the greater Chicago area to aid in the fight against
In addition, Chick-fil-A Bradley Bourbonnais is recognizing 100 local heroes making an impact in the
Bourbonnais and Bradley areas by providing them with free Chick-fil-A meals for a year.
