Elaina Bryant

Elaina Bryant grew up near Dallas, TX. She moved to Arkansas to attend the University of Arkansas and studied childhood development. She started working for Jim Bryant at Chick-fil-A North College in 2011. While at North College she was a team member, closing supervisor, marketing director, and executive administrative assistant. The best part of her time at North College was meeting her husband Chris! They moved to Dallas in 2019, and she worked at Chick-fil-A there as a Training Director. Later in 2021, they moved back to Arkansas and she joined the Rogers team. She's the first remote employee working for Jim but does her best to visit the stores every month so she can stay connected to the team. Her favorite part about working at Chick-fil-A is the relationships she develops with the team and guests. Outside of work, Elaina enjoys spending time with her dogs, Penny (Golden retriever) and Stanley (Corgi), baking, gardening, flipping her house, hiking, and traveling. 

Evan Hegel

Evan grew up just outside of Boulder, Colorado in a family of 7, and met two lifelong friends at Calvary Bible Church in middle school. The three have been best friends ever since (despite one being a pastor in Phoenix, AZ, a captain in the Airforce and instructor pilot for C17s in Altus, OK, and working for Chick-fil-A in Rogers, AR, respectively). In late 2016, he moved to NW Arkansas to finish school and unintentionally found a wonderful, healthy local church which is the main reason he has stayed in the area after graduating in 2018. He is Pleasant Grove Road's Senior Director and has worked for Chick-fil-A for 6 years. The thing he most enjoys about working at Chick-fil-A is the opportunity to invest in, and develop future leaders in and outside of the restaurant. Evan has one wonderful, well-behaved Siberian Forest Cat named Timber, and if he's not at work will be climbing or reading in his spare time (Evan, not his cat. His cat doesn't have a job)

Garrett Crawford

Garrett Crawford has been with Chick-fil-A for 7 years. He has been married to his wife, Jessi, for 6 years and they have a 1-year-old daughter named Olivia and a dog named Moses.  His favorite part of working at Chick-fil-A is the company culture and values, and how we strive to always run the business better.  Outside of work, he likes to read, write, and assemble and paint model planes and cars.
