Meet Amber Thomas, A Former Chick-Fil-A Employee Who Became Its First Black Franchise Owner In San Diego County

From intern to running things! Amber Thomas is making Chick-Fil-A history as the owner of the chain’s first Black-owned restaurant in San Diego. With no desire to become an entrepreneur, Thomas hopes that her journey can inspire others to think outside of the box and go for the gold. “She wanted to be a physical therapist and she was adamant about that,” said her mother, Monica Hopkins in an interview with 10News. “She was like, ‘No, mom. I’m not going to be a Chick-fil-A owner,’ and then it just got in her blood. Her sister inspired her to be an owner and it went from there.”
