Bob Duffessy, Owner/Operator

I started my career with Chick-fil-A in 2000 as a fry cook. In 2008, I was given the opportunity to operate Valley View Mall and in 2015 I was selected as the operator for Chick-fil-A Bonsack. I was born and raised in Fort Lauderdale, Florida but am now proud to call Bonsack, Virginia my home. I am passionate about developing strong, mature, young adults that can persevere under pressure and that will seek wisdom. At Chick-fil-A Bonsack, we strive to keep high expectations, high accountability, and cover it with grace. It is such a pleasure to create long-term relationships with our guests each and every day.

My first, and only, job has been with Chick-fil-A. I started as a team member in 2012 and have been able to grow through my experiences and education to become a stronger, more impactful leader. During my time with Chick-fil-A, I have also achieved a business management degree from Liberty University. My job includes overseeing all the daily operational needs that the store has, but my true passion is serving my community by investing in the young men and women at our store.

My top priority is making sure our team is going the 2nd mile and meeting all our guests needs. I am thankful to work with such a great leadership team that encourages me, invests in me, and wants to see me succeed.

Ashley Matz, Office Manager

I am the Office Manager for Chick-fil-A Bonsack and have been with Chick-fil-A since our grand opening. I started working here as a team member over 4 years ago and have grown from a shift leader, to a manager, to working more behind the scenes. The best part of my job is truly the people I work with and get to be around every day. Chick-fil-A is my second home and I am blessed to have a place that shares the same values and standards.
