The business and leadership development company specializes in training for food safety certification

We're delighted that Church's Chicken has selected MindLeaders for their training needs.

Atlanta, GA-based Church's Chicken -- a recognized leader in the chicken quick-serve restaurant segment -- has entered into an agreement with MindLeaders, Inc. of Dublin, OH whereby MindLeaders NEHA-Certified Professional Food Manager training will be delivered to company-owned restaurant trainees via the internet as computer-based, self-paced learning. Upon completion of the Certified Professional Food Manager training (endorsed by NEHA- the National Environmental Health Association), store manager candidates will undertake certification examinations administered by Prometric. Passage of the examination will result in a nationally recognized designation of 'Certified Professional Food Manager'.

"Food Safe handling practices are taken very seriously at Church's. With increasing demands for Food Safety certification we searched for a provider that could satisfy our diversified needs cost effectively. MindLeaders was the 'hands down' choice due to their user friendly interface, bi-lingual engaging content, sophisticated tracking and superior customer service and support. Feature for feature, MindLeaders offered the best value," said Jim Parrish, Church's EVP and Chief Operating Officer.

Franchise-owned Church's restaurants--responsible for their own, individual training programs--may purchase the MindLeaders training program for their managers and hourly staffs. Additionally, MindLeaders offers a Professional Food Handler course for non-manager, hourly staff.

"We're delighted that Church's Chicken has selected MindLeaders for their training needs." says Bill Vear, MindLeaders Sales Director. "Food safety and proper food handling are important issues to the American consumer. MindLeaders is confident that our close relationships with the National Environmental Health Association and Prometric testing has resulted in our being able to deliver a curriculum that will prove enormously valuable to Church's Chicken and its 156 million annual store visitors."
