KENDALL, Fla. – One South Florida Chick-fil-A owner is taking a different approach to a full week of work.

Justin Lindsey said ever since he switched his employees to a three-day, 14- hour workweek, the applications just keep coming in.

In February, he divided his staff into two groups and alternated weekly schedules into three-day configurations of 13 to 14-hour shifts.

Since making the change, Lindsey said he has received more than 420 applications for his Kendall restaurant and has a 100% retention at the management level.
