A 16-year-old’s first job at Chick-fil-A® who learned ‘second-mile service’ saves operators an estimated $35 million over the years

ATLANTA, Ga., March 21, 2024 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — James Finlinson, co-founder of OneClickApp.com™, develops a software solution for his restaurant’s director at 16 years old. In 2017, James Finlinson was a busy high schooler in Ammon, Idaho. His cheerful attitude made him a perfect fit for his first job at the local Chick-fil-A® restaurant. One day James noticed his director, Jessica, spending several hours daily transcribing schedules from her computer to paper. He offered to help fix the problem and that is how OneClickApp™ was born.

Encouraged by his father, Jan Finlinson, to learn software programming, James began to code after school, nights, and weekends to fix Jessica’s problem. Jessica paid James $75 per month to improve the system.

Seeking inspiration, James and his dad visited the Chick-fil-A® Support Center in Atlanta, GA. While on a tour they met two software engineers who encouraged James to continue. However, James was stuck. He had one paying customer but didn’t know how to start or grow a business and was leaving on a service mission for his church in two weeks.

James was then introduced him to Michael Alvarez, a successful entrepreneur and mobile apps pioneer, including being the first to launch a national restaurant search app named “Munch.” Michael quickly published a website and organized a webinar. When leaders of 50 restaurants attended, Michael recognized that there was a need and this concept deserved further testing.

A year later when James completed his mission, he returned home to a thriving business serving over 80 Chick-fil-A® restaurants under Michael’s direction as CEO and Jan Finlinson as CTO.

Today, the value OneClickApp™ has provided Chick-fil-A® Operators is estimated at over $35 Million by increasing employee retention, communication, and efficiencies. Serving over 40,000 team members and leaders daily, now nearly one in five Chick-fil-A® Operators of standalone stores are connected to OneClickApp™.

“I feel blessed to be able to serve so many of the great team members and leaders for the company that I owe my success to, Chick-fil-A,” said James Finlinson.
