LAWRENCEVILLE — Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen CEO Cheryl Bachelder spoke at the Gwinnett Leadership Forum last week, sharing insight into her work helming the $2-billion chicken giant.

Bachelder spoke to more than 100 attendees Thursday at the biannual event designed for business, community and educational leaders in and around Gwinnett County. She shared her “leadership legacy” of impacting the lives of others in a positive way, officials said.

“She told the audience of more than 100 about the importance of having purpose in leadership and challenged the attendees to develop their own purpose statement,” a news release said. “Her own purpose statement, she said, is ‘to develop purpose-driven leaders who exhibit competence and character in all aspects of their lives.’”

Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen has more than 2,000 quick-service restaurants operating in 25 countries.

Thursday’s event was held at the Busbee Center at Gwinnett Technical College.
