This study was to ascertain the relationship between leadership style and Growth of Fast Food Businesses in Yenagoa Bayelsa state; a study of Crunchies fried chicken limited, Bayelsa. Objectives of the study were to determine the leadership style most prevalent in Crunchies and how it affects the attainment of enhanced service quality. The survey research design was used with a survey technique and sample of 40 respondents. The simple percentage was employed for data analysis. Findings were that although there were more democratic leaders in Crunchies Fried Chicken Limited, they also have a handful of autocratic and laissez-faire leaders who betimes suppress the enhancement of service quality. Recommendations were that leaders should not be totally democratic, autocratic or laissez-faire, but rather situational and contingent with regards to attainment of set goals/growth objectives.
