Northwest Ohio is home to two of the nation's top McDonald's restaurant managers.
Juanita Alfaro recently received the Ray Kroc Award, an annual performance-based award that recognizes the top performing McDonald's restaurant managers in the country.
Named after McDonald's Corporation founder Ray Kroc, the award was established 13 years ago in 1999 to honor hardworking restaurant managers - those who make Ray Kroc's vision of excellence come to life in restaurants and for customers each day.
A select 140 managers were chosen this year to receive the Ray Kroc Award, an honor that comes with a cash prize, a Ray Kroc award trophy, ring and pin and a trip to Chicago for an awards gala.
Each year, this prestigious award is given to the top 1 percent of McDonald's U.S. restaurant managers to recognize their superior performance and achievement.
"Juanita started as a crew person and has been part of our organization for nearly 20 years. We are truly proud to have Juanita as part of our McDonald's family and commend her on this truly amazing accolade," said Larry Ball, McDonald's local owner/operator
Alfaro has worked at the South Main Street McDonald's in Bowling Green for nine years as a manager. She's also involved in the Rudolph Little League, Eagles Club, Ronald McDonald House, and other activities that reinforce her commitment to being a contributing member of the community as well as a valued McDonald's employee.
"Last year, Juanita did an outstanding job rallying her team's support for our fundraising campaign for the building of a new Ronald McDonald House," said Ball. "She challenged her team to raise more than $4,000 and promised them she'd shave her head of they met the challenge. They exceeded her expectations and she went through with her promise - she shaved her head after the more than $4,000 was raised."
Winners of the Ray Kroc Award run high performing, profitable restaurants that meets McDonald's critical customer standards of quality, service, and cleanliness. They have strong business knowledge and achieve superior results in restaurant operations, people management and building the business.
Additionally, nine local McDonald's managers have been recognized nationally and received the Outstanding Restaurant Managers Award.
The McDonald's Outstanding Restaurant Manager Award is an annual national honor given to managers that have exhibited superior results in selected areas of performance, including quality, service, sales, cleanliness and operational excellence. The award recognizes up to 10 percent of top restaurant managers across the United States.
Stephen Ball, manager of the East Wooster Street McDonald's, received the award.
