Jason Guiher, Manager of the McDonald’s Restaurant at 220 Portland Way N., has won a Ray Kroc Award, an accolade that recognizes the top performing McDonald’s restaurant managers globally.

Guiher was one of 340 McDonald’s Restaurant Managers around the world (representing the top one percent of restaurant managers) to receive the honor, which includes a cash prize and a trophy.

Guiher, who has been working for McDonald’s for 11 years, will be awarded their prize on April 13, 2016 at the Ray Kroc Awards Gala in Orlando, Florida hosted by Steve Easterbrook, McDonald’s President and Chief Executive Officer, and David Fairhurst, McDonald’s Executive Vice President and Chief People Officer. Guiher has worked at both the Galion and Bucyrus location and was recognized as an Outstanding General Manager in 2014.

“This is such an honor and I want to thank all the members of my team,” Guiher said. “The success of our restaurant started with the introduction of Restaurant Department Management (RDM) and each member helping brace the initiative. RDM keeps my team engaged as they learn and apply those learning’s to the everyday operations of the restaurant.”

McDonald’s owner-operators and regional management nominate restaurant managers for the Ray Kroc Awards to recognize their hard work, dedication, and commitment to McDonald’s and its customers.

“Guiher was nominated for his leadership, ability to balance all of the systems in the restaurant and his ability to develop the team to help us reach goals,” local owner/operator Scott Nickell said. “He is a truly valuable part of our organization.”
