McDonald’s CEO Steve Easterbrook awarded local McDonald’s restaurant owners Chip and Teresa McGeehan the Fred L. Turner Golden Arch Award, an honor that was created to celebrate the restaurant’s best owner-operators around the globe. The McGeehans were recognized with the honor on April 10 in Orlando, Florida, at the McDonald’s Worldwide Convention and Conference that had more than 30,000 McDonald’s owners, suppliers and vendors in attendance. Chip and Teresa were pair of 13 owner/operators in the U.S. and of 36 around the world to receive the award, which is the highest honor in the McDonald’s System. A recent press release said the McGeehans received the award because of the difference they are making for their customers, people and communities in which they serve. “The McGeehans' high standards set the bar for owner/operators globally,” it says. These standards include running great restaurants with fresh food and fast and friendly service in a contemporary environment. “By delivering on that every day, the McGeehans are truly keeping Fred’s legacy alive,” it says.
