McDonalds ManagerThe manager of the Amherstburg McDonald’s location has received national recognition as she was named an “Outstanding Manager of the Year.”

June Reybroek received a 2013 Outstanding Manager of the Year Award from McDonald’s Canada. The award is described as one of McDonald’s Canada’s top honours and is presented to select restaurant managers across the country for consistent, outstanding performance.

Reybroek was recognized as an integral member of the business due to her significant contribution to building sales, customer satisfaction, staff training and development, equipment maintenance, coordination of local marketing programs and local restaurant operations.

“It was an honour,” she said. “It was a total honour, a surprise. It’s just great to be recognized.”

Reybroek acknowledged the award is based on restaurant results and to be recognized as one of Canada’s top McDonald’s managers was a treat for her.

“It’s a national award. To be recognized across Canada is awesome,” said Reybroek.

The local McDonald’s store has a lot of repeat business, she said, and is also a good place for youth to start in the work force.

“It’s a great part-time job for kids to go to school. It’s a great starting position for them,” said Reybroek

Reybroek added the current staff was excited with her honour as well.

“They were very happy for me,” she said.

The team at McDonald’s is great to work with, she said, and the customers are also great to serve.

“Amherstburg is a nice town,” she said. “At McDonald’s, we put our customers first, and I’m grateful to be recognized for the dedication to our guests that I strive for with my team. I love my job and I’m proud to work for McDonald’s and be called a manager of the year.”

Reybroek began her career as crew at McDonald’s in Windsor 29 years ago and has been a restaurant manager at the McDonald’s restaurant in Amherstburg for 17 years. During her time with the company, she has learned many valuable on the job skills. She is described by the company as “a strong people manager and leads a passionate and engaged team.”

She estimated she has been part of “four or five” locations in her career, after starting at the Huron Line location.

For winning the award, there was a ceremony in her honour with Reybroek also receiving a plaque and McDonald’s corporate stock.

“June is an exceptional leader who is extremely dedicated to her goal of achieving above average results,” said Gordon MacLeod, Amherstburg McDonald’s owner/operator. “With the support of her dedicated team of managers and crew, she has achieved outstanding results this past year and this award is extremely well-deserved.”
