PHOENIX, Ariz. (WKRN) – An owner of two dozen Burger King franchises in Arizona was serving up more than fries to his employees this week.
Barnett Management was recently named Burger King’s “Franchise of the Year” for its high performance, cleanliness, and speed of service.
As a prize, the owner and CEO, Tom Barnett, was given a 2015 Chevrolet Corvette and a Rolex watch. However, Barnett decided not to keep the prizes.
But instead of keeping the prizes, Barnett sold them, dividing the $120,000 between managers at his stores in Phoenix, Flagstaff, Florence and Wickenburg, as bonuses for their hard work.
Everyone from general managers, assistant managers and hourly managers received some extra cash.
Some longtime workers received as much as $5,000 in bonuses.
