Tom Barnett, the CEO of 24 Burger King franchises in Phoenix, Arizona recently won Franchisee of the Year, winning a Rolex and Corvette.
To show his thanks to his employees, the serial franchisee sold both the watch and the car and raised $120,000 with other co-franchisees, and handed it all out in bonuses to over 100 employees.
“I just couldn’t believe it. I was in shock,” Charity Callahan, a 15-year employee, said. “It was almost an entire month’s worth of pay for me. They made us all feel appreciated.”
One of Barnett’s franchise co-owners said that “the award needed to go to the people who got us here” (Source: Newser.com)
