Kuldeep Singh, the manager of the McDonald’s restaurant at Highway 10 and 152 Street for the last six years, has received a 2015 Outstanding Manager of the Year Award from McDonald’s Canada.
Singh was recognized as an integral member of the business due to his significant contribution to building sales, guest satisfaction, staff training and development, coordination of local marketing programs and local restaurant operations.
“I’m honoured to receive this award,” said Singh. “At McDonald’s, we put our guests first, and I’m thankful to be recognized for the dedication my team puts into the customer experience. I love my job at McDonald’s and I am proud to be called a manager of the year.”
After growing up in India, Singh began his career with McDonald’s in Melbourne, Australia more than 10 years ago, and has since worked his way up to restaurant manager. Along with this Manager of the Year recognition, Singh and his team have won numerous internal awards during his time at the Surrey restaurant.
“Kuldeep is very deserving of this award and all of us at McDonald’s are very excited for him,” said James Harper, Surrey area McDonald’s franchisee. “Kuldeep’s attention to crew satisfaction, which directly translates into excellent guest experiences, is second to none.”
The Outstanding Manager of the Year Award is one of McDonald’s Canada’s top honours and is presented to select restaurant managers across the country for consistent, outstanding performance.
