Foodservice Equipment Reports magazine has recognized Burkett Restaurant Equipment & Supplies as one of seven national recipients of the prestigious Management Excellence Award in its 2019 Industry Excellence Awards.
Management Excellence Awards are among the most prestigious in the foodservice industry. The award recognizes excellence in the management of unit and facilities development, design, Equipment & Supplies purchasing and maintenance functions in commercial and noncommercial foodservice operations; in the delivery and performance of E&S functions and services by E&S dealers and distributors; and in the delivery of services by foodservice consulting firms and service agencies.
“These last few years have not always been easy as we built our infrastructure to grow Burkett,” President Jameel Burkett said. “But our future is bright, and this industrywide recognition further validates that we are doing the right things.”
This is the first time the company has ever won the award. Recipients will be honored at FER’s Industry Awards Gala on May 19, 2019 during the National Restaurant Association Show in Chicago.
“What makes a company or organization exceptional?,” the FER article asks. “Hiring the right people, providing a culture in which they can thrive and letting them not just do their jobs, but excel at them. And without exception, well-run companies and departments have strong leaders who understand that their team members’ “job” is taking care of customers— whoever those customers may be. These are the common threads we found in the seven honorees for the FER 2019 Management Excellence Awards.”
