Drury Managment Team Named Burger King Franchisee of the Year

We are fortunate to have some incredible businesses in our community. Too many to highlight actually, but two recently received awards worth mentioning. 

The Drury Management team, part of the MidAmerica Hotel Corporation, was recognized as the Franchisee of the year at the Global Burger King Convention in Las Vegas. There are more than 13,000 Burger King Restaurants in 89 countries and the Drury team is actually the first Burger King Franchisee in North America to receive this award.

The Drury Restaurants organization has employed over 100,000 team members since 1972 when the first Burger King Restaurant opened on Broadway. In fact, there are plenty of leaders in this community who got their start as one the team members.

Drury restaurants has served over 300 million guests over the past 45 years. More than 60 million Whoppers!

Additionally, Plaza Tire recently received the 2017 Dealer of the Year Award from Modern Tire Dealer, the most prestigious award in the tire dealer industry.

Vernon “Pee Wee” Rhodes started the company 54 years ago in Cape. His sons, Mark and Scott now run the company which has grown tremendously. Plaza Tire now has 62 stores in four states generating more than $80 million in annual sales. With over 450 employees and more than 100,000 tires in their warehouse, Plaza Tire is the 18th largest tire dealer in the nation.

It is great to have both of these incredible companies headquartered here in Cape!
