Shreveport McDonald’s manager receives prestigious global award

William “Billy” Riley, manager of the McDonald’s Restaurant in Shreveport, has won a Ray Kroc Award, an accolade that recognizes the top performing McDonald’s Restaurant Managers globally.

Riley was one of 390 McDonald’s Restaurant Managers around the world, from 60 markets, (representing the top 1% percent of restaurant managers) to receive the honor, which includes a cash prize and a trophy.

After beginning his career with McDonald’s in 2009, Riley has advanced through multiple roles within the organization, most recently assuming the role of General Manager at the Shreve City McDonald’s restaurant in Shreveport earlier this year.

“William was nominated for his commitment to constant development of the people at his restaurant and making those around him better every day. That’s a large reason why William is successful today,” said local McDonald’s Owner-Operator Rikesh Patel. “We’re delighted that we are able to recognize him in this way for his commitment to McDonald’s and his coworkers.”

McDonald’s independent franchisees and regional management nominate restaurant managers for the Ray Kroc Awards to recognize those who have led their team to outstanding business performance, reflect the culture and values of the McDonald’s System, and reinforce McDonald’s purpose to feed and foster communities.

McDonald’s is committed to creating employment opportunities for people of all ages and from all backgrounds, as well as boosting employability to help people gain the skills and experience they need to progress in their careers. McDonald’s provides opportunities for progression and promoting from within; around 90% of restaurant management began their careers as crew members.
