McDonald’s of the Indianapolis Region announced this week that West Frankfort resident and McDonald’s owner/operator Mary Moreland is the recipient of the 2017 Women Operator Network Founders Award.
“We are so proud to announce that Mary has won the prestigious Founders Award,” said Linda Burrell, president of W.O.N.’s Indianapolis Region Chapter and Middle-Tennessee owner/operator, in a news release. “Mary has been an active member of our chapter for decades and has mentored not only her daughter (Stephanie Bishop, also a McDonald’s owner/operator), but many prospective McDonald’s women owner/operators and other young-women in her local community.”
The national and biannual honor recognizes a woman owner/operator who works beyond her own life and community and makes a difference in the lives of other women.
Mary Moreland and husband, John, own and operate 10 McDonald’s restaurants in the Tri-State and Evansville, Indiana, area. She’s been an approved operator for 35 years, and a partner in the family-owned business for more than 52 years.
