We at World Manager have had the pleasure of working with some of the hardest working brands in the world. We know what it takes to operate in a multi-location environment, and we recognize those that put in the extra effort to ensure success. To show our respect and support for those high performing locations we created the Training Excellence program.

The World Manager Training Excellence program was designed to recognize individual store teams and leaders who continuously emphasize training, ensuring their teams are ready to execute at the highest levels. These teams put in the effort to stay trained so that they can create amazing customer experiences, drive sales for their stores and grow together as a team. To all of those who have earned this award, be proud of your accomplishment and never stop learning!

Sonny's BBQ

With 100 locations throughout the southeast, Sonny’s BBQ® is one of the largest and most popular barbecue restaurant companies in the country. Floyd “Sonny” Tillman and his wife, Lucille founded Sonny’s BBQ in 1968 in Gainesville, Fla. in hopes of creating a local BBQ joint for their community to enjoy. Forty-nine years later, Sonny's BBQ continues to be just that. At Sonny’s it’s all about Southern hospitality and having fun. It’s about being passionate and constantly perfecting the craft of BBQ. It’s about being trustworthy and dependable. It’s about making sure that when people come in for our signature BBQ, they feel right at home, just like they have since 1968
