Pancheros has named Joe Ward as its first recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award. Ward is a franchisee of two locations in the Des Moines, Iowa, area.
Having been with the company for more than eight years, Ward was recognized for providing outstanding service at his locations and being an integral resource for potential franchisees looking to join the Pancheros family. Drawn to the brand in 2004 after his first dining experience at the restaurant, Ward left the golfing industry to pursue a new career at the chain. Currently, Ward operates the West Des Moines-Jordan Creek and Johnston locations.
"We are thrilled to have the opportunity to recognize Joe, a franchisee who follows the system meticulously and performs above and beyond our expectations," said Rodney Anderson, president of Pancheros Mexican Grill. "Over the years, Joe has been a tremendous asset to the Pancheros brand, operating some of our strongest performing locations."
