Waldorf’s Presswala named franchise’s ‘Marketer of the Year’
Waldorf Boston’s Restaurant & Sports Bar owner Pank Presswala recently received the franchise’s Marketer of the Year Award at the Boston Pizza & Boston’s 2016 Franchisee Conference in Toronto. He was also inducted into The President’s Club.
Presswala and two staff members, general manager Dave Widenor and marketing manager Victoria Oleksak, were recognized for their planning and executing of all Boston’s national promotions, as well as developing local store marketing programs that earned positive results over the year.
“Boston’s in Waldorf has continually pushed the envelope of connecting with their community,” Brad Bevill, vice president of marketing at Boston’s U.S. headquarters in Dallas, said in a press release. “Whether it be one of several fundraisers they have hosted or innovative programs like reintroducing our heart-shaped pizzas as a Mother’s Day special, Pank and his team are leaders in our organization.”
Boston Pizza International’s President’s Club recognizes superior franchisees for overall performance, accomplishments and sustained growth. Inductees are also evaluated based on the caliber of management abilities and practices.
“Being recognized as the Marketer of the Year and inductee into The President’s Club validates all of the hard work my team and I have put forth over the last 12 months,” Presswala said in the release. “Our commitment to providing an exceptional restaurant experience is contagious and is exemplified through every single one of my staff members working at the Waldorf location.”
Over the last seven years, the restaurant has donated over $50,000 to a number of charities and were also the recipient of Boston’s “Big Heart” Award in previous years.
