Gracias! Georgia Restaurant Association Names Willy’s Mexicana Grill a 2016 GRACE Award Finalist
Say GRACE and pass the guac. Willy’s Mexicana Grill founder and CEO Willy Bitter is a finalist for the 2016 Georgia Restaurant Association Crystal of Excellence (GRACE) Award. Willy and Willy’s were nominated by peers for the Distinguished Service Award, one of the eight award categories designated by the Georgia Restaurant Association(GRA). Providing leadership, demonstrated community service, charitable involvement and/or service to the restaurant industry are among the criteria considered for the honor. Willy’s rolls the burrito-loving arms of its 28 Georgia locations around all of these acts of kindness. One example is Willy’s commitment to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta through fundraising as well as involvement in the organization’s “Positive Sprouts” initiative to establish healthy eating habits and nutritional awareness. The GRA will announce this year’s winners at the 10th Annual GRACE Awards Gala taking place on November 13 at the Delta Flight Museum. A portion of Gala proceeds will benefit the Atlanta Community Food Bank. Find ticket and sponsorship information here.
