SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

McDonald's General Manager Pamela Washington earned the Ray Kroc Award on Tuesday for being one of the top performing managers in the country.

It's a major accomplishment for an ArkLaTex manager. Washington manages the McDonald's Tinseltown restaurant located at 1635 East Bert Kouns Highway in front of the Walmart.

"Hard work. And, without my team, I wouldn't be nothing," Washington says, explaining the secret of her success.

The Ray Kroc Award is an annual, performance-based award that recognizes the top performing McDonald's restaurant managers in the country. Named after McDonald's Corporation founder Ray Kroc, the award was established in 1999 "to honor hardworking restaurant managers."

"I give 110 percent," Washington says. "We do a lot of sales and put a lot of cars through the drive-through, like 125 cars, and we just constantly push all the time."

This prestigious award is given to the top 1 percent of McDonald's U.S. restaurant managers to recognize their superior performance and achievement.

Washington received a $2,500 check, a trophy and a trip to Chicago for an awards gala to be held this spring.
