Wilmington IHOP Restaurant Salutes Our Fallen Troops
Rebecca Smith and her team at the Eagles Landing IHOP restaurant in Wilmington, NC, are always thinking outside the box and it shows with innovative ideas and action. They created a salute to our fallen soldiers in Afghanistan after the news of a suicide bomber was announced to the nation. Team Wilmington, set up an empty table in recognition of these thirteen American heroes. In addition, they placed thirteen small American Flags along the entrance to their IHOP Family Restaurant. The motivation was heartfelt by all employees to not let the lives of these American soldiers go unnoticed.
The result of their patriotic actions, however, was well deserved recognition not only from local Wilmington, NC, TV and newspapers, but it caught the attention of IHOP Corporate officials too.
We could all do with a little leadership. Thanks Rebecca and company for stepping up and acting on your emotions in the best way. Caring makes all the difference.
ONCE AGAIN GREAT LEADERS DELIVERS GREAT RESULTS!
