Dawn started with Doherty in February of 2013. She became acting General Manager in 2014 and was then promoted to General Manager at Applebee’s Woodbridge in January 2015.
Dawn has continued to raise standards in operations, training, and finances resulting in Applebee’s Woodbridge becoming a training restaurant. Under her leadership, Applebee’s Woodbridge has consistently had some of the highest SPA scores in our company and great financial numbers. Dawn has trained many managers and supervisors, including several who began their career at Applebee’s Woodbridge with her encouragement and development.
During the pandemic, Dawn worked tirelessly to ensure Applebee’s Woodbridge was the first restaurant to go live with outdoor dining by placing twenty-eight tables outside the mall location. She was able to get her people back to work and maximize sales for the restaurant. There is not enough that can be said regarding her abilities and efforts in making her people and the restaurant the best it can be.
Please join us in congratulating Dawn on her promotion to Executive General Manager! We wish her continued success!
