Each year during recognized Heritage Months (i.e., Asian-Pacific American, Black History, Hispanic/Latino), the Multicultural Foodservice & Hospitality Alliance (MFHA) celebrates senior leaders from among its corporate members, through the publication of a full page ad in Nation’s Restaurant News (NRN). Described as Tribute ads, the featured members represent people of color who have achieved career success in foodservice & hospitality. Those whose accomplishment and recognition are intended to inspire other Multiculturals of the real probability of success in this industry. More importantly, MFHA believes that this career achievement, alongside the accomplishments of MFHA in the realm of providing Cultural Intelligence in the industry, would not be completely possible without the support of non-multicultural leaders. Thus, it publishes a special Tribute ad edition: Multicultural Allies. In this ad, the featured allies are usually the organizations’ top decision makers; executives who genuinely believe in the business benefits of building culturally intelligent brands and leaders. Through clear and enduring corporate directives, they pave the way to providing opportunities for top tier, diverse talent.
This July marks MFHA’s 4th Multicultural Allies Tribute ad and is pleased to once again honor the commitment of these allies – all 30 of them in 2015. From Chief Executive Officers to Consultant, MFHA is proud to be associated with them and to continue to enjoy strong support. This year’s honorees come from the following member-companies*: Bama Companies, Ben E. Keith, Brinker International, California Pizza Kitchen, Coca-Cola, Darden Restaurants, Denny’s, General Mills, Golden Corral, Gould Ideas, Kellogg Company, KFC, Kraft Foods, McDonald’s Corp., Olive Garden, PepsiCo Foodservice, Red Lobster, Sodexo, TGIFridays, The Wendy’s Company, Wingstop, and YUM!
