What attracted me to BKC

The first time I learned about the program was during a BKC presentation held at my University. I was given so much confidence and belief in the Leadership Development Program that I knew immediately I wanted to be part of it. BKC’s continuous message of developing talent truly attracted me to the program. I wanted to join a large international company that would let me be able to develop both professionally and personally.

My career path so far

I started the Leadership Development Program with an in-restaurant operational training for about three months, followed by a corporate rotation of another three months in business development for growing and emerging markets. In January of 2014 I was hired full-time and initiated my career as a Franchise Business Leader for the Spanish region of Andalucía and Portugal. Now I am in Franchise Performance, Mediterranean.

My view on the BKC culture

In three words – strong, human, and unique. The BKC culture truly revolves around the opportunities for learning and development. Regardless of your seniority of job level, you are always learning and developing all your skills. What I love most of all is the international atmosphere – you can always hear multiple languages around you!

My most rewarding moments working at BKC

The most rewarding and memorable moment for me up to now has to be the launch of the Home Delivery Project. This project brought together the departments of operations, marketing, brand standards, and quality to work together to deliver an excellent end product. Together, we had to transfer our passion and belief in the project to suppliers and franchisees to embark on this project with us. It required continuous coordination, hard work, and perseverance, but in the end it has been so rewarding and has delivered amazing results!

My advice if you’re thinking of applying to BKC

At BKC you can definitely count on a team and a company that believes in you that will continuously help you to learn and grow. So don’t hesitate to apply!

How I bring it to BKC every day

Nothing is more important than the attitude and energy you bring to work every day. I always bring the most positive of attitudes and energy and try to transfer this to anyone I come in contact with. My positivity and energy also helps me to improve everyday business to achieve my goals and objectives, treating BKC as if it were my own.
