Cantonment Wendy’s Manager Named As One Of The Best In The Nation

July 20, 2021

The general manager at a Cantonment Wendy’s restaurant has been recognized as one of the best in the nation.

Regina Cohron at the Wendy’s on New Market Street, just off Nine Mile Road in the Milestone area, has been recognized as one of the Top 500 General Managers for 2020 by The Wendy’s Company.

“Regina is a true leader and so deserved of this recognition; she is respected and beloved by her team and guests,” said Brian McDaniel, senior vice president for Carlisle, franchisee of The Wendy’s Company.  McDaniel added “Regina is one of 21 Wendy’s restaurant general managers with Carlisle that were selected in the Top 500 for 2020. All 21 of these individuals represent the very best of Wendy’s and Carlisle.”

General managers from the entire Wendy’s global network of more than 6,700 restaurants were evaluated against set criteria, such as customer satisfaction scores and customer count growth. The Top 500 were selected by a committee comprised of franchisee and company leadership.

    Way to go and congratulations on your recognition

    I don’t know anything about her, but I can honestly say I have never had an incorrect order at this fast food location, and the food is always great. I’ve also never had to wait long for an order, even when busy, so clearly she must be doing something right!

    I’m glad someone who clearly takes pride in her work is being recognized! Congrats and I hope others in the industry take note, because this person is setting an example others need to follow.

    I met Regina about eight years ago and can say the she and I have truly become great friends. She is one of the most giving people that I have ever known. She is truly a remarkable person. She is “One of the a very best in this nation.” Congratulations to my dear friend. You are so deserving.

    1st of all I would like to say congratulations!
    I was scrolling through my Facebook news feed and saw a familiar face Regina Cohron. Mrs. Regina provided me with the opportunity to work for Wendy’s at the age of sixteen. She surprised me by showing up to my High school graduation. I’m grateful to have met you in this lifetime. Great leaders go unrecognized. Much success to you mam.

    Sincerely A. Lang

    Good job! She’s been with Wendys for 25 years. Carlise company does not earn her customer skills, her former owners(Wendco) does for developing her. So congratulations to Regina and Wendco!

  16. Tbeall on July 20th, 2021 6:52 pm

    Maybe she can take over the worthless wendys on 29

  17. DT on July 20th, 2021 3:29 pm

    She is simply the best! She deserves this and much more! Congratulations!

  18. tg on July 20th, 2021 1:31 pm

    Wendys needs to make her District Manager to straighten out all these other Wendys. Plus nice Raise.

  19. What? on July 20th, 2021 1:23 pm

    Then why does it always take 30 minutes to get through that drive thru? If there’s more than one car in line I refuse to go there, they’re so slow there.

  20. alan orr on July 20th, 2021 1:21 pm

    It is easy to see superiority. This manager is far and above the ones that I have seen. She is to big for a single store. She makes her employer look good. She needs a to move up the ladder.

  21. alan orr on July 20th, 2021 12:57 pm

    It is easy to see the different. If you want to be the best you have to hire the best…She needs to run the company and not just the a location. She would be a great asset and the results would be very positive and take the company beyond the goal line that they currently have in their vision.

  22. Denny on July 20th, 2021 12:51 pm

    I may start going to this Wendy’s. It would add 45 minutes to my driving but would still be quicker than the wait at the one on 98 – and my order would be right! Ms. Regina should be promoted to train other managers if Wendy’s wants to keep its customers. Congratulations!

  23. Jr on July 20th, 2021 11:01 am

    CONGRATULATIONS Miss Regina!!!!! That location is way better than any other. I agree with everyone else about the one on 29 & Kingsfield. They are slow and can’t get an order right to save their lives. I asked for a single with cheeses Mayo and ketchup only. Of course I checked my bag before I left the window but when I got home…yep, you guessed it. I had 2 buns WITH cheese and ONLY Mayo and catchup. Called back to tell the manager and she stated “that’s how you asked for it to be made”. So, the one Miss Regina and her amazing staff work at is twice as far from my house I take that extra drive and without even looking I know my order is correct… this award for her and all employees there isn’t a surprise… CONGRATULATIONS to that entire staff at that location.

    Bravo and Cudos. So nice to hear about someone who still believes in doing their best, and not just getting. Refreshing. I needed to read this today. Well done.

  26. Kane on July 20th, 2021 10:12 am

    Can confirm best Wendy’s in P’cola always get my order right and the food is as good as Wendy’s food can be!!

  27. Howie on July 20th, 2021 10:03 am

    This Wendy’s is near my home and it’s the best of all the rest.

    CONGRATULATIONS Ms. Cohron for taking the time to please every customer and your employees.

    Thank you Wendy’s employees at this Milestone location.

    Couldn’t have happened to a better person. Regina and that entire staff deserve recognition for their fine work.

  30. mickey d. on July 20th, 2021 8:48 am

    Congratulations, I’ll have a double with cheese please….

  31. Karen on July 20th, 2021 8:40 am

    Congratulations! I LOVE this Wendy’s as it is close to my office. Regina is a breath of fresh air & is always so nice when I come in or go through the drive through. Last week when I went through, I barely had time to drive around the corner of the building before my order was being handed out to me! This Wendy’s is THE BEST!!

  32. Lifendason on July 20th, 2021 8:10 am

    Congratulations Ms. Cohron, thanks for doing your job and putting in 110 percent. I wished the other Wendy’s and fast food places had one like you. Maybe some do, but here recently not so much.


  33. Bonnie on July 20th, 2021 7:42 am

    Yay!! That’s Awesome!! She does exceed her excellent Customer Service skills! We Love to go to that Wendy’s!! So well deserved!! Congratulations, Regina!!

  34. Heather on July 20th, 2021 7:41 am

    My family and I have used this location since it opened. Regina is always a friendly face and comments on how big my kids are getting. She also lets me know if it’s been too long since we’ve been through the drive thru. :)

  35. Good job on July 20th, 2021 7:25 am

    Congratulations ma’am, you should train other managers so they can train their employees.

  36. john on July 20th, 2021 6:44 am

    I agree with Jason. This Wendy’s is so much better and faster than the one at Hwy 29 and Kingsfield. Perhaps this manager needs to go train employees at the other Wendy’s.

  37. ensley boy on July 20th, 2021 6:24 am

    I went to the one on 29/Burgess and got a salad. I ask for some extra dressing and the manager (said so on his shirt) throwed it down on the counter and said in a terse voice…These things cost money… Since I figured he was operating on a shoestring budget, I started using Wendys on 9 mile/New Market. Night and Day as far as service is concerned.

  38. Honest John on July 20th, 2021 6:20 am

    Congratulations Ms.Cohron.Thats the Wendy’s I use. Fast friendly service!

  39. Sharon Colbert on July 20th, 2021 5:48 am

    I sure agree Jason. They can’t even get a drive thru order correct. When you check your bag it makes them mad! Need to get retrained by this manager! Congratulations!

  40. Sandra Wolfe on July 20th, 2021 5:44 am

    Regina is a wonderul person. She is great with her employees and customers.

  41. Sandra Wolfe on July 20th, 2021 5:40 am

    Regina is not only a super manager , but a wonderful person to all. She cares about her employees and customers.

  42. amanda on July 20th, 2021 3:31 am

    Love this! I have told many people and also the workers at this Wendy’s- that all Wendy’s should be trained by this Wendy’s location. It operates better then any other Wendy’s. This location should set the bar for all others. Having a daughter that is autistic and this being her favorite treat- I was a regular at this location until we had moved to perdido key area. But I have visited every Wendy’s location in the Pensacola area multiple times…and THIS location is the best there is! By far! No doubt Regina knows what she’s doing and knows how to do it!

  43. Jason on July 20th, 2021 1:35 am

    The Wendy’s on 9 Mile Road is so much better than the restaurant on Hwy 29 @ Kingsfield. Congrats on the recognition.
