LONDON, May 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Domino's Pizza store manager, Andrew Cook, who works at the Briton Ferry store located on Neath Road, has scooped the prestigious title of Manager of the Year at Domino's annual awards ceremony that took place recently at the Echo Arena in Liverpool.
He beat off competition from Domino's stores across the UK, Ireland and Germany to take this title. Andrew was given the award for his passion and dedication as store manager - a role he has held with Domino's since 2008. During this time, Andrew has continually delivered outstanding customer service and high standards.
Andrew continues to prove his worth within Domino's with his passionate and motivational approach. He is well known in the local schools for his involvement in their assemblies, competitions and for providing school tours. He has sponsored the local children's football team - initially with his own money - because he wants to help to make a difference to the community. He and his team are normally first in the queue to donate blood.
Andrew Cook said: "I am completely overwhelmed to be given this award. I really didn't expect to win - I just go to work every day and do my job the best way I can. I love what I do and I'm passionate about delivering great tasting pizza as well as making sure that my store plays its part in supporting the community in which we are based. I'm very fortunate to have great franchisees behind me and a brilliant team in the store to enable me to do this and I'm very excited to see what the future holds."
Dariusz Joachimiak, franchisee of the Briton Ferry store said: "We're absolutely delighted Andrew has won this award. He is a fantastic team player, a strong and passionate manager and an excellent ambassador for Domino's. He has always been a winner in our eyes and we are thrilled to see that his hard work has been recognised."
Domino's Pizza's annual awards recognise the franchisees and in-store teams from the company's 810 stores in the UK, Ireland and Germany.
