VP of Operations, Family Man & Wing King
With his family by his side is how this Checkers veteran lives it big. He’s also got a thing for Crazy Good Wings. A graduate of the University of Central Florida, Mr. Mediate first joined Checkers Drive-In Restaurants in 1993 as a Team Member. A fiery go-getter, Mr. Mediate (known as the King of Wings around the office) would quickly earn promotions to shift manager, assistant manager and General Manager before being named Orlando District Manager. “We all love to win, especially me, so we must deliver results, because that’s what all of our stakeholders are counting on from us. We get there by being guest obsessed and not compromising our standards.” &break;In 2000, Mr. Mediate assumed the position of District Manager for a franchisee that acquired 60 Checkers restaurants in Orlando, West Palm Beach, Mobile and the Biloxi/Gulfport markets, and was later named Regional Vice President. In 2006, Mr. Mediate returned to Checkers Drive-In Restaurants as a Company Director of Operations where his excitement, dedication, and love for bold flavors would lead to his current title of Vice President of Company Operations for Checkers Drive-In Restaurants where he is responsible for overseeing over 280 Checkers and Rally’s Restaurants in 18 major markets.
