ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. --
The Wynn Dining Facility is cooking up excellence for this year’s coveted John L. Hennesy Award.
Established in 1957, the award recognizes excellence in Air Force food service operations. Judges evaluate Air Force food service on management effectiveness, force readiness support, food quality, employee and customer relations, resource conservation, training and safety awareness.
The award is named for John Lawrence Hennessy, a hotel and restaurant executive who led the Hoover Commission’s Military Food Service and Commissaries task force to improve military food service. Hennessy began his hospitality career as a hotel freight elevator operator and worked his way up to vice president of Hilton Hotels.
