Yakima McDonalds Owners Win Prestigious Community Award

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.--A major business couple in the Yakima Valley are this year's recipients of the "Ted Robertson Community Service Award."

For the past 30 years, Greg and Jan Luring have owned and operated the McDonalds' stores across the valley and employed nearly 800 people.

With a new McDonalds coming to Downtown Yakima, the couple will be adding even more staff to their list.

"That probably is the most fulfilling thing we have is all the years of people, and I'm saying they're hundreds and hundreds of kids that hopefully our business has impacted and hopefully we have personally," said Mrs. Luring.

The Luring's have also donated many hours to community service projects. They said the people of Yakima have always been welcoming, and they're honored to be recognized.
