  • Hanner Enterprises -

This company operates five McDonald's restaurants in Grays Harbor and Pacific counties. CEO / owner Julianne Hanner has taken an active role promoting the program. She intends to reach out to other Northwest McDonald franchise owners (about 300 members) as the program moves ahead. Already, she’s raised the idea of LiLA portability between McDonald’s restaurants—so, for example, employees that move from her restaurant in Aberdeen (along Washington's coast) to attend Washington State University (on the eastern side of the state), could take their LiLA with them. Participation is open to her 200-plus workers with a monthly match of up to $30 per worker.
