Chuck Day of Manning Brothers earns SEFAPro Level 7 Status
SEFA is pleased to announce that Chuck Day, President of Manning Brothers in Athens, GA, has earned SEFAPro Level 7 status. Day, a 36-year FES industry veteran, is now one of six SEFAPros to have earned this elite status. For Day, the knowledge and hands-on experience gained while navigating the program put him in a great position as a Dealer Principal.
“The first question we ask someone who wants to open a restaurant is, ‘What is your menu?’ We build it from that point and become their confidant. That’s what SEFAPro teaches you,” said Day. “But I want to keep going farther. To me, this achievement means that I have the ability to train my people to move up as well. My staff includes new salespeople and veterans that might not attend every training event. Now I can help teach them.”
