Annual GM Awards: Steve Huse’s 50th Year


September 6, 2017 marked the Annual Huse Inc (now Heartland Beef) General Manager Awards.  This year’s event was held at the historic Buskirk-Chumley Theater in downtown Bloomington, IN.  33 of HBI’s 34 stores were represented.  See here for the list of awards and winners.  The night doubled as a celebration of Stephen Huse’s 50th year with the Arby’s brand.  Steve bought his first Arby’s restaurant in 1967, just three years after the now-global brand was founded making Huse one of its pioneering franchisees.  Tom Browne, long time mentee of Steve and current CEO of Heartland Beef Inc, spoke briefly about the enormous impact Steve has had on everyone around him, within his companies, and around the community.  His influence is best described and witnessed in a tribute video seen below:
