Cita & Julian Navarette

For Cita Navarrete and her husband, Julian, McDonald’s is a family affair.

The couple met in 2000 and worked their way up to General Managers at two McDonald’s in Wichita, KS. Cita currently calls the McDonald’s at 21st and Amidon home and Julian is a little farther west at the Central and Tyler location.

“I met Julian at the McDonald’s at 10th and Broadway and we got married right away, and we’ve been together ever since,” Cita said. “Even our two older kids work for McDonald’s!”

With McDonald’s so involved in their lives, Cita and Julian were excited when the Lanes purchased the Brend’s locations in early January.

“There’s a lot of opportunity for advancement, and I’m happy to spend the time working with my managers to help them go further,” Cita said. “I also love that I see Justin and Jim every day. It really gets me going and reminds me to do my best.”

Julian agrees that Lane Enterprises is invested in the success of their General Managers.

“It is great to work shoulder-to-shoulder with my managers,” Julian said. “I know I can challenge my managers and take them to the next level.”

Prior to working with the Lane’s, Julian was a Supervisor whose focus was more on local store marketing. He partnered with schools and other local agencies to help give back to the community. Today, he is happy to be back working directly with customers, and is excited to see what he can do for the Tyler St. location.

“In January we finally broke the record of hitting over 100 cars in the drive through in one hour,” Julian said. “The construction has been difficult for us, but we’ll break records again.”

When the Navarrete’s are not working, they love attending basketball tournaments with their youngest child.
