Mexico held it’s own version of the Best Franchisee of The World event just a month before the international annual competition took place. Mexico wanted to find a way to represent its own country by sending the winner of the competition to Florence, Italy for the popular event. Over 34 members from different countries were in attendance including people from as far as Brazil, Hungary, and France.
The main purpose of the international version of Best Franchisee is to reward the franchisees that display exemplary work on a daily basis. They can be judged on a wide range of things such as how they influence the company, what kind of contributions they make, and what kind of savings programs they use. The winner of both the Mexican version of BFW and the international one was none other than Omar Yunes. Omar Yunes is currently the Franchisee of a Japanese style restaurant called Sushi Itto. He first took over at age 21 and has made many successful improvements ever since. One reason why he was recognized was due to the way he changed the relationship that is normally seen between a franchise and a Franchisee. By changing that relationship, he was also able to better manage and control all of his units.
The second finalist from Mexico that made it to the international version of the event was Ivan Tamer. Ivan Tamer serves as Franchisee for Prendamex. This company is a specialized group of Pawnshops located throughout Mexico. Tamer recived recognition for the marketing network he implemented which has positively impacted sales and many companies have already started copying this system.

Pets are being accepted as family members by their owners and so pet owners are becoming more wary of the ingredients that are found in the foods they give their pets. They try to find foods that are as close as possible to the composition of human food. This is according to an article by the Huffington Post.
This is why pet foods, and dog food in particular are coming under criticism for the ingredients used in manufacture. One such brand is Beneful, a product of Nestle Purina PetCare. Beneful ranks as one of the top sellers in the U.S., boasting about 14 million dogs who enjoy the product each year, according to Nielsen.
The criticism leveled against the brand ranges from the use of propylene glycol to the possibility of mycotoxins. These are some of the reasons that saw a class action suit initiated against Nestle Purina PetCare in early 2015. However, close to a third of the plaintiffs have dropped from the case and the allegations keep being changed by the class action lawyers. The company has made it clear that it does not plan to settle the suit.
Nestle Purina have embarked on reformulating the Beneful dry dog foods. In an interview with the Beneful team leading the changes, Vice President of PetCare Nutrition Research, Dr. Janet Jackson, the formulas have been undergoing development for more than two years and had nothing to do with the class action suit. The new formulas will be hitting select outlets starting May 9th.
All Beneful dry dog foods feature new recipes. All except one of the formulas will feature real meat, something that will come as a change. The formula that includes salmon will feature real salmon as an ingredient in 2017 as the company is still sourcing the required amount of salmon to implement the change.
Other changes include the removal of sugar from the list of ingredients and also the removal of propylene glycol. Dr. Jackson stated that the propylene glycol was used in making some of the pieces chewy, something that does seem to love. For dog lovers, the new formulas are worth a look.
