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.
Together, both Omar Yunes and Ivan Tamer have helped put Mexico on the map. Before, their entrepreneurs and busniessmen were only known on a regional level. However, after the Best Franchisee of The World competition Mexico is gaining the recognition it deserves.
Omar Yunes is amongst the most successful entrepreneurs in the food industry in Mexico and owns 13 Franchise units of a popular Japanese fast food chain named Sushi Itto. Recently, a competition was held in Florence, Italy, Best Franchisee in the World Competition, where Omar Yunes was named as the best franchise. Sushi Itto owns 13 franchise units of the 150 total outlets of Sushi Itto across the United States. In the competition, a various franchise from across the globe participated, and there was a strict policy and parameters on which each and every franchise business and its owners were evaluated to name the award winner. Starting out with just one franchise unit of Suhsi Itto at the young age of 21, Omar Yunes has come a long way to own a total of 13 successfully running franchise units of Sushi Itto spread through Mexico City, Veracruz, and Puebla.
Omar Yunes has had very humble beginnings, and the best part about him is that he has still not forgotten his roots. After winning the award, he did not forget to thank the 400 employees he has employed in the 13 franchise of Sushi Itto he owns today. The competition was based on the parameters such as the value the owner is bringing to the franchise and how well-organized, systematic, clean, and reputed the franchise unit is local. It is often seen that some of the franchise owners do not maintain their units as per the standards that are required to maintain and follow. It at times bring a bad name to the brand itself and instead of adding a business to the company’s overall turnover, it ends up creating a hole in the balance sheet.
In the Best Franchisee of the World Competition, it was also seen as to how the franchise has helped add to the brand value of their respective companies, and how well-reviewed the franchise units are. These are some of the common factors that were considered, and Omar Yunes and his franchise units were clear winners in all the aspects that were evaluated. Even the organizer of the BFW competition, Diego Elizarrarras said that Omar Yunes is a deserving winner because he has proved himself through his success over the years and the love he has gathered for his franchise units and Sushi Itto brand from the public.
