Omar Yunes is officially the best franchise in the world after he received the BFW award in 2015. The franchisee of Sushi Itto was recognized for his continued excellence in his job. The award was presented to him at a prestigious event hosted in Florence, Italy, and attended by businesspeople from 34 countries. Some of the world’s greatest economies, such as Portugal, Hungary, and Brazil were represented.
How It Went Down
The BFW award stamped Omar’s exemplary record as a Japanese food chain’s franchise. Having taken up the role at only 21, he went on to show his muscle by opening new franchise units in Puebla, Mexico City, and Veracruz. Omar had 13 franchise units to his name by the end of 2015, and now with this award, more units could well be in the pipeline.
To make BFW more prestigious, the organizers make many considerations before settling on a winner. They mainly focus on the contribution a franchisee makes to the growth of the entire network as opposed to only focusing on a single brand. They assess how informed one is in regards to the network, and whether that knowledge has been adequately utilized to the network’s benefit. How well a franchisee motivates his staff, is also a key consideration, as well as the saving plans put in place.
With Omar Yunes making it that far, it’s a clear indication that he is undoubtedly the leader among all franchisees. These sentiments were also echoed by Diego Elizarrarras, one of the organizers of BFW Mexico. He pointed out that Omar won the award for having revolutionized the franchising-franchisee traditional relationship. He also took note of Omar’s ability to effectively manage 13 different units. On his part, Benjamin Calcelmo of Sushi Itto said that the brand’s unparalleled hospitality in handling its customers had propelled it that far.
