Omar Yunes Brings Glory to Sushi Itto after Being Crowned the BFW 2015 Winner

2015 was the Sushi Itto’s year to shine in the Best Franchisee of the World (BFW) after its franchisee, Mr. Sushi Itto, emerged the overall winner in the competition. The BFW award was handed to Omar in an auspicious ceremony that was hosted in Italy’s Florence City early last year. Portugal, France, and Argentina were among the 34 nations from the world over that sent representatives to the ceremony. Omar’s win was expected, particularly because he had emerged top among the other Mexican franchisees during the BFW Mexico edition.

Why Omar Won

To arrive at the winner, several aspects were put into consideration. First, the winning franchisee had to be influential not just in the brand but also in the entire network. Secondly, the winner was supposed to have contributed towards the growth of the entire network. Thirdly, it was mandatory for the winning franchisee to be excellent in motivating his employees. Lastly, the franchisee’s saving record was examined.

As far as the four requirements were concerned, Omar Yunes was over-qualified for the award. Having joined Sushi Itto as a young professional aged only 21 years, Omar has done tremendously well in growing the Japanese food chain. By the end of 2015, he has employed over 400 people in his 13 franchised units distributed across Mexico.

Omar’s Efforts Praised

Diego Elizarrarras was among the organizers of BFW Mexico. Commenting after Omar’s win, Diego was of the opinion that Omar’s ability to create a seamless coordination between the franchisee and the franchise was the key to his success. This, he said, made management easy within the network. Benjamin Cancelmo also joined Diego in congratulating Omar for his win. The CEO of Sushi Itto said that the award was a clear indication of the network’s improved customer service and hospitality. Prendamex was also well represented during the awards, with one of its franchisees, Mr. Ivan Tamer, taking up the second position.
