On December 5, 2015 Omar Yunes of Sushi Itto took first place in the Best Franchisee in the World competition. The competition took place in Florence, Italy where Yunes was recognized for his contributions to his brand. The story of Yunes is an inspiring one, as he became franchisee of the Japanese food chain at the young age of 21, and has worked his way up to now owning 13 franchised units. These restaurants, located in Mexico City, Puebla, and Veracruz, make up roughly 10% of the units Sushi Itto has.

After receiving the award, Yunes beamed with pride about not only his successes, but those of the company as a whole. “I feel very proud. I am only the representative, the reality is that this is a prize of the 400 employees of the 13 units that manage and the brand that has allowed us to innovate”, he said. It is clear that Yunes has a talent for delegating praise and prestige, two factors that contributed to his win at the BFW competition.

The 2015 BFW was attended by representatives from 34 countries, where each franchise was evaluated based on it’s effect on the network as a whole, not necessarily the brand. For example, Yunes was awarded for his contributions in terms of knowledge, savings he implemented, how well he was able to motivate his employees, and overall improvements to the model. The franchisee-franchise relationship is something that Yunes worked tirelessly on to improve, and he was recognized for these efforts at the BFW competition.

Yunes’ success was seen by everyone throughout the organization, including CEO Benjamin Cancelmo. Cancelmo proceeded to acknowledge that the award signifies Sushi Itto is fulfilling it’s duty to offer not only excellent service but flavor and hospitality as well.

If the BFW competition is any indicator, Sushi Itto is in great hands with Omar Yunes. With a recognized leader such as Yunes at the helm, the company should feel great about it’s trajectory in the coming years.
