Omar Yune is one of the Most Talented Mexican Franchisees with a love for the hospitality industry. His story as a franchisee began when he was only 21 youths. Unlike many people of his age, he was already building a future for himself. He knew that you don’t have to have much money so as to be successful. With a good plan and the will to work on the small that you have, you will get everywhere.
Therefore, as a young adult, he applied to get a license to work as a franchisee for Sushi Itto, a Japanese food network. If you asked him at the time if he thought he would come to be one of the biggest franchisee of Sushi Itto, he might not have thought he would achieve such success in such a small time. But, you know hard work and motivation will get you everywhere. Courtesy of his influence and contributions of the Sushi Itto network, he is now an award-winning franchisee. He emerged the winner of the Best Franchisee of the World,in the year 2015. He was recognized as the best Franchisee out of the 34 contestants.
His win showed that Mexican brands are taking over the world, especially in the most important industries, like the hospitality industry. No longer are Mexican brands only respected within the regional confines. Today, these brands have beaten the odds to show that they can do as well as other countries, even better.
After winning the award, Yune expressed his pride noting that he would not have won were it not for the support of his team of 400 employees in his 13 Franchise Units. The CEO of the Sushi Itto Network, Benjamin Cancelmo, also commented on the win. He said that the award was a show that his brand had indeed built a reputation for excellent customer service and palatable flavors of their products.
Another person who seemed to be pleased with Omar Yune winning the BFW, is Diego Elizarrarrás. He is the organizer for BFW Mexico and acknowledged his pleasure in seeing Mexico brands go beyond regional borders.
