Omar Yunes is the owner of multiple franchises of the popular Japanese fast food chain – Sushi Itto. The brand is one of the most well known fast food chains, and a lot of their success can be attributed to the contribution that Omar Yunes has made to the chain. Currently, Omar Yunes owns around ten percent of the total Sushi Itto outlets in the entire country and has brought along numerous innovations to the company, regarding the way the restaurants operate, and also regarding the business strategies that they implement to help the restaurant chain grow and expand. He has been a businessman since a very early age, owing to his first Sushi Itto outlet when he was just at the tender age of 21.
Because of his incredible contribution to the fast food chain, Omar Yunes was awarded by the Best Franchisees of the World Organization. The organization gives awards to franchise owners from around the globe. Omar Yunes was the recipient of the highest grade of awards from this organization, owing to the incredible contribution that he has made, and also because of the standard that he has set for the industry. He won this award in December 2015 and was the only Mexican to be nominated for this prestigious award.
The people who are nominated for these awards are nominated on a global scale, using the highest industry standards. The franchise owners are scored based on their individual contribution, and not of the company as a whole. This prevents large companies from dominating the awards ceremonies and helps them focus on the efforts of the franchise owner alone. Since Omar Yunes has done an incredible amount to make Sushi Itto the company that it is today, he was seen as a perfect fit to be a recipient of this award. Even though he was the winner of something so prestigious, he remained extremely humble even during his acceptance speech. He went on to say that the award was owing to the efforts that all his employees put in to make his franchises the industry leaders that they are today.
