Omar Yunes, one of Mexico’s most successful business leaders in the franchise industry recently attended the Bets Franchisee of the World competition in Florence, Italy and took home the largest prize on offer. The Mexico-based entrepreneur made his name as a franchisee in Mexico for the Sushi Itto brand he made his first investment in at the tender age of just 21 before continuing to establish franchises across the nation throughout the 21st century to bring his total to 13 by the end of December 2016.
Sushi Itto has become a major success for the owners of the brand and its Mexican franchise base, of which Omar Yunes owns around 10 percent of all Mexican franchises; after making his initial investment in a franchise in Mexico, Omar Yunes has set out to take the Sushi Itto brand to various parts of Mexico with franchises established in Mexico City, Puebla, and Veracruz.
Although he himself was named the overall winner of the Best Franchisee of the World competition, Omar Yunes was quick to point to the 400 staff members who work in his Sushi Itto franchises across Mexico and the brand itself, which Omar explained had given his franchise the ability to innovate to create successful franchises across Mexico. The work completed by Omar Yunes over the course of his career with Sushi Itto has been recognized at a regional level for a number of years with this latest recognition at the global level seen as a sign of the growing importance of Mexican franchise holders and entrepreneurs on the global stage of world business.
Omar Yunes does not limit himself to simply enjoying his life as an entrepreneur and innovator on a business level, he has also been looking to expand his horizons by continuing his life-long love of soccer in support of Mexican team Pumas de la Unam and the Catalan giants FC Barcelona. As with every well-coached soccer team, Omar Yunes believes clear communication is the key to his work as a successful franchisee who can explain his needs to his employees with ease.
