Best Franchisees of the World Awards is an organization that gives out awards to those who excel in the franchising industry. Every year, the organization picks a few nominees for this award, who are selected by a group of esteemed judges who have a good amount of experience in the field. All the candidates are marked based on their skill, the contribution that they have made to the company, and the efficiency of the franchises that they run. The organization does not take the base company into consideration since that would be an unfair playing ground for the people competing in the event. Omar Yunes was seen as the best candidate among all the nominees which was why he was given this award.
