The Best Franchisee of the World awards is given out to people who have shown a great amount of dedication to making their franchisees a success. The organization only awards people based on their skill and contribution, and not based on the success of the company as a whole. This gives them a level playing field, so that the franchise owner shines through for his efforts, and that alone. Omar Yunes was the only franchise owner in the entire competition coming from the country of Mexico.
