Some of the top multi-unit franchisees in the country were recently honored at the Multi-Unit Franchising Conference in Las Vegas with the prestigious Most Valuable Performer (MVP) Awards.
Dozens of candidates were nominated and evaluated before a list of twelve winners (including a tie in one category) were selected. A panel of judges looked for franchisees who demonstrated outstanding performance in growing both their organizations and their brands.
To be nominated for the awards, multi-unit franchisees are required to have at least five operating units and been in a franchise system for at least two years.
-The Multi-Brand Leadership Award for achieving brand leadership with multiple brands was a tie between Rent A Center franchisee Shirin Kanji and Dunkin'/Baskin-Robbins franchisee Raj Patel.
