The Subway restaurant chain has named three franchisees as the recipients of its Franchisee of the Year awards during the company’s recent convention in Orlando, Fla.
This year’s awards were presented to Savana and Jennifer Som of British Columbia, Canada; Jean-Claude Demanne of France; and Ines Banse of Germany.
“The franchisee is the heart and soul of the Subway family. We know that our success depends upon the initiative they take as individuals and their ability to work as a team. We take great pride in the hard work and effort made by the thousands of franchisees throughout the world and in the millions of customers that they serve,” says Don Fertman, director of development.
Selected from among 29 regional finalists from around the globe, and representing Subway restaurants in the U.S. and Canada and the chain’s international developed and emerging markets, the Franchisees of the Year are honored for their accomplishments in adding new stores, building sales and increasing profitability while also achieving excellent store evaluations.
