Russo’s Franchisee Guillermo Medellin Named 2017 ‘Franchisee of the Year’

October 6, 2017

Russo’s Restaurants is pleased to announce seasoned franchise owner Guillermo Medellin as the recipient of its coveted “Franchisee of the Year” award.

Winners are recognized annually at the International Franchise Association’s gala held during its Public Affairs Conference in Washington, D.C. The award is presented by participating franchisors and honors sales achievements, dedication to industry advocacy and community leadership.

“I’m honored to be recognized as Russo’s ‘Franchisee of the Year’,” said Guillermo Medellin, who owns three Russo’s Restaurants franchises. “This award is a testament to the hard work we put in each and every day at all of our restaurants, and the amazing people we have on board to help us do so. I can’t wait to share the news and celebrate this award with my team.”

Medellin, originally from Mexico, worked in the manufacturing industry before moving to the United States. Since purchasing his first Russo’s franchise in 2009, he now operates three Russo’s Restaurants concepts in Texas: The Woodlands, Spring and Houston, and has made an impact in each market through partnerships and regular community giveback.

“Guillermo’s passion makes him an excellent leader here at Russo’s,” said Chef Anthony Russo, the creative culinary genius behind the brand who also serves as its CEO. “He’s willing to put in hard work, learn and help others. And, while we have dozens of incredible franchisees in our network, Guillermo really set himself apart this year – I couldn’t think of someone more deserving of our ‘Franchise of the Year’ award.”
