Omar Yunes is truly one of his kind, a diamond in the rough – and Mexico has many diamonds. This entrepreneur knows how to tap into investment like it’s no one’s business; he does it better than most, and that’s an understatement. This Mexican finance investor currently represents none other than Sushi Itto.
In recent news, Yunes was titled “The BFW” or “Best Franchisee in the World” by Mexicano and entrepreneur.com. The competition recently took place in beautiful Florence, Italy. Sushi Itto, the Japanese food chain that Yunes so proudly represents, placed fifth in the competition – and on a global scale. This says everything. In fact, Yunes now holds 13 locations in Mexico, all of which are fully owned and operated by his careful hand; did you know that he took over this business at the mere age of 21? That alone speaks wonders to his testimony and potential overall.
Since Yunes won the competition, it spoke well to Mexico’s food reputation as well. Mexico was honored to have placed a top spot and only hopes for further success in the years to come – all of which Yunes has already promised to deliver. We will see. Also, nearly 10 percent of all Sushi Itto franchises are owned by Yunes; this means that the 13 he owns are only 1/10 of all the locations – not to mention the dozens more that have promised to open in the next three years alone. The future is exciting for this business and for Yunes alone.
Excellent customer service and hospitality collaboration are what Yunes attributes his recent success to: He notes that any team without one or more of its members is an incomplete team, and that is why he has pushed his employees and executive staff to excellence every time; he always knew that they were capable of greater things. He also mentioned that every employee in each branch of business – from the top-tier execs to the company janitors – has a crucial role to play in the safety and professionalism of all daily operations.
The concept for Honey Birdette was eloquently simple in nature. Craft a store that was absolutely drenched in luxury, from the decor to the champagne. Fill the store with the finest in high end lingerie. Bring in a team of highly knowledgeable “Honeys” to wow store visitors and make the shopping experience an absolute delight that couldn’t help but warrant word of mouth references from store visitors. Repeat.
That recipe for success has spurred the growth of Eloise Monaghan’s Honey Birdette boutique concept from a singular location to 55 locations sprinkled throughout Australia. In 2016 Monaghan decided to test out her flawless recipe in the United Kingdom. She opened three locations – in London, Westfield White City and Leeds’ Victoria Gate – and discovered very quickly that her concept not only was well received, but generated a demand for a national rollout of Honey Birdette locations across the UK.
And rollout they will. Those three locations will be joined by 37 more to total 40 Honey Birdette boutiques across the UK by the end of 2018. This is incredible news for what started as one location just 20 years ago. The stores will open in phrases and Phase 1 will include prominent places like Newcastle, Liverpool and Leeds. Locations for Phase 2 and beyond are not yet released. Mums the word, but a recent article also made it look as though other European cities may be on the radar to serve as a Honey Birdette home.
As it grows, Honey Birdette will continue to offer the same top quality lingerie and accessories available globally. It will also continue to have all the glam and lavishness that can be expected from a boutique of its quality. As any Honey can attest, the real treat in visiting a Honey Boutique location comes not only from what you take home in your bag, but from the fun and frills had in the store itself.
The source of Waiākea’s water is in the eastern part of the Mauna Loa volcano. The area is isolated and covered by a rich and biodiverse forest. The company’s Kea’au aquifer is fed by slopes that capture more than 200 inches of pure snow melts and rain water every year. This means that its daily sustainable yield is about 393 million gallons. The water that is provided by the source in a month is sufficient for the whole world in one year. The amount that is bottled by Waiākea is less 0.0001 of 1 percent of what is available. The company currently uses 33 percent renewable energy of which, 25 percent is geothermal.
According to specialtyfood.com, Waiākea’s sustainability measures enabled it to be awarded the CarbonNeutral® certification in September 2012. The company is committed to preserving the Hawaii ecosystem. From the time when it was founded, Waiākea has been working closely with Ecometrica and the CarbonNeutral®, which are renowned consultants in emission. This has helped the firm in mitigating the environmental effects of its products and business to about zero.
The water bottling company currently uses 100 percent recycled polyethylene terephthalate in manufacturing its bottles. This has a great impact on the environment. The 100 percent RPET bottles are better than the regular plastic bottles since they consume 90 percent less water in manufacturing, use about 85 percent less energy to make and mitigate carbon releases by over 90 percent. The RPET used is of high quality, and therefore, the bottles are BPA free.
Waiākea was established in 2012, and it is the pioneer Hawaiian volcanic water company that is committed to health, sustainability, and the charitable initiatives. The firm is devoted to changing the bottled beverage, water, and the entire CPG sector to have triple bottom line business model that consider people and the environment instead of being profit-based. It has decided to set a good example by using highly sustainable measures. For the years that it has been in business, Waiākea has been acknowledged for its outstanding innovation. The company was the most awarded in the beverage industry of North America in 2015.

Some of them include the comeback of the hippo outpost in Dallas zoo which was constructed with amazing mastery.

It cost 14 million dollars for James Dondero and fellow philanthropists who include Eugene McDermott Foundation, Diane and Hal Brierlry, Harold and Simmons Foundation to make the dream of a hippo in America come true. The last hippo of the zoo which was called Papa died in 2001 and the outpost was automatically abandoned. The Dallas Zoo CEO and the president were elated at the construction and presence of the hippo. Thanks to the arrival of the over 3,000-pound hippos, the zoo has already reported a rise in visitors. The mayor, Mr. Mike Rawlings was also happy that the zoo has managed to surpass the capability of many modern zoos.
The Hippo Outpost is housing two hippos Boipelo who is a ten-year-old female weighing 2,395 pounds and Adhama who is a male. The former hippo is from a park in Albuquerque and the latter one is from a Los Angeles Zoo. The animals have been able to settle in the zoo perfectly.
