Franchise Executive Of The Year
Mr Sridhar Mani
Starting out as a Store Manager in 2001, Sridhar managed high volume stores in the Central District. During the company’s drive to expand its store network, he was selected in 2010 for redeployment and tasked to identify and evaluate potential new sites to open 7-Eleven stores. During this time, Sridhar successfully identified 30 new store sites that were subsequently opened as new 7-Eleven stores.
In 2011, after much success, he was redeployed to the Franchise Department as a Franchise Executive. To this day, his role has ever been to ensure the communication between franchisee and franchisor remains open, relevant and effective. As communication continues to remain a pillar in the business dealings with the franchisee partners, Sridhar regularly engages all 36 franchisees under his care, at least on a bi-monthly basis or even weekly.
Challenges encountered in the stores are never left to resolve on its own or to be handled another day. He personally ensures matters are handled and franchisees are always kept abreast of any developments in the resolution of all issues.
