Local Carl’s Jr comes out on top
Out of 20 international franchises in the running, the local Carl’s Jr. is number one.
Each year the Carl's Jr. home office gives a "Franchisee of the Year" award to the international franchisee that achieves the greatest results across a range of categories, including sales, sales growth, operational excellence and food safety. The award is chosen from over twenty international franchises competing from many different countries.
This year’s outstanding award is the success story of Carl's Jr. in American Samoa, where Barry Forsgren and his team are commended for their outstanding results in holding and maintaining the Carl's Jr. brand to the high standards.
Local Carl's Jr. President and CEO Barry Forsgren, and his parents Andy Forsgren, Board Chairman and Leone Forsgren, who is a board member acknowledged the award during a brief ceremony at the restaurant located in the family's Laufou Shopping Center.
According to Barry, this award is scored based on sales, sales growth, operational assessments, quality control assessments and food safety. Carl's Jr. American Samoa excelled in all categories and scored at the top with a Platinum Assessment, Forsgren told Samoa News.
