Local business owner goes from delivery driver to award-winning Domino’s franchise owner
Jay Feavel has come a long way since he began his career as a delivery driver in 1981. The local owner of 17 Domino’s stores, located in Colorado and Wyoming, received the prestigious Gold Franny Award for operational excellence. This is Feavel’s eleventh Gold Franny Award. Feavel bought his first Domino’s in 1989 and continued to expand his business.
The Gold Franny Award is the most prestigious honor given to a Domino’s franchise owner. Feavel won this award as part of an elite group of approximately 700 franchise owners in the United States. Rewards are based on several key factors, including operational audit results, community involvement, store safety and security, and team member morale. The Gold Franny Awards were originally established over 20 years ago by the International Franchise Association and designed to honor excellence among franchise owners.
“I am honored to present this much appreciated award to such a deserving individual,” said Fred Lund, senior vice president of global business development for Domino. “Jay continues to bring an unprecedented work ethic and excellent leadership to the Domino’s brand. This type of leadership takes our brand to the next level and we congratulate him on this great achievement. »
