Barberitos Franchising, Inc. Names Philip and Martin Kohnen "2012 Franchisees of the Year"

Phil_martin

(Athens, Ga.) Every year, Barberitos Franchising, Inc. recognizes its “Franchisee of the Year.” These are franchisees that go above and beyond their required duties on a regular basis. They perform exceptionally in the store as well as in the community. Barberitos’ philosophy is that each store is locally owned and operated so that it can get involved with its community and give back to those who make the store successful. This past year, Philip and Martin Kohnen were awarded the title of 2012 Franchisee of the Year. Philip and Martin are the proud owners of the Macon, GA and Milledgeville, GA locations. It’s interesting to note how they made it down this path of success. Philip Kohnen is no newcomer to the Barberitos family. He started out working at the Athens Downtown location during college back in 2003-2005. After graduating, Philip took on the General Manager position at Barberitos Eastside in Athens, GA. After being a GM for four years, Phil was presented with the opportunity to take over the Milledgeville store. Philip said, “I learned at an early age to work hard at whatever you do, even if it’s a job that gets you through college.” And so, a job that got him through college has now turned into his career. A customer since the first Barberitos opened, brother Martin decided to leave a career in the corporate world and team up with Philip in the operation. With Philip working in the stores managing operations and Martin working with finances and marketing, they make quite a team. The brothers began operating the Milledgeville, GA store in 2010 and have since opened a second location in Macon, GA in March of 2012. The Barberitos owned by the Kohnens are heavily involved with the local community. They consistently donate to local organizations and events and work especially closely with the national Muscular Dystrophy Association. Both stores are incredibly successful, but they are not stopping now. “We look forward to opening another Barberitos location in Warner Robins, GA in late 2013,” say the Kohnen brothers.
