Jason Smylie, Capriotti's Sandwich Shop's VP, CIO and CMO, received his Certified Franchise Executive designation this week by the Institute of Certified Franchise Executives. Upon completing a comprehensive course of study in franchising offered by the institute, Smylie was honored at The International Franchise Association's annual conference in Las Vegas.
Smylie's association with the sub shop began when he founded and served as COO of Damp Industries Inc., which owned three Capriotti's franchises in the Las Vegas area. Receiving his Bachelor of Science in Computer Science with a Minor in Mathematics from the University of Nevada Las Vegas, Smylie went on to earn his Master in Business Administration from the same university.
"I am honored to be recognized as a CFE, and it is even more meaningful to be able to celebrate this distinction with my friends, family and colleagues in Las Vegas," said Smylie. "I hope to bring the vast knowledge I gained throughout this program back to Capriotti's to better serve in my position, as well as expand the Capriotti's brand."
