5 Ways To Promote Wellness in Your Franchise and Increase the Bottomline

Posted on: March 17th, 2016 by Francorp No Comments

By Sam Christopher Lim
SVP for Marketing & Strategy, Francorp Philippines

The working population in the Philippines is facing a huge problem: there is now a segment of the working population called Generation O (Overweight, Overworked and Overstressed). This is partly due to employees becoming more and more sedentary, chained to their desks for most of their waking hours. And as Coach Chappy of 360 Fitness Club said in The Wellness Report, 2013: “With the automation of almost everything, we simply don’t move as much as we used to.”

Thus, Health risks such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and other chronic illnesses are now affecting even younger employees. With the rise in these common workplace issues comes with higher healthcare costs. All employers understand that prevention is always better than cure. This is why a plan of action needs to take place.

Investing in wellness programs have proven to lower healthcare costs and more importantly, boost overall productivity. Franchise owners know that Wellness programs can help increase employee& franchisee engagement, energy and morale in the workplace. These intangibles greatly affect employee’s buy-in to the company, buy-in to his or her role, and boosts overall productivity, in the end contributing improvements in bottom line.

But the question is where to start? Coach Chappy from 360 Fitness Club gives 5steps that can help you in promoting wellness for your franchise business.

1. Create a survey
Find out what your employees want to experience or learn about. It may be group exercise classes, gym membership discounts, outdoor teambuilding fitness activities or education on nutrition. It is important that before you implement a program, you know what your employees’ interests and needs are.
2. Invest in talks or workshops
Focus on education first before implementing activities. By investing in talks and workshops, you can give your employees a platform to understand the benefits of exercise, nutrition and healthy living, creating awareness and their buy in to programs which will be implemented.

3. Have regular activities
Help your employees build the fitness habit by holding regular activities that are suitable for everyone. By giving them options and different activities, you can target a larger group of people for your wellness program. whether it be a mind body workout like yoga or a more intense circuit training, make sure options are available for them which they can join consistently.
4. Come up with a theme
You might need to have a theme or a goal-oriented program in order to retain employee engagement. If you offer monotonous programs or the same thing every month, you might lose the interest of your employees. Keep them interested in the wellness activities by offering inter-department fitness olympics, fitness relays and biggest loser programs, for example.
5. Monitor progress
Let your employees know that you care about their health and well-being by monitoring their progress and improvement. By tracking their results, they will also be more motivated to get involved in fitness activities and it will also encourage accountability. It is important that you always encourage wellness throughout the workplace so that employees will stay motivated.
When you look after your employees’ health and well-being, you are also taking care of your bottom line. Healthy and happy employees create a more fun, energetic and productive workplace.

Beauty and Success Beyond Measure

Posted on: March 12th, 2016 by Francorp No Comments

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, or so they say, and in today’s society, looking good is often equal to feeling good. But often, one must shell out great amounts of money to pay for the services of high-class salons, slimming centers, and beauty clinics just to get the greatly desired “perfect combination” of style, looks, and body. Or at least, this used to be the norm, until one skin center decided to go beyond.

Enter Beauty and Beyond Facial and Slimming. The brainchild of Ms. Jennifer Weigel Sarmiento, Beauty and Beyond was launched in 2012 in Cebu as the answer to the need for high-quality, professional beauty and body sculpting services that would not cost an arm and a leg. Ms. Sarmiento believes that beauty is a universal aspiration, something that not only the elite rich, but even the middle and lower class desire and more than willing to pay for – a need that Beauty and Beyond intends to fulfill.

To that end, Beauty and Beyond offers an array of face, body, and other services that are intended to match and even surpass those offered by the high-priced salons and slimming centers, at only a fraction of their cost. They offer several types of facials, eyelash extensions, and diamond peels for both face and body. In addition, Beauty and Beyond offers additional services that one would not normally find in a salon such as body sculpting, laser treatments, and massage services, including the popular ventosa or “fire-cupping” service that will soothe and relax tired muscles. Beauty and Beyond is unique in this sense: that it aims to provide clients with a full service experience, ensuring that the client leaves Beauty and Beyond not only looking good, but feeling good as well.

With all these varied treatments and services being offered at significantly cheaper rates all conveniently located at one welcoming place, it should come as no surprise that Beauty and Beyond’s outlet located in Banilad, Cebu City is often packed with customers. From debutantes looking to beautify themselves for their sweet sixteen, to young professionals wanting to spend a little money for some personal pampering, to mothers and even fathers seeking an economic way to relax after a long, hard work week, Beauty and Beyond receives customers from all ends of the socio-economic spectrum.

With the success of its first outlet, Beauty and Beyond continues to stand fast to its vision of aiming to become one of the dominant competitive players in the beauty and personal care industry while at the same time changing the perspective that being beautiful means spending big. With plans to expand throughout Metro Cebu and then the Philippines through the power of franchising, Beauty and Beyond’s mission of providing an excellent beauty experience at reasonable rates to everyone is undoubtedly well on its way to soon becoming accomplished. It will only be a matter of time before the new household name for aesthetic services will be Beauty and Beyond Facial and Slimming, where anyone can become beautiful beyond measure!

A TGB FRANCHISE IS A CUT ABOVE THE REST

Posted on: March 5th, 2016 by Francorp No Comments

Franchise Consultant Philippines | Franchise Success Stories | How to Create a Franchise Business | How to Franchise in the Philippines

Remember the good ole days when the neighbourhood barber shop was the go-to place not just for a haircut, shave, or massage, but also to catch up on the latest news in the area?

THE  GOOD  BARBER (TGB) Shop  relives those  days  and  lives  up  to  its  name.  It is a welcome addition to the personal care and grooming industry because customers are treated to value-for-money services amidst a warm and friendly environment. With interiors designed ala Old Manila and barbers who can be friends, confidantes, and trusted service providers, TGB delivers best quality and premium services at awesome prices. For clients’ added comfort, there is a well-stocked mini library, nice piped-in retro music, and a complete line of head to toe pampering for men.

As part of their corporate social responsibility, TGB patronizes local products and create jobs in the communities where they are present. The shop also uses 100% LED lighting and bio-degradable materials and products.

Because of the clamor of satisfied clients and the good word of mouth about the shop from faithful regulars, TGB is now embarking on franchising to spread its feel-good services all over key locations in Metro Manila and beyond!A TGB franchise is particularly exciting because it taps into a niche market that is traditionally steady and loyal. The business model is unique because customers are offered opportunities to mix and match the services that they will avail of, at comfortable price ranges. The differentiation stems from the enhanced visual and auditory experience clients enjoy when they enter a The Good Barber Shop. And when they leave, the customary greeting “Mabuhay ang Bagong Gupit!” gives them a fine feeling of wanting to come back for another pleasant grooming experience.

Interested franchise partners can email: thegoodbarber@gmail.com.
