Franchise Talk: Bringing the Feast from Cebu to the World

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

 

 

With a target of reaching 100 stores both locally and internationally, Hukad sa Golden Cowrie has come a long way from its humble beginnings in Cebu in 1982. Kenneth Kokseng, Managing Director of Hukad sa Golden Cowrie shares some insights on what it takes to grow a brand nationally through franchising.

hukad

1. With over 40 restaurants across the Visayas and Mindanao, Hukad sa Golden Cowrie continues to expand at an accelerated pace. What’s the secret to your success?

There is no secret to our success. What brought us to where we are right now is how we value not just our customers but also our partners — every one we work with and who have contributed to the growth of the business from our franchisees, suppliers and staff, among others. We always believe in empowering our team and working together to give customers food that is consistent in quality and service that aims to delight for a dining experience that is memorable each and every time. Most of all, we communicate with and listen by heart. We listen  to the needs of our customers and partners, their needs and recommendations, foster a culture and environment of trust and confidence and treat them as part of our family. We in still a non-traditional way of doing and getting things done in a fast and efficient way.

 

2. The F&B market is very busy with both foreign and local brands expanding, what do you think will make Hukad sa Golden Cowrie successful in Metro Manila?

Golden Cowrie has proven its success in the Visayas and Mindanao. I’m confident that with the dishes and experience we offer combined with excellent customer service, we can be successful in Manila as well. What we offer is something close to the hearts of all the Filipinos.

We have studied the market and in order to be competitive, we are looking at adjusting the menu offerings a bit and developing a marketing strategy that would best target the clientele we are eyeing in Manila. A plus factor for us is having franchisees that share the same set of values and principles that we have.

 

3. You started your franchise expansion in the Visayas & Mindanao, why did you wait until 2016 to expand into Metro Manila?

There is wisdom in increasing one’s fence and sphere of influence slowly but surely. In our case, it took us some time to position Hukad sa Golden Cowrie, Golden Cowrie’s mall-based restaurant, in strategic locations around the Visayas and Mindanao. We learned a lot from the experiences of franchising the business. With the right locations, this year, 2016, is the right time to penetrate the untapped areas of Luzon.

4. We’ve been seeing more and more brands from Cebu and other regions expand through franchising, what are some pieces of advice you can give to entrepreneurs from Visayas & Mindanao who want to expand through franchising?

Choose business partners that share the same set of values, principles and goals with the company. Be the right fit for one another. This way, conflicts that hinder growth can be avoided and both parties can work together and focus on expanding the business.

 

5. You developed and grew the brand in Cebu, what do you think sets the Cebuano customer& market apart and how will this help as you expand?

Each dish has a story to tell. Golden Cowrie started with a simple menu in a charming, breezy eatery made of bamboo and sawali, which are woven split bamboo mats and has evolved into what it is today, 33 years after. Our brand is not just your typical Filipino restaurant. It is reminiscent of Filipino celebrations where family and friends come together to share festive moments. Ask a typical Cebuano where he celebrates birthdays, reunions or any special occasion, or even where to take a balikbayan or a non-Cebuano friend and the answer is always Golden Cowrie. More than a brand it is a restaurant they have grown up with and through the years, and after so many special occasions celebrated with us, our customers, who span many generations, still continue to come back.

Beauty and Success Beyond Measure

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.

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

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

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.

Export the whole store, not just the products

Franchising as a tool to bring homegrown brands to mainstream markets 

By Sherill Quintana, President, Oryspa

Fifteen years ago, I was making candles and practicing aromatherapy. I wanted to stay home for my firstborn while earning my keeps. I didn’t know that those simple chores made me into an accidental entrepreneur.

I never planned to be an entrepreneur. In fact, I was looking forward to going back to development work when my baby can already be partly taken cared of by a nanny. But, I wasn’t able to find an available nanny. So with the help of a sturdy baby car seat, I brought my son with me to bazaars in Ateneo and Miriam College. Then and there, I realized that entrepreneurship is a good fit for mommies.

After 10 years and three more children, the business still had no projections and not much of a system. It had its ups and downs. I ran it like my household. Later on, I learned that most micro entrepreneurs like me were losing opportunities to build an empire and touch more lives by missing the business systems in place.

For several years, we were supplying different spas in the country using virgin coconut oil, grape seed, almond oils as carrier oils. However, without a differentiating factor, my products tended to drown during price wars.

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

In 2008, during one of the mandatory product development sessions with the Department of Trade and Industry, I stumbled upon rice bran. Locally known as “darak,” rice bran is a byproduct of rice production, which is usually fed to hogs. Aside from the high nutrition content of its oil, it has a high smoke point and is highly absorbed by the skin. I already knew then that producing spa products would be a breeze in using rice bran.

Our story is filled with strings of failures and short successes. I was inspired by the fast failure theory in design engineering –the faster you fail, the better chances you have of getting nearer to success. From this theory, ORYSPA (Oryza sativa or rice for the spa like “food for the soul”) was born.

Initially intended to produce spa products, we expanded to personal care. Knowing we are the only rice bran based spa products in the country, we had to expand it quite dramatically to propel the brand and ward off copycats. The first ORYSPA store in 2010 was an instant success that gave us a full ROI in eight months. This paved the way for the much needed confidence and faith by a micro entrepreneur like me back then.

I knew that the business had a good proposition, so I had to plan out and be able to see high volume production, store operations, expansions, branding, systems integration and –later on–franchising. These were concepts that were mostly alien to a micro entrepreneur.

Other businesses in our industry chose direct selling and distribution as a way to expand. ORYSPA chose franchising. How will you be able to sell through franchising? You can ask help from the experts. Be a learner but stand proud of your own knowledge.

I had to make an overhaul, a review of what I had been doing for the past years and why my business style won’t work with current “concept discovery.” So I had to come up with strategies for a business restart.

I reviewed client feedback and listened to consumer pulse regarding which products are in need. Studies show that there is an increasing consciousness about the carcinogenic or cancerous effect of chemical-laden topical products and that alternative organic products prove to be more in demand in sustaining a healthy lifestyle. ORYSPA focused on offering products to address this.

In theory, when you start a business, you have to study what the customers want. This wasn’t the case for our business. We decided to create our market when there seemed to be none. Based on my own needs –a working mother of four who is busy all the time but wants to be pampered in a spa, I discovered that there a lot of other mothers who are in the same predicament. We can somehow induce the market. ORYSPA’s tagline “bringing the spa products into your homes” was created.

As the entrepreneur, you have to create your brand’s DNA and be its own ambassador. Hence, an overhaul of oneself is needed. A myopic leader has no place in building the brand because an entrepreneur has to see what lies beyond him/her. As the cliché goes, “you cannot give what you don’t have.” Take your business, your concept very personally. Stash it inside your heart and let it occupy your mind and your dreams.

I remember Francorp and A.S. Louken’s brand building workshops that I attended. There were only eight participating companies. I knew I was surrounded by established and mainstream brands. But, the founders were emotional in defending their concepts. In fact, some even cried. Developing the vision and mission of your business is a personal exercise as an entrepreneur. This is how you create your brand DNA. No one will be able to exactly copy your concept because it was born from your being. Your business should be a reflection of yourself. The more you truly know your core, the stronger your business concept will be.

The business concept goes into fruition by building a support system. In our case, we started to first hire people for roles I was not able to fulfill. Delegation followed.

When I create a new product concept, the guiding premise is that no one should have already done it exactly as I am imagining it. If there is a norm, challenge yourself to imagine the opposite. In business, it pays to be deviant.

In one of those branding sessions, I was advised to remove the word “Filipino brand” from my vision because the Philippines is not well known for health and wellness products. However, I deem that during the initial brand building process, it’s like I am building a house with one post missing because my motivation lies in being known as a Filipino brand.” We retained “Filipino” in our vision. And we will just evolve as we go along. Changing the culture of your business changes your game.

Franchising as a tool for expansion paved the way for an SME (small/medium entrepreneur) like us. By selling your concept and the whole store, you not only make use of the funds available from franchisees but you also build a team of people ready to propel the brand and realize the vision with you. Make the business also profitable for them and avoid making the relationship self-serving. When you make it profitable for your franchisees, you create a web of people ready to protect your own brand’s interests.

With the ASEAN integration affecting the business landscape, franchising can pave the way for an SME. Our ASEAN neighbors are reviewing the Philippine market potential, experimenting on concepts and bringing their homegrown brands into our country. This means that we can do the same.  It is mandatory for us to level up and compete. Let us show our government and country that to be able to have a strong base of entrepreneurs, we need to be able to build homegrown brands wherein production and employment provision creates wealth locally.

Export the whole store, the whole concept instead of the products alone. This is how we strengthen our Filipino brand in the international playing field.

Slammin’ Mini Burgers + Fries + Dipsand Frittery: The Perfect Franchise Mix

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

Hamburgers and French fries are the perfect combination. The same is true when investing in franchises that offer compatible benefits.

Slammin’ Burgerswhich opened in 2013 was the brainchild ofhusband-and-wife team Patrick and MonetteDy, ayoung couple whose careers began in advertising and branding.  It was an offshoot of the then Slammer Burgers kiosk which first opened in 2004 at Glorietta 4 Food Choices. At that time, at the height of the popularity of fastfood chainsand at the onset of an emerging gourmet burger market, Patrick and Monette were looking into a business venture that could be at the crossroads of all these food evolutions. Thus, they positioned Slammer Burgers as a value-for-money gourmet mini-burger and Belgian Fries joint, the first of its kind in the Philippines.

With their background, it wasn’t hard for them to open a food business successfully. They grew to 12 branches and managed to educate the taste of Filipinos for the “American slider burgers” which was relatively a new thing back then. 12 outlets later as well as a decade of changing lifestyles, sophistication in food tastes, and the internet and mobile phone revolution, it was time for brand evolution. Enter a fresher, hipper, and younger slider burger concept – the Slammin’ Mini Burgers + Fries + Dips.

It takes quite getting used to especially since Filipinos are accustomed to the standard American big burger or those well-loved localburgers. But Slammin’Mini Burgers proved that not all burgers are created equal and size doesn’t matter. At Slammin’, the star of the house are SLIDERS –  double small hamburger patties served in small buns packed with gourmet flavors, premium quality 100% beef chuck, and fun fixins like Belgian fries served in cones andwaffle friesmatched with your favorite dips or toppings — all good for sharing at veryaffordable prices. Wide choices also set this burger joint apart. It offers “sidekick” combos of chicken wings, chicken nuggets, and fish n chips all with finger lickin’ goodness.

Today, Slammin’ ísin the hippest mainstream metro locations –Promenade Greenhills, Trinoma, Market! Market!, Ayala Terraces, Robinsons Magnolia, and more opening soon as it embarks on franchising. For a franchise fee of only P200,000inclusive of a P950,000 investment, you can own a dream business of an established all American burger joint!

And to make it more fun, the Slammin’, put in one more appetizing addition to the equation, by introducing yet another food innovation – FRITTERY – which specializes in 100% Imported Belgian Fries made from European Bintje potatoes. Fritteryfries are quite buzzed about for its premium superior taste especially when topped with signature gourmet dips and dash. It also offers the Brat, a 100% pure meat sausage sandwich that comes with unlimited choice toppings. FRITTERY’s first branch is located in Promenade Greenhills and to open soon near Trinoma Cinema.With a franchise fee of only P150,000 that is part of a P760k turnkey package, more FRITTERY branches will be also be seen all over the metro.

Young adults, students, teenagers, kids, families, barkadas, bloggers even, are all raving about Slammin’ Mini Burgers + Fries + Dipsand Frittery combined the quality food and service which keeps them coming back.The vision of this young company, run by young spirits, to be the No. 1 sliders burger brand in Asia, is a slammin’ victory that is waiting to happen.

A REGIONAL CONFECTIONERY FRANCHISE WITHOUT RIVAL

Back in 1977, it was just a dainty confection made by Trinidad Teves Sagarbarria for family and friends who wanted something indulgent but had no time to make it themselves.  Sans Rival , the Filipinos to-die for  favorite dessert,  and the shop that bears its name has come a long way since.

The growth was slow and easy, like the acacias that line the boulevard of Dumaguete City, just steps  away from the  landmark  home of “Trining”  as she was fondly called.  Perhaps, that’s how institutions are made. In Dumaguete City, Sans Rival Cakes and Pastries is as much an institution as centenarians like Silliman University, St. Paul University, and the boulevard – obligatory stops for visitors, venerable sites for the locals.

From the Food Basket of Mindanao to the World via Franchising

A simple request for good, clean food by the customers of a retail outlet in Bukidnon sparked the opening of a carinderia-style fast food that quickly established an enviable reputation for serving delicious, high quality, and affordable meals.

After six years of successful operations, in 2011, it was renamed as “Roy’s Bistro”. The new concept sought to embark on a mission to cater to the growing needs of families in the area seeking a comfortable venue where pleasant memories are created over plates of really good food. Having upgraded to a fast casual dining style, highlighted by a new and exciting menu, Roy’s Bistro leveled up to more upscale interiors and still retaining the brand of customer service they are famous for. Roy’s Bistro was so positively received that branches in Malaybalay and Cagayan de Oro were opened within a few years. A loyal and ever expanding customer base consisting of students, senior citizens, professionals, business owners, and politicians was just as quickly built up.
