Pizza favorites Shakey’s, Yellow Cab and Project Pie target growth in various regions.

Thanks to the Italian diaspora, Italian cuisine has gained wide acceptance all over the world. While it’s hard to turn down a plate full of pasta, it’s even much harder to turn down a slice of pizza. (Recently, it’s even been found that pizza is a better motivator at work than monetary incentives!)

Indeed, pizza remains one of the pillars of the food service industry’s global foothold. According to market research firm Euromonitor International, pizza chains now represent nearly 5 percent of global consumer food service sales, and account for US$ 124 billion in global spending. Euromonitor adds that Asian markets exhibit great potential for effective segmentation in the pizza market, even citing homegrown pizza brand Greenwich as a growing force to be reckoned with in the Philippines.

From traditional full-service pizza parlors to artisanal gourmet pizza, here are some international favorites out to take the global pizza market by storm.

Shakey’s: Pizza fun for the whole family
Shakey’s is recognized the world over not just for being the first pizza franchise chain from the United States, but also for having the world’s greatest and most-loved thin crust pizza—with a side of chicken and mojos, to boot.

For the past 62 years, Shakey’s has characterized itself as the pizza brand which celebrates fun times with friends and family. Spacious pizza parlors decked with arcades and play areas make Shakey’s appealing to both adults and children. It is this focus on fun times with the family which has enabled Shakey’s to become the market leader in traditional full-service pizza chains and family-style casual dining.

Even after decades of success, Shakey’s is showing no signs of slowing down. Now with 500 stores worldwide, with established presences in the United States, Japan, the Philippines and Mexico, Shakey’s is now setting its sights for further expansion in Asia, the Middle East, Australia and New Zealand.

Growing the Franchise Industry: The Philippine Experience

image_ growing the franchising industry

I come from a family of retailers and by natural progression ended up working for the family business. Our appliance retailing business was founded in 1948 making us a pioneer in the industry. When I was given the opportunity to manage our family business, I transformed it into a chain of lifestyle stores selling appliances, furniture, and other home accessories.

Majority of Philippine retailing, however, at the time was characterized by traditional shop-houses.

With my background and track record in the retail industry, I was elected President of the Philippine Retailers Association (PRA), which I co-founded with the objective of modernizing Philippine retailing.

This goal of modernizing Philippine retailing was given the stimulus when I championed the hosting of the Asia Pacific Retailers Conference and Expo (APRCE) in 1993. During that time, we invited the best retailers in the world and learned from what they shared that there was still much room for improvement for Philippine retailing.

I am proud to say that because of that pioneering effort to steer a new direction for the Philippine retailing industry, our country now boasts of a sophisticated retail network with 4 Philippine malls included in the top 10 biggest malls in the world.

But not the type to rest on my laurels, I continued to look for other ways to revolutionize the retailing industry in our country. Then, in several conferences I attended abroad, I discovered that as much as 50% of small , yet successful, retail stores are under the franchising model.

This discovery inspired me to promote franchising as a strategy to create thousands of small enterprises and millions of jobs and thus stimulate economic growth. And so in 1995, I co-founded the Philippine Franchise Association (PFA) together with my colleagues in Francorp Philippines, Bing Sibal-Limjoco and Manny Siggaoat.

Before the founding of PFA, there were only 45 franchises in the Philippines. But with the founding of PFA, franchising grew at a rapid rate that today, we already have 1,500 franchise brands – both homegrown and foreign – making us the leading franchise industry in the ASEAN region. How did this happen?

At this point, please allow me to share our strategy in growing the Philippine franchise industry. We are sharing this because we consider Myanmar a brother and we want you to make the most of franchising and make it work for your economy and your people. This is, after all, the vision of the ASEAN Economic Community – to have an ASEAN where there is equitable economic growth for all member nations.

Earlier, I said that the Philippines was second only to Japan in terms of economic growth. Not only that, there was a time when the Philippines was one of the most respected nations in Asia and even the world. In fact, we have produced some of the world’s greatest statesmen just like your very own U Thant.

That was back in my youth and whenever I’m in other countries, I was amazed at how people would go out of their way to speak to me just because I am a Filipino. This was the time when many of our Asian neighbors would go to the Philippines to study and learn from the best schools.

But then we became the sick man of Asia and I dreamt of making my country retrieve its pride and give it a fighting chance in a fast changing world. Then I saw that franchising can help achieve this vision because of its ability to create businesses and jobs; because of its ability to create wealth. But then a dream will continue to remain a dream unless there is a plan.

SUCCESS SECRET #1: CREATE A ROADMAP
The first thing we did was to prepare a 300 plus-page master plan to unleash the power of franchising. This master plan conceptualized a 15-year, 3-phase agenda to grow the food, retail, and service sectors of the industry. The first 5 years was allocated to developing the food sector, followed by the retail sector for another 5 years, and capped by another 5-year growth program for the service sector. Having successfully finished our 15-year plan, we are now on our 2nd cycle of franchise development for the next 15 yrs. I can discuss this with you in some future conference, if you are interested.

 

SUCCESS SECRET #2: LEARN FROM FRANCHISE LEADERS
Yes, we had a plan but we also realized that we need help from those who were more advanced or ahead of us. So we invited the best minds in the industry to give talks during our annual conferences. We organized business missions and visited the best franchise shows in the world to benchmark with and draw inspiration from them.

 

SUCCESS SECRET #3: FORGE INTERNATIONAL LINKAGES
Closely related to this, we forged international linkages to sustain our intentions to learn the latest best practices in global franchising as well as help open opportunities for the international expansion of Philippine franchise brands. We became a member of the World Franchise Council (WFC) and a founding member of the Asia Pacific Franchise Confederation (APFC).

Today, we are a key player in global franchising. We are proud that PFA, represented by myself and Ms. Limjoco, has been elected to be part of the WFC working committee tasked to create programs that will further advance the agenda of global franchising. On top of this, PFA was also appointed to be the Secretariat of APFC as it intensifies its efforts to bring franchising in Asia Pacific to new horizons.

 

SUCCESS SECRET #4: PROFESSIONALIZE THE INDUSTRY
Another important thing we did was to professionalize the industry by bringing in the Certified Franchise Executive (CFE) program to the Philippines in September 2001. The CFE program, which is a mini- MBA course, is the only internationally-recognized development program for franchise executives. We are proud to say that the Philippines has the most number of CFE graduates in Asia. But we are more proud that this program has been instrumental in growing the franchising industry in the Philippines.

This is also the reason why it has been attracting enrollees from other countries in Asia and even the Middle East.
We must have done something right because I, or my fellow founding trustees of PFA like Ms. Limjoco and Mr. Siggaoat, have been invited to represent the Philippines or Asia in various conferences, forums, symposiums across the globe to talk about the Philippine experience in franchising.

 

SUCCESS SECRET #4: INTRODUCE FRANCHISING TO SMALL-MEDIUM ENTERPRISES (SMES)
Lastly, but definitely not the least, a very important key in growing the Philippine franchise industry was introducing franchising to SMEs. We all know that SMEs are the backbone of every economy. There is a concern, however, that most SMEs – especially in less advanced economies – provide very little or even no value added services. Because of this, SMEs remain SMEs forever.

Franchising, however, has the power to upgrade the capacities of SMEs – whether in branding, business methods, marketing and others. Franchising has the capability to make SMEs grow big. Before PFA introduced franchising to SMEs, franchising was a business model reserved for multi-national and large corporations. This is the reason why franchising hardly made a dent in the economy. Things started to change when PFA encouraged SMEs to use franchising as a strategy to grow. Since then, growing big was no longer an impossible dream for SMEs.

We will be more than happy to share in detail with our Myanmar brothers our experience in growing the Philippine franchising sector. Before I end my speech, I would like to share with you an ideal which I have nurtured since my youth. I realize that in order to have a meaningful life, one must seek one’s higher calling. This higher calling for me is to be of service to the most number of people. Franchising, which has created about 140,000 franchise outlets and generated more than a million jobs in our country, has helped fulfill this ideal. It is my sincere wish that this will also happen to your country.

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.

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

With sans rival and silvanas – their house specialties  leading the way, SANS RIVAL CAKES AND PASTRIES has over the years  honed and   perfected their skills in churning delectable homebaked creations. It has stayed true to the founder’s vision of making excellence the cornerstone of their products, using only the best ingredients available for the best taste possible.  Thus, the attention and following it gets.

Today,  a family-owned company  with an expanded cakes and pastry line, a bistro at their ancestral home ,  an outlet at Robinsons Place Dumaguete,   and another forthcoming at Robinsons  Galleria Cebu,  SANS RIVAL CAKES AND PASTRIES  stands ready to take the next step forward….franchising.

The company  is  confident  that SANS RIVAL CAKES AND PASTRIES  has the credibility, track record,  and after thirty eight years , has built up great products  with a strong brand identity and recognition  that  have value in the eyes of the customer.

Meaning “without rival”, the word SANS RIVAL  has  become  what Trinidad Teves Sagarbarria  produced in her lifetime,  a truly unrivalled legacy  of  treasured cakes and  pastries .

PARAS ALTER STATION : A SEAMLESS FRANCHISE OPPORTUNITY

Franchise Consultant Philippines | Franchise Success Stories | Franchise Business Opportunity

In August of 2008, Mr. Ed Paras opened his first RTW and clothes repair shop in Cherry Foodarama Supermarket in Congressional Avenue, Quezon City. Hitting two birds with one stone, he was able to cater to buyers of export/import overruns who immediately wanted to customize their purchases. This begun a strategy that answered the twin needs of the consumer base around the areas near his Cherry Foodarama locations. In 2010, the PARAS ALTER STATION name was incorporated by the ELP Group. Since the positive word of mouth had already spread about his quality workmanship, the  value for money he offers ,and the quick and reliable customer service his staff delivers, there was no way to go but expand.

With a keen eye for spotting opportunities and exercising due diligence and research, this time, Mr. Paras opened outlets in Ever Gotesco, SM, Robinsons, and recently Ayala Malls, the so-called big locations. Now rooting for the upper A, B, C segments, he believed in effective marketing campaigns to create brand name recall especially in mall set-ups. Leafleting, strategic banner positioning, and billboards pushed consumer traffic to his store making his business take off to phenomenal heights.  With 40 stores in Luzon and growing, his sights are now directed to Cebu, Bacolod, and Davao.

His success formula is based on the superior workmanship of his more than a hundred staff who are the most qualified in the garments industry, having had at least 5 years experience in cutting and sewing export quality apparel. Stringent quality control is a must before clothes are released to the customer. The result is a happy and satisfied clientele who return for repeat business.

Paras Alter Station has also thrived in different locations owing to the constantly growing market for alteration and clothes repair amidst the resurging RTW industry.  Because of Mr. Paras’ decades of experience in the retail, wholesale, and manufacture of branded clothes, he is an expert in designer label patterns, cuts, sewing, and repair. He is also a compleat businessman with interests in food, construction, Bayad Center franchises, and agribusiness. He is now preparing his daughters to learn the trade by sending them to business school. His company has a low attrition rate because he treats his workers as family and gives their children extra financial support for their schooling, and weekly bible studies for their spiritual formation.

Through franchising, the Paras Alter Station is poised to conquer the Visayas and Mindanao. By opening more  outlets through franchisees who believe in this fitting opportunity, he makes sure that wherever there are ready to wear clothes shops around, there is a PARAS ALTER STATION nearby to fill every client’s custom fitting needs.
