Francorp’s Franchise Kapihan a Big Hit Among Business Owners
Over 100 business owners nationwide took part in the highly successful FRANCHISE KAPIHAN held October 23 at the Centennial Hall 1 of the Manila Hotel, simultaneously with the Philippine Business Conference 2013, organized by the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI).
The Franchise Kapihan sa Manila Hotel is second of a series conducted by Francorp Philippines this year, after the well-lauded Franchise Kapihan sa Davao held at Blugre Coffeeshop in Davao City last August 10 that attracted some of the most promising homegrown businesses in the South.
Franchise Kapihan is a back-to-back franchise seminar for both aspiring franchisors and potential franchisees organized jointly by Francorp, the world leader in franchising and the franchise consultant behind today’s most successful franchise brands, together with U-Franchise, the Philippine’s biggest franchise sales company that has sold thousands of franchises, and their publication arm, Franchise Talk Magazine.
Given amidst a relaxed setting of a coffee shop, Franchise Kapihan serves as Francorp and U-Franchise’s advocacy to educate Filipino business owners and franchise entrepreneurs on the advantages of franchising, how to know if your business is franchisable or ready to franchise, how it works for both franchisor and franchisee plus practical tips and advice on investing in the right franchise to avoid getting trapped into pseudo or fake franchises that proliferate in the market.
The main speaker is Manuel Antonio V. Siggaoat, Managing Director of Francorp. U-Franchise, likewise, presented some of the most sought after franchises it represents such as The Generics Pharmacy, Potato Corner, Canadian Tourism and Hospitality Institute, 3M Pizza, Crystal Clear, Magic Melt, Chatime, Antz Bread Factory, Mont Albo Massage Hut, Orange Blush Salon, Munsterrific, Beans & Bros, and many more.
The series is conducted in cooperation with the Philippine Franchise Association, Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and PLDT-SME. Noted Philippine Franchise Guru and Francorp Philippines / U-Franchise head, Ms. Ma. Alegria Sibal-Limjoco, CFE, stressed the importance of continuously educating Filipino entrepreneurs about the beauty, benefits, and realities of franchising so that the industry will continue to become stronger as well as be a catalyst in today’s robust Philippine economy. “Educating the Filipino franchise entrepreneurs of the future is part of Francorp’s and U-Franchise’s advocacy and commitment because knowledge is power, and when we empower franchisors and franchisees with the right information, they become more responsible players in the industry,” she adds.
Just recently, one of its clients, Ben Chan of Bench won the prestigious Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award for the Philippines and will compete in Monaco for the World EOY Awards, which Tony Tan Caktiong of Jollibee won in 2003. Cathy Ilacad, President of Posh Nails, was among the recent 10 Agora Awardees honored by the Philippine Marketing Association (PMA). Many of Francorp’s clients in the Philippines have also won recognition in these awards, on top of Philippine Franchise Association’s Franchise Excellence Awards (FEA), the Philippine Retailers Association’s Outstanding Filipino Retailers Awards, Entrepreneur Philippines Magazine’s Entrepreneur 10 Awards, PLDT-SME’s MVP Bossing Awards, just to name a few.
With the success of the Franchise Kapihan, succeeding franchise seminars were conducted on November 14, 1-5pm (How to Franchise Your Business Seminar) and November 16 at 2-5pm (How to Invest in the Right Franchise) at the Franchise Academy, Unit 2807 Jollibee Plaza F. Ortigas Jr. Road, Ortigas Center, Pasig City.
