GQWEST Inc., the country’s premier water franchise company, is proud to announce that its flagship brand Aquabest is among the pioneer inductees to Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise Hall of Fame.
Aquabest is the largest water refilling store network in the country with more than 500 stores nationwide. A strong factor in the company’s growth is its participation in the 10th Filipino Franchise Show organized by the Association of Filipino Franchisers Incorporated (AFFI). The brand managed to generate a substantial number of inquiries that will contribute significantly towards year end growth.
“Being inducted into the Hall of Fame is an honor and a validation of the company’s efforts to provide a solid franchise concept to the Filipino entrepreneur. It shows that when people take out an Aquabest franchise they are not just getting their money’s worth but they are also getting added value and excellent service. But we do not intend to rest on our laurels, we intend to further improve our franchise system to prove that we do deserve this title” says Carson Tan CEO of GQWEST.
A sign of this commitment to value and excellence can be seen in the new Aquabest 3 in 1 Combostore Concept. Launched as part of its “Shift Happens” campaign, it franchise integrates three tried, tested, and successful concepts into one. Bundled in the package are GQWEST’s Aquabest, Laundrybest, and Oxyplus brands. Aquabest is the company’s flagship brand, which is shifting to offer structured water. Laundrybest is the company’s Laundromat franchise, while Oxyplus is their oxygenated alkaline water brand. Individually, the brands are all very successful and widely known; together they form a revolutionary and holistic way of looking at the water franchise industry.
Prior to winning the Hall of Fame award, the company has been a multi-year winner in Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise Awards.
