Aquabest to join PFA’s FAP (Franchise Asia Philippines) 2012

Aquabest, the country’s leading water refilling franchise is proud to announce its support and participation at the upcoming Franchise Asia Phl 2012 to be organized by the Philippine Franchise Association (PFA).

The company is a long time member of PFA and has a nationwide network of around 500 stores and is considered among the leading players in the water franchising industry. This year the company is Franchise Asia’s bronze sponsor. Apart from its usual booth, fun and games and an appearance by Aquabest endorser Gabby Concepcion, the company will unveil its newest franchise concept EntrepRises.

GQWEST CEO, Carson Tan says “In our company we believe that a person must take charge of his or her own destiny, but we also recognize the risks involved in entrepreneurship. That is why we are offering a new franchise concept that offers added value, uniqueness, backed up by the strong brand and record of excellence of our flagship brand Aquabest. With EntrepRises, entrepreneurship becomes less of a gamble and more of a stable and sure fire way to succeed in business.”

At the heart of EntrepRises is the Aquabest 3 in 1 Combostore which is further enhanced by the option to add on a concept to create a complete franchise package. The Combostore 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 the oxygenated alkaline water brand.

Now, the company has sought to further build upon its success by giving franchisees to choose from three add on businesses to further increase their service offerings. All these concepts are designed to complement each other and will address the needs of the communities they are located in. The combination of all these concepts would allow franchisees to benefit from the synergies of these complimentary concepts.

Maid for the Day is a pay per use housekeeping service aimed at yuppies and on the go professionals. Best Mobile Wazzers is the first car wash delivery service that offers car wash on demand. Hemmingbird is an alteration service aimed at servicing clients who would like to have alterations done to their clothes while having them cleaned. The best thing about these add on businesses is they generate added value and income for the franchisee without additional space or manpower investments. This allows the franchisees to maximize and get the most out of their existing resources.

With EntrepRises, GQWEST hopes to raise the bar for the franchising industry in terms of innovation, value, and sustainability. EntrepRises will pioneer a new value- and excellence-driven approach to franchising that will benefit the industry and the public as well.
Franchise Asia Philippines (FAP) 2012 will be held from July 25 – 29 at the SMX Convention Center, Manila.
