Aquabest, the country’s leading water refilling franchise is proud to its success at the recent 2012 Franchise Asia Philippines.
The company is a long time member of the Philippine Franchise Association and is considered among the leading players in the water franchising industry. Apart from its usual booth, the company also formally introduced its new EntrepRises concept at the show.
The company’s unique and innovative concept managed to generate numerous inquiries from interested franchisees. Apart from inquiries, the Aquabest booth also generated significant public awareness due to its activities like games and an appearance by its endorser Gabby Concepcion. The company sees its new EntrepRises concept as the future of the water refilling industry.
“We see the EntrepRises as comprising a majority of new franchisees in the coming years, because of our belief that the industry is moving away from price driven to value driven competition” says Carson Tan the company’s CEO.
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 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.
Now, the company has sought to further build upon its success by giving franchisees to choose from several complementary businesses to further increase their service offerings. The add-on services include Maid for the Day an on demand housekeeping, Hemmingbird an alterations service, and Best Mobile Wazzers the country’s first carwash delivery. All these concepts are designed to be complementary 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 from these complimentary concepts.
