GQWEST Inc., the country’s premier water franchise company, is proud to announce that its flagship brand Aquabest is among this year’s recipients of Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise Awards.
Aquabest is the largest water refilling store network in the country with more than 700 stores nationwide. This year is set to grow even more with over 10 new franchisees from January to July. A strong factor in the company’s growth is its participation in the 2013 Franchise Asia exhibit organized by the Philippine Franchise Association (PFA). The brand managed to generate a substantial number of inquiries that will contribute significantly towards year end growth.
“Being awarded by this award is both 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 company’s Aquabest 3 in 1 Combostore Concept and Entreprises franchise concept. EntrepRises is the 3 in 1 Combostore enhanced by the option to add on a complementary business concept to create a complete franchise package. The Combostore franchise integrates Aquabest, Laundrybest, and Oxyplus brands into a single business concept. Now, the company has sought to further build upon the combostore concept with complementary businesses to further increase their service offerings. The add-on service is the Best Mobile Wazzers the country’s first carwash delivery. The combination of these concepts are seen to allow franchisees to benefit from the synergies from these complimentary concepts.
