AB Sea Residences Opening soon ecard

Aquabest the country’s premier water refilling franchise is poised to continue its expansion with the opening of its first condominium based water station.

The store located at the SM Sea Residences condominium complex located in Macapagal Avenue is part of the company’s efforts to tap emerging communities. The company intends to open stores in other SMDC developments such as SM Blue Residences.

Condominium complexes with hundreds and even thousands of residential units have been springing up all over Metro Manila thanks to a combination of favorable economic conditions.  Paul Tan, Aquabest’s Marketing Manager says the company expects these stores to drive growth as more and more condominium and housing projects are built. These developments he says would generate new markets that would benefit its existing and potential franchisees.

“The property industry’s robust growth driven by strong inflows of foreign remittances from OFW’s coupled with a growing local market with increased purchasing power because of favorable economic conditions will definitely allow us to grow not just our franchise network but also our consumer base as more and more people move into existing and emerging urban centers” says Tan.

He notes that despite strong competition in the water refilling industry, Aquabest would be able to maintain and even expand its market position as the issue of water safety and quality becomes more and more important. The continued growth in population especially in cities have taxed existing water pipelines giving rise to renewed concerns over water safety and quality in Metro Manila.

“With our ISO certification, cutting edge filtration technology, and regular and stringent store examinations we can assure our consumers that we offer high quality water, especially compared with independent water stations that may not have the same quality standards.”



Aquabest, the country’s leading water refilling franchise is proud to support the upcoming 2014 Filipino Franchise Show.

“We are proud to support Filipino entrepreneurs who are exhibiting their world class concepts through  AFFI’s annual franchise show. This year there will be hundreds of participants each with its own success story that will inspire everyone to go out and start their own business.” says Carson Tan CEO of GQWEST Inc which owns the Aquabest brand.

The company is a long time member of AFFI with around 700 stores and is considered among the leading players in the water franchising industry. This year, the company will continue to highlight its 3 in 1 Combostore concept as well as introduce its new Nanogen technology.

The Combostore franchise combines the Aquabest, Laundrybest, and Oxyplus brands. This allows franchisees of the Combostore to benefit from the expanded target market and synergies resulting from the fusion of the three brands. The concepts offer a faster return period and better margins.

The company is also proud to announce that it would be the  first refilling station franchise to utilize nanotechnology in its filtration process. “Nanogen” which is a Korean developed water filtration system that ensures a high level of water purity while at the same time being the first in the country to offer alkaline pure water.

The 2014 Filipino Franchise Show is presented by the Association of Filipino Franchisers Incorporated (AFFI) the country’s premier franchise group comprised of local franchise concepts. The show runs from October 3 to 5 at the World Trade Center.
