VisMin franchising strategic, Francorp PH leads homegrown brands to thrive
2022 marks the year the franchising industry experienced a remarkable recovery from the pandemic. Businesses survived and thrived during the heightened restrictions by implementing strategic planning and out-of-the-box solutions.
Amid the lockdowns, the Philippines continued to be the seventh largest franchise market in the world, as mentioned in the Franchise Asia Philippines 2022. Franchising became a viable and optimal solution for business growth.
For one, the business, who is the franchisor, and its franchisees collaborated to ensure business continuity. Franchisees adapted to their respective community’s pandemic guidelines, allowing them to address the customer’s needs.
In addition, franchising their businesses out allowed for easier knowledge sharing, mentoring, and scalability between entrepreneur and franchisor.
Some franchisees were even provided with the know-how, equipment, and training that enabled business sustainability whatever the situation, thus making it easy to start the business no matter their location.
This process enabled businesses to achieve expansion regardless of the restrictions. That is how franchisors experienced continued growth and profitability during difficult times.
Exploring franchising in the VisMin areas
Because of franchising’s continued growth, the National Capital Region is not the only melting pot where creative businesses originate. Well-loved brands in the Visayas and Mindanao regions established strong loyalty in their localities as they represent the region’s culture.
VisMin businesses take pride in being part of the local delicacy, experience, and destination that tourists travel to experience. They are part of or may even be the tourist destination themselves.
VisMin brands are also masters in sea-based logistics. They know how to protect items from all elements while allowing them to ship large volumes at lower costs.
These homegrown brands can expand outside their region when given the opportunity. Through one of the leading franchise development and consulting organizations worldwide, Francorp PH, more VisMin businesses can take advantage of their strengths and explore nationwide growth and expansion through the world-renowned strategic planning and consultancy services that Francorp PH provides.
