Initially, company SHOULD deliver stocks to you, good for 1 week for Metro Manila Worth Php35,000, 2 weeks for Province in Luzon Area worth Php70,000 or good for 1 month for Visayas and Mindanao or worth Php145,000 is required.
Depends on location’s capacity to give you sales. But based on our existing sales, we could pay rent maximum of Php50,000. That location should be really good.
Training should be at our Las Pinas Office. For locations far from the area especially in Vizayas and Mindanao, you may opt to choose the on-site training, at your location: AirFare, Transpo, food and lodge will be shouldered by you, good for 2 persons. This is way cheaper compared to your expenses when you travel to our main office.
Yes it is mandatory. 8 days. There will be no opening if the 2 crews and owner/ store manager didn’t complete the whole training. We are strict in implementing, incomplete manpower, incomplete training, no opening.
Yes. Prepare for the following
• Permits – depends on the municipality, ranges from 7k-15k
• Rental Deposits – usually first 3 to 6 months rent
• Initial Training Expenses – in case you want to undergo training outside our main office
• Initial Working Capital – total 6 months projected operating expenses, as your back up during your business’ build up stage within your location, while you are still building your branch in terms of services, concept, quality of food for 6-12 months, then on the following years once strongly and consistently built, you will go on to the next stage called “reaping stage”. This is crucial, as this is usually taken for granted for start up businessmen, to persevere and stay committed on the goal to finish the franchise term and make profit. Though there are other locations, better ones, that don’t really undergo this build up stage for some reasons, since their first few months are a blast already (location and crew are one of the keys).
• Security Bond – Php20,000 (refundable)
• Initial Stocks and Packaging Supplies – Php35,000 good for one week or less (depends on sales) for locations within Metro Manila. For Provincials, it is advisable to start with at least 2 to 4 weeks stocks, or equivalent to Php70,000 to Php140,000 initial stocks, to avoid rush delivery and lessen delivery cost. These initial stocks will turn into sales profit anyway.
Original Price will be back anytime without notice. Yes, below price is just our promo price, since we wanted to give opportunity to people like you who wanted to start small, with smaller risk but wants a brand that you could trust and rely, before our official launching.
