40 years ago my career in Franchising started in Europe. During 1995 I moved to the Philippines and started RK Franchise Consultancy, which became in the meantime the biggest Franchise Consultancy in South East Asia and FIFA Filipino International Franchise Association followed in 2005.
Since I had knowledge of Franchising from my employment with 2 Franchise Companies and one Franchise Consultancy, it was easy for me to form my own concept of Consulting in Franchising.
Franchising in the Philippines and using my initials for my Company name to demonstrate I am behind the brand personally.
Behind RK Franchise Consultancy brand logo is my initial as I give my name to the prestige of the Company and in the case of FIFA it is a circle since it is a global Franchise Consultancy based in the Philippines.
We are most flexible and very much customer-oriented.
Franchisee should always be willing to adapt 100% the system of the Franchisor.
Generally in SE Asia, the Investment payback period is usually 2 years.
Being Innovative helps a lot when you encounter developments for the first time in a particular field.
Having developed the best known Filipino Family Restaurant Gerry’s Grill and the biggest independent Petroleum Company Phoenix Petroleum with 600 stations into Franchise Systems.
Usually, my day starts by talking to my 24 employees.
We are having it right now since we operate in SE Asia, Middle East, Australia, New Zealand.
Still operating in the same markets SE Asia, Middle East and Oceania
Definitely the best way to expand a business is to franchise it out and if you have money to invest, buy a franchise!
