Aspiring Filipino entrepreneurs might have been hesitant to start owning their dream franchise because the process of applying for and owning one can be confusing. Now, thanks to Easy Franchise, the Philippines’ first go-to tech platform for franchising, the application process can be simplified and made easy for potential franchisees, as the company assists them with applying for, operating, and growing their businesses.
To show its commitment to helping aspiring Filipino entrepreneurs own franchises from halfway across the world, Easy Franchise is bringing back the first and only franchise sale in the Philippines. The annual “Franchise Day” happens on Aug. 28 of every year.
Launched in February 2019, Easy Franchise was founded by Jose Magsaysay, former CEO and co-founder of Potato Corner, the Philippines’ most successful franchise brand, along with serial entrepreneurs RJ Ledesma and Bubbles Lim.
“Our goal is to be every aspiring Filipino entrepreneurs’ Franchise Partner. We do that by taking care of all the day-to-day tasks associated with starting a franchise business so our franchisees can focus on what matters most—building a sustainable business,” said Lim.
Easy Franchise opens doors for OFWs through their Franchise Management service. Their team runs OFW’s franchises for them so that they have additional income streams while staying abroad, helping them develop financial stability and giving them the opportunity to return home to a business.
“Technology has a major impact on closing gaps in a variety of industries, including franchising. We are creating a digital bridge through Easy Franchise that will enable Filipino migrants and OFWs to join in the franchise sector,” said Magsaysay.
Easy Franchise announced that it would launch its Investment Starter Program.
“We have found a new breed of entrepreneurs who are tech-savvy young people who venture into business or franchising, want to learn how to be entrepreneurs at an early age while still pursuing their passion, and we are here to kickstart their entrepreneurial journey,” Ledesma said.
When starting a franchise, aspiring entrepreneurs face many challenges including raising funds for the initial investment and for the ongoing expenses. The Easy Franchise Funding Service also offers non-collateral franchising loans at lower interest rates. The company also offers free advice on how best to use the money so it will have maximum impact on the bottom line from day one.
Franchise Day 8.28 is an annual online event bringing together various local and international brands to become the one-stop shop of potential franchisees for all their needs.
