The much-awaited Franchise Asia Expo 2012 is slated to open to both franchisors and potential franchisees on July 27, 2012 at the SMX Convention Center, and headlining this year’s list of exhibitors is the country’s leading aesthetic beauty clinic for face, body and medical services, Flawless. With studies saying that franchises have a 90%+ success rate during the first year, it’s no wonder why most Filipinos are looking into franchising as an alternative source of income or as a means to grow their wealth. In fact, according to the Philippine Franchise Association (PFA), the franchise industry has experienced exceptional growth from just fifty franchises in the 1990s to over a thousand today. Recognizing that the business model was both robust and profitable, Flawless realized that there was potential to partner with like-minded entrepreneurs, and opened their doors for franchising in 2008. The company’s standing within the industry was further bolstered in 2009 when Flawless was awarded with Outstanding Retailer of the Year Award by the Philippine Retailers’ Association and this assisted in their recruitment of business savvy franchisees.
“We saw the wealth of opportunities offered by franchising not just for ourselves but more importantly, for our patients as a way of expanding our network and making Flawless the most accessible beauty clinic in the country. This led us to develop a franchising plan, anchored on the ideal of helping others succeed. We want all franchise partners to achieve the same success we have experienced in our company-owned clinics, while upholding the high standards of service excellence that we at Flawless have built our nationwide reputation on.
Flawless has invested greatly in our business model and back-office support functions to deliver the finest service for our franchise partners. From day one, Flawless works closely with our new franchise partner to secure their understanding of our franchising terms, select the best clinic location, deliver our robust training to them and their new employees and provide the essential marketing and sales support required to kick-start any new business, shares Rubby Sy, CEO and owner of Flawless.
Home to affordable, world-class aesthetic products and services, and front-lined by a roster of A-list celebrity endorsers, Flawless today boasts more than 30 strategically-located branches, all supervised by licensed doctors and medical professionals that are ready and qualified to diagnose almost any skin and body concern.
There are various benefits one can get by running a Flawless franchise. A brand that has earned such national recognition and the trust of even the most discerning personalities like Lorna Tolentino and Richard Gutierrez, Flawless’ sales alone show one and all how to attain business success through the brand. The franchisees become part of a strong and successful operation that has been giving quality since 2001 and the momentum of Flawless’ strength benefits all new clinic openings, company owned and franchise alike. In addition, Flawless franchisors see advantages of marketing products and services that are backed by years of scientific studies giving minimal risk of business failure as there is a great deal of support provided by the company itself, including significant marketing, sales and clinic location. From day one, franchisees are shown on how they can manage their own facilities, with guidance from Head Office, for maximum return on investment, prior to opening and once operations are off the ground.
Flawless and Franchise Asia Expo
Still hot from the phenomenal success of last year’s Franchise Asia 2011, PFA is now busy organizing what is said to be the latest evolution of the annual Philippine International Franchise Conference and Exp – Franchise Asia Expo 2012. A three-day event that serves as a non-stop, one-stop, shop for franchise investment opportunities. The exposition, touted as “Asia’s biggest franchise event,” intends to carry on the success of past shows and strengthen the country’s position as “The Center or Franchise Development in Asia.” Joining other homegrown and international companies that open franchise investment opportunities for everyone through this annual event, Flawless showcase their exceptional opportunity at Franchise Asia Expo for the second time.
“We have been conservative with our franchising efforts since we are joined the 2009 Franchise Asia Expo as we have been concentrating on building our extensive company clinic network and nurturing the relationships with our small number of existing franchises. We are now in a stronger position with a fantastic brand and therefore felt compelled to open the opportunity again this year,” says Rubby Sy, CEO.
“Developing robust relationships with our Franchisees is an integral part of our business model. In Franchise Asia Expo 2009, we gained a number of potential partners. In fact, we met couple from Manila who opened their first clinic less than a year later. Since then, the couple has seen the benefit and profitability of working with Flawless and are about to open their 4th clinic
- while looking for yet another! This example is testament to our exceptional commitment to our franchisee partnerships and we are receiving yet more inquiries from other franchisees to increase their Flawless network.”
This year’s expo will occupy the entire 10,000 square meters of exhibit space that all of the four halls of the SMX can provide and will showcase a wide array of franchise investment opportunities that covers all fields including established and successful brands and new and promising franchise concepts from here and abroad – and Flawless intends to stand out from the crowd and be the most beautiful investment opportunity on show.
