Franchise opportunities abound in PHL for OFWs

Franchise opportunities abound in PHL for OFWs

One of the country’s successful entrepreneurs, Rommel Juan, owner of the Binalot Chain of restaurants, has an advice for overseas Filipino workers (OFWs): take advantage of franchise opportunities in the Philippines.

“Franchising is a good option for OFWs so that they are sure that they are investing their hard earned money on a working and proven business concept,” Juan said in an email to GMA News Online.

“Franchises have a higher percentage of success than start-up concepts. This is because there is already a fixed system, the brand is established and expertise already exists. Franchising is working for yourself but not by yourself,” he added.

Juan was a former president of the Association of Filipino Franchisers, Inc. (AFFI), a non-stock, non-profit national organization of Filipino entrepreneurs and business professionals, duly registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Binalot trademark dispute resolved – Business World

A TRADEMARK tiff between two fastfood chains that serve meals on banana leaves has been settled out of court with the accused copycat agreeing to change its logo, complainant Binalot Fiesta Foods, Inc. said in a statement yesterday.

Rafael L. Chu, the proprietor behind Nid’s Express Binalot, reportedly agreed to forgo the use of the “Binalot” trademark in negotiations held after it lost the case filed with the Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines back in 2007 and was ordered to pay damages.

Mr. Chu then appealed the decision to the state agency’s director-general.

The cases were then referred to mediation,

Binalot Fiesta said.

Mr. Chu could not be immediately reached for comment.

“In exchange for withdrawing the cases, Mr. Chu recognized and agreed to observe [our] exclusive right to the trademark Binalot and to revise the trademarks it applied for registration,” Binalot Fiesta said in its statement.

The agreement has been submitted to the state agency to formalize the deal.

Binalot Fiesta noted that the settlement was accomplished via the recently established alternative dispute resolution center and hailed it

Binalot trademark dispute ends in amicable settlement

By: Abigail L. Ho

Homegrown food chain Binalot Fiesta Foods Inc. has agreed to an amicable settlement of cases it filed against the owner of Nid’s Express Binalot for allegedly using trademarks similar to those of the Binalot brand.

According to Binalot trademark owner Rommel Juan, the Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines’ (Ipophl) Bureau of Legal Affairs had already approved the settlement arrangement between Binalot and Rafael Chu, the owner of Nid’s Express Binalot.

Ipophl director general Ricardo Blancaflor would have to issue a separate approval to deem the case resolved.

Binalot in 2007 filed a trademark infringement case against Chu for allegedly using trademarks that were “confusingly similar to and infringing on the Binalot trademark.”

Ipophl ruled in Binalot’s favor and ordered Chu to pay the former for damages.

My Life as a Binalot Franchisee – By Dean Francis Alfar


Growing up, I never thought that I would be a businessman. The books that surrounded me in childhood pointed to a life of writing—and to a great degree, that was what I pursued. I started with plays and later dabbled in film and television before settling down with fiction. I never thought my brain and temperament was in any way wired beyond the comfort and power of words. But life likes to throw curveballs once in a while.

One evening I went to pick my wife up from her workplace. Arriving early, I was invited to brainstorm with the creative folk at her agency while waiting for her. So I dove in, contributed an idea or two. This ultimately resulted in my being the group’s GM for their Hong Kong arm—a whirlwind that firmly affixed me in the corporate world. From there, a series of fortunate events and great partnerships led me to the realm of the entrepreneur, founding my own company. But through all of this I considered myself an accidental businessman.

Young Businessman Makes His Own Mark In Legazpi

Young Businessman Makes His Own Mark In Legazpi

“I like what I’m doing because it keeps me on my feet,” says the 25 -year old entrepreneur. “Everyday there are new challenges but I have learned to face up to each one with an innovative solution,” he says. Ken is one franchisee who has his own Binalot mascot, who even directs traffic on Legazpi City’s main thoroughfare where Ken’s Binalot branch is located.

Young businessman Ken Clemente chooses the Binalot franchise route to establish his own entrepreneurial venture in Legazspi.

“After college in Manila, I thought Legazpi was boring, but I was wrong,” says Ken Clemente, a young entrepreneur born into a family of business people. Ken’s parents are in the glass and aluminum business, and as with most children these days, Ken wanted to try his hand at something new.

Ken applied for a Binalot franchise last year after seeing its stand at the Franchise Show. “I was looking around for a good business I could bring back to Legazpi and Binalot was it!,” he proudly exclaims. Ken could relate to Binalot’s green ways and the Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives of the company because he himself is active in a civic group, the Jaycees.Continue reading

Ocampo (The Philippine Star),, May 22, 2011

MANILA, Philippines- A local fastfood chain has preserved its right over its brand name through the mediation proceedings conducted by the Intellectual Property Office Philippines (IPOPHL).

Binalot Fiesta Foods Inc. (BFFI), a 14-year-old quick service restaurant with more than 35 branches nationwide, has been recognized by the IPOPHL as the only entity that can use the name “Binalot” in its establishments.

BFFI filed a case against another restaurant named Nid’s Binalot in 2007, but the case had dragged on due to the tedious process of litigation.

Fortunately, the IPOPHL under its new head, Director General Ricardo Blancaflor, has made the referral of cases to the mediation office mandatory, resulting in a virtual fast tracking of the resolution of intellectual property conflicts. This is in line with the vision of IPOPHL in a demystified, development oriented, and democratized IP System by 2020.
