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.

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,

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
