The Philippine Franchise Association opened the three-day virtual Franchise Asia Philippines 2021 Expo on Wednesday with the goal of spurring the industry’s rise from the effects of the pandemic.
“Because there are still business opportunities out there,” said PFA chairman Richard Sanz as he announced the staging of Franchise Asia Philippines 2021 which goes virtual this September and kicks off with the virtual expo on Sept. 8 to 11, followed by the virtual conference on Sept. 21 to 23.
“We shouldn’t let the pandemic keep us from pursuing our dream of becoming our own boss by starting a business via franchising,” said PFA president Sherill Quintana.
With the theme “Igniting Recovery: The Future of Franchising”, this year’s FAPHL is a testament to the resilience of the country’s franchise industry and its drive to weather the storm of the recent economic downturn.
It also seeks to inspire Filipinos to rise up from the current challenges and pivot to where the opportunities lie.
