The Bistro Group of Restaurants, the same company behind some of the most successful international and local restaurant brands, is offering four out of its 17 restaurant concepts for sub-franchising.
Jean Paul Manuud, COO/President of The Bistro Group said these brands are Bulgogi Brothers, Baker & Cook, Ka Tunying’s Café and Fish & Co.
Manuud said these brands are open to those who are looking to foray into food business.
The Bistro Group would like share to entrepreneurs and businessmen an exciting prospect to share in its success with the sub-franchising of four of its concepts.
The move is part of the company’s growth strategy as it continues to show a strong performance in the local food industry with over 70 restaurants nationwide in over 20 years and aggressively expanding.
The Bistro Group has a diverse portfolio of 17 lucrative global and homegrown dining concepts, which include well-loved mainstays like TGIFridays, Italiannis, Fish & Co., Denny’s, Texas Roadhouse, Baker & Cook, Plank Sourdough Pizza and Village Tavern.
This unique opportunity comes with the company’s extensive experience and expertise in running and managing restaurants.
An existing clientele for all four brands as well as leverage on staffing, training, operational management and marketing efforts are also advantages to sub-franchisees.
“Franchising is an ideal business model to grow a business and expand its reach,” said Manuud.
“When we open the above concepts to franchisees, we share with them our proven formula or recipe for success. We advise them and guide them through the different areas of restaurant operations – from site and design, marketing and menu, culinary and beverage, operations, accounting, supply chain, systems, procedures and best practices,” he explained.
“Franchising is also one of the best ways for aspiring entrepreneurs to become business owners.”
The Bistro Group will open locations in key cities in Metro Manila, as well as North and South Luzon for these four concepts.
