The Philippine Franchise Association (PFA) opened the three-day virtual Franchise Asia Philippines (FAPHL) 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,” declares PFA Chairman Richard V. Sanz as he announces the staging of Franchise Asia Philippines (FAPHL) 2021 which goes virtual this September and will kick off with the Virtual Expo on September 8 to 11 followed by the Virtual Conference on September 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,” PFA President Sherill R. Quintana adds.
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.
