Be a Phoenix Dealer


  • Why Phoenix?

    Franchising a Phoenix station saves you time and money. With Phoenix, negotiations and approvals are faster because decision-makers are practically a call away. Recovery period of investment is shorter because of our low investment plan offerings and higher per-liter margin, which also grants you bigger earnings in the long run

    Access to Valuable Information
    Associating yourself with Phoenix affords you access to market studies, new developments in the business and extensive advertising and marketing support. All of which costs more outside the Phoenix chain.

    Faster Turnover
    Our average construction period is six months, so you can start earning sooner than later. Our terms are flexible, customized to meet the franchisee’s needs, keeping in mind the bottom line that is the profitability of the business partners: you and Phoenix Petroleum.

    Low Investment, Interest-Earning Deposits
    Our start-up costs are kept at a minimal. Bond and equipment deposits earn interest. Construction costs depend on the agreed design between franchisee and franchisor and can thus go at a significantly lower total.

    Unlimited Business Concepts
    Today’s consumers put much emphasis on convenience (variety, accessibility and affordability), Phoenix Petroleum feeds on this opportunity and provides its franchisees an option to create a community of establishments that will cater to specific and unique needs of the people in the area where the Phoenix station is located. The community becomes an added come-on feature for the Phoenix station.

    Who can qualify as a Phoenix business partner?
    If you’re an individual or corporation who has the capital, capability, willingness to learn the business, and has the right attitude to grow a Phoenix station, we’d like you to be our business partner.

    What types of franchise packages do you have?
    We have 2 types of franchises:

    • Company-Owned, Dealer-Operated (CODO)
    • Dealer-Owned, Dealer-Operated (DODO)


    The Company Owned, Dealer Operated (CODO) Station will cost between Php 2.5 million to Php 5.0 million, and Dealer Owned, Dealer Operated (DODO) Station between Php 4.0 million to Php 5.0 million. These include the brand reimbursement fee, equipment, and initial stock.

    For CODO stations, Phoenix will secure the necessary permits. For DODO, you will secure the permits, but we will assist you in the process.

    How much is the Brand Reimbursement Fee?
    Depending on the estimated prospective volume, the Brand Reimbursement Fee ranges from P350,000 to P550,000 for DODO and P500,000 to P1 million for CODO stations.

    The dealer has to pay the Brand Reimbursement Fee in full amount for the first five (5) years of dealership for the first station. If he becomes a dealer of another station, a 50% discount will be applied on the second station if the performance is exemplary in the first station. If there will be more opportunities for a third to fifth station, 35% discount will be applied if the first two (2) stations exceed expectations in operations and sales.

    What other fees will I be paying?
    A Participation Fee will be paid every year amounting to Php 50,000 for CODO and Php 35,000 for DODO, starting on the first year.

    What are your criteria for selecting a site?
    Currently, we require an area to be at least 800 square meters, with a frontage of at least 30 meters. The site must be located near residential and commercial areas and along high traffic volume highways. Exceptions on lot area requirements may be made based on the potential volume of the site.

    Who will look for the site? What if I don’t have a site yet?
    Our prospects usually recommend sites to us. However, interested franchisees without potential sites may still apply and wait until we find a suitable location for you to operate. Our representative Retail Territory Manager can further discuss the site selection criteria.

    Who will shoulder the construction cost?
    Whoever owns the station shoulders the construction cost, thus for DODO – the dealer, and for CODO – the company. In both cases, we make the customized building plans and design for the station. Only accredited contractors can build the station, but the franchisee may make his recommendation.

    For DODO stations, the dealer undertakes full responsibility of the site construction, since ownership will be of the dealer’s. The mechanical works will be our share. Phoenix Engineers will assist and guide you to make sure that standard specifications are met.

    How soon can I operate my Phoenix station?
    Once the site has been approved, corresponding LGU requirements secured, ROA/lease agreement signed, and all required fees paid, it will take approximately 4 months for a station to be ready to operate, depending on the size.

    Who will provide the manpower for the station?
    You will provide the necessary manpower, but we will give the training for you and your initial hired employees. We require that the dealer/franchisee attend the training for you to be familiar with the operating procedures and rules.

    How long is the Dealership Contract? Is it renewable?
    It is a 5 year contract and renewable for another 5 years based on the dealer’s performance.

    Is there ongoing support from Phoenix even after my station opens?
    Yes! From the opening until operation of your Phoenix station, we help you make your business journey easy.
