If you’re an individual or corporation who has the capital, capability, willingness to learn the business, and the right attitude to grow a Phoenix station, we’d like you to be our business partner.
We have 2 types of franchises:
- Company-Owned, Dealer-Operated (CODO) – starting at Php 3.5 million
- Dealer-Owned, Dealer-Operated (DODO) – starting at Php 5 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.
The Brand Reimbursement Fee for CODO stations is Php 550,000. For DODO stations, the fee is waived.
The dealer has to pay the Brand Reimbursement Fee in full for the first five (5) years of dealership for the first station.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Once the site has been approved, corresponding LGU requirements secured, ROA/lease agreement signed, and all required fees paid, construction will take approximately 4 months, and after all permits to operate secured, 1 month. So you can operate a Phoenix station in less than a year!
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.
It is a 5-year contract and renewable for another 5 years based on the dealer’s performance.
