WHY I FRANCHISED A DRUGSTORE BUSINESS? by Karen Pranada

Being a Licensed Pharmacist by profession, it has been my goal to put up my own drugstore because I saw great potential in this kind of business. After being employed for several years, I decided to take the first step in the realization of my goal.

 

Starting a drugstore on my own is one of my options but I know that it would be a daunting experience if I have to start everything alone. The thought of establishing a proven system from scratch and finding reliable suppliers will take a lot of my time, effort and money. Thus, I considered my other option, which is to get a franchised drugstore. I looked into several franchising companies but none appealed to me until I learned from a friend about Gamot Publiko Your Generic Drugstore. After several inquiries and meetings with Gamot Publiko, my first Gamot Publiko drugstore opened in Mogpog, Marinduque in 2010. It was such a fulfilling experience when I opened in Mogpog, Marinduque because the local residents thanked me for opening a drugstore there because they no longer have to travel far to buy their medicines.

Gamot Publiko’s system is easy to learn and understand, thus, store operation is efficient and my business decisions are guided. I have learned a lot in having my own business, from proper handling of inventory, customer service to managing my staff.  I learned too that I have to be hands-on for my business to grow, but still have time for my family and other personal endeavors. All the things that I have learned prepared me to open another branch in Boac, Marinduque. I can say that the best part of my franchise is having a partner that I know will give me business support and advice.
