My OFW friend have been saving money every month for a business in the Philippines. What he wanted to do was put up a gasoline station. The capital maybe too high for him, but at least going into franchise selling Petron products is.. I guess safer. Also, going into a franchise has advantages such as: easy access to credit and financing, availability of training, availability of products to be sold, brand name, among others.
So, how do we access a Petron Station Dealership?
1. Must meet established capitalization required for a given dealership (this will range between 1 million to 9 million depending on the type of trade and type of station available).
2. Must be able to dedicate most of his time, if not all, in running the station.
3. Must be dynamic and have the aggressiveness and desire not just to operate a service station business but to be the number one in his trading area.
4. Must be perceptive to new ideas and suggestions, pleasing in personality, and have good moral character that will assure the company of loyalty.
5. Must be willing to undergo a five-week Dealer Management course.
6. Must have no past record of criminal case.
7. Must not be operating any existing Petron station or that of any other oil company.
a. Desirable if the spouse and/or any other member of the family can help in the business.
b. Desirable if applicant’s capitalization is backed-up by real estate properties for use as future collateral in expanding the business.
c. Desirable if applicant has previous record of business or employment success.
d. Desirable if applicant has no known vices.
e. Desirable if service station can become his full-time business.
f. Desirable if applicant is a member of any civic group in the community, i.e. Rotary, Lions, Kiwanis, Jaycees, etc
g. Desirable if applicant is a resident of the community where the station applied for is located.
h. Desirable if dealership is single proprietorship.
i. Desirable if applicant is not more than 45 years of age.
