“In Generika, we collectively had considerable business experience in many industries, but little knowledge and exposure to the intricacies of franchising. This crucial gap was largely filled after consultations and talks with Butz Bartolome and GMB.”
“When we felt Lay Bare was ready for franchising we didn’t have to pick from a list of franchise developers. Mr. Butz Bartolome was our specific choice. Given the thousands of write-ups about him on the net as being “The Franchise Guru” we didn’t have to look very far plus we first met him at the DTI Entrepreneur seminar and he was able to inspire us right away.”
“When you talk about FRANCHISING in the Philippines, Butz Bartolome is the go-to person. He and equally-experienced partner Lyndah make beautiful music together and they inspire clients on how to succeed in business while humbly submitting to the Higher Power.”
“GMB has been pivotal in our international expansion. Their wealth of experience in international franchise coupled that with the “GMB way” they handle their clients is truly priceless. And to me the “GMB way” is all about 1) taking care of the its clients as if it was their own business that they were handling, 2) treating their clients like family, 3) doing anything the client wants no matter absurd the idea or plan may sound and 3) paying close attention to all details. Just this afternoon during my meeting with a family who was looking to get the master franchise for Toronto, Canada, I told them how blessed and what Lyndah and Butz is doing for our company and Potato Corner and told them “kulang na lang partner na sila talaga ng Potato Corner”.
“GMB helped us from 7 to 70 in two years. Butz is really the guy to go to if it comes to Franchising.”
I personally call Mr. Bartolome as FG, short for “Franchise Guru”. Truly indeed, FG will guide and help reach/attain the full potential of your brand/business. What sets FG apart, aside from his unquestionable experience in franchising, is the personalized service that he provides to all of his clients.
“GMB has been the heart & soul of our Franchise Program. For more than a decade now they have the foundation of our franchise system.”
Our success can be attributed to GMB’s support. Without encouragement from GMB, we would not have gone into franchising – which proved that it was the best way to expand.
GMB has been very supportive to our company in terms of improving the services, human resources and facilities. GMB has a heart for its clients and true to their service to the Filipino home grown businesses. GMB is stable, accessible & dependable.
