Toby's Sports, the largest multi-brand sports re­tailer in the Philip­pines, re­cently an­nounced that it has re­ceived the pres­ti­gious Out­stand­ing Filipino Fran­chise Award for Re­tail (Large Scale Cat­e­gory) from the Philip­pine Fran­chise As­so­ci­a­tion ( PFA) at the 2017 Fran­chise Ex­cel­lence Awards held at SMX Con­ven­tion Cen­ter last July 19.

The Fran­chise Ex­cel­lence Awards ( FEA) rec­og­nizes the coun­try's best-man­aged com­pa­nies that serve as bench­marks for all fran­chis­ing busi­nesses based on the fol­low­ing cri­te­ria: growth per­for­mance, brand value and eth­i­cal busi­ness prac­tices. FEA brings the stan­dard of fran­chisors to a higher level, po­si­tion­ing the fran­chis­ers as fore­run­ners in the growth and de­vel­op­ment of the fran­chis­ing sec­tor. FEA is a joint part­ner­ship be­tween the PFA, the Depart­ment of Trade and In­dus­try (DTI), the Philip­pine Chamber of Commerce and In­dus­try (PCCI) and the Philip­pine Re­tail­ers As­so­ci­a­tion (PRA).

"It is def­i­nitely an honor to re­ceive this award, which rec­og­nizes Toby's Sports as the lead­ing and most trusted sports re­tailer in the coun­try," said Toby Clau­dio, pres­i­dent of Quo­rum In­ter­na­tional Inc., the par­ent com­pany of Toby's Sports. "We've been in the fran­chise busi­ness since 1992 with sev­eral suc­cess­ful fran­chisees around the coun­try. Given the num­ber of new malls to open in pro­vin­cial ar­eas, we ex­pect this part of the busi­ness to con­tinue to grow as we part­ner with new fran­chisees who share our pas­sion for sports," he con­cluded.

For his part, PFA pres­i­dent Dr. Alan Escalona said, "The Out­stand­ing Filipino Fran­chise Award is given to Filipino fran­chises that have be­come bench­marks in na­tional mar­ket pen­e­tra­tion through ex­cel­lent fran­chise op­er­a­tions and good gover­nance. Toby's Sports has shown these qual­i­ties, which made it an awardee of the said cat­e­gory. We are con­fi­dent that this award will in­spire Toby's Sports to con­tinue to pur­sue ex­cel­lence and we look for­ward to see greater things from the coun­try's largest sports re­tailer."

Toby's Sports re­cently opened fran­chise stores in Robin­sons Ta­cloban, Xen­tro Mall Cala­pan, SM Trece Mar­tires and Robin­sons Ili­gan, bring­ing its to­tal num­ber of branches to 50.
