About Generika Drugstore

franchise-logo-generika-druGenerika Drugstore was established in September 2003 to address the need for affordable medicines and promote the use of generic drugs in the context of high prices of medicines in the country. The company is a joint venture composed of the family of Teodoro and Rosalinda Ferrer and the family of Alexandra and Julien Bello.

The first office was in a small 2-bedroom apartment in Goodwill Village, Parañaque City. Progress was slow as none of the stockholders had a medical background, nor were familiar with the local drug industry and the retail business. Gradually, the company built the organization by hiring pharmacists and other key employees; contacted drug wholesalers and suppliers; formulated internal company policies and procedures; opened bank accounts and made first purchases of medicines and related products.

A major milestone came in May 2004 when the first Generika Drugstore outlet was opened in Montillano, Muntinlupa. More company-owned stores followed after. With 16 stores, the company took the next big step into franchising the Generika Drugstore business model in May 2008.

As of February 2013, Generika has a total of 350 stores nationwide.
