About Reyes Barbecue
Mr. Francisco “Frank” Reyes, an alumnus of De La Salle University, established the first Reyes Barbecue Restaurant in 2002. The restaurant business is not really new for Frank. He is a grandson of Engracia Cruz Reyes, the founder and owner of The Aristocrat restaurant. During his teenage years, Frank would work at his Lola’s restaurant.
The idea for a barbecue business came to Frank while he was traveling on his bike around Metro Manila trying out and tasting different barbecues sold on the street. He wanted a restaurant serving his own style of barbecue and decided to match it with a cozy ambiance and reasonably priced dishes, while providing a fast casual dining experience.
Today, there are more than 40 branches of Reyes Barbecue in the Philippines.
When it comes to the menu, one of its popular items is the Boneless Barbecue Chicken with Java rice & peanut sauce and atsara or eggplant salad served on the side. The menu has a wide array of choices, including:
- Appetizers like Grilled Asparagus Pork Wrap & Grilled Chicken Gizzard
- Main dishes like Beef Salpicao Barbecue, Boneless Chicken, & Grilled Salmon/ Tuna Belly
- Snacks like Banana Caramel Ala Mode & Choco Meringue
- Soups and Sides like Sotanghon Soup & Sitaw at Kalabasa
- Noodles like Palabok & Garlic Sotanghon
Franchise Fee & Total Investment
To franchise Reyes Barbecue, you will need to shell out a Franchise Fee of P300,000. This is a one-time payment that will be payable upon signing the franchise agreement.
There is also a continuing Royalty Fee of 5% of Gross Sales once the business is in operation.
The Total Investment can reach around P1,500,000 to P2,500,000 (inclusive of the franchise fee) and will depend on the store size and set up costs. Freestanding or dine-in outlets are required to have a minimum of 30 to 100 sqm.
According to Reyes Barbecue, the Return on Investment (ROI) is around 1 to 2 years but will ultimately depend on several factors such as the franchisee’s diligent day-to-day supervision.
