About Jipangyi

Jipangyi means “cane” in Korean. It is a Korean traditional snack made of ice cream and puffed rice or corn made into a long and thin stick shaped like the letter “J”.

Jay Ong, the owner of Happy Recipe Food Enterprises, was in South Korea when he found out about this popular street food cart: Jipangyi Seoul Cane Ice Cream. He knew that it would be a big hit back home which is why he decided to bring the concept to the Philippines.

Ong, however, faced a challenge: the standard price was around P120 per cone in Singapore, Hong Kong, and South Korea, which would be quite expensive for price-conscious Filipinos. To address the price problem, Ong recalibrated the product and managed to reduce the price down to only P35 per cone.

Jipangyi Seoul Cane Ice Cream prides itself as the “healthier” alternative to usual ice cream cones bought by Filipinos. “It’s a dessert and a snack in one,” Ong explains, saying that having a Jipangyi cone is like eating corn chips and ice cream at the same time.

Franchise Fee & Total Investment

Jipangyi offers two options to interested franchisees:

  1. Kiosk
  2. Cart

Both franchise types have the same price package and inclusions. They only differ in terms of space and portability. The suggested total business space is around 4 sqm.

There is no monthly royalty fee. The Total Franchise Fee Investment for both kiosk and and cart is around PHP 600,000, with a contract term of 3 years with continuation fee.
