How to Franchise: MAXI Mango

Interested to franchise this new food stall known as MAXI Mango? Continue reading below for their franchising details.

About Maxi Mango

The Maxi Mango business was started in December 2017 by spouses Miki Arceo-Velasquez and Ivan Velasquez. If the name Miki Arceo sounds familiar to some, that’s because she was a housemate in ABS-CBN’s TV show Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) Teens Edition, with Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson as batchmates.

The Velasquez husband-and-wife team has been in the soft serve business for several years prior to the launch of Maxi Mango, but it was the Maxi Mango brand that catapulted their business to nationwide scale. At present, their food stall business has branches in at least 12 shopping malls in the country, including SM, Robinsons, Ayala, and Gaisano malls across Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.

As the name suggests, Maxi Mango highlights the taste of sweet, ripe mangoes sourced from Davao, and primarily offers the following four mango-infused products:

  1. Maxi Mango
  2. Mango Float
  3. Mango Shake
  4. Mango Juice Float

Maxi Mango’s products are currently priced as follows:
