ValuePlus Auto Services Philippines, Inc. the franchisor of VPX is delighted to announce that its ValuePlus Auto Service Las Piñas, the first shop established under its build-operate-transfer (BOT) or turnkey franchising model, is now ready for acquisition by interested franchisees.
Under the BOT or turnkey franchising model, ValuePlus Auto Service first builds its VPX shop in a strategic location, operates it for a specific period to establish its customer base, and then transfers or sells it to an interested party.
Mark Saberola, General Manager of VPX, said this franchising model is novel in the auto service industry and will make it easier for people to have their own auto service business. “Building an auto service business from the ground up can be time-consuming, not to mention the challenge of getting people to know that your business exists. We want to alleviate this stress on our franchisees by laying the foundation for them so they can start making profits as soon as possible. We are proud to be a pioneer of this game-changing model in the auto service industry in the country.”
ValuePlus and VPX shops employ certified technicians with prior experience from car dealerships here and abroad.
ValuePlus opened its Las Piñas branch in February 2020 before the pandemic and managed to grow through the crisis thanks to its customer base of retail and corporate clients, creative marketing, and sales strategies.
“We opened ValuePlus Auto Service Las Piñas before the pandemic and managed to grow it amid strict and long lockdowns in Metro Manila, which guarantees our franchisees that the shop has a strong customer base and is self-sustaining,” Saberola added.
ValuePlus Auto Service Las Piñas offers professional auto repair and maintenance services such as preventive maintenance, mechanical and electrical repairs, oil service, computerized wheel alignment, and clutch repairs, among others.

To help its franchisees operate the shop, ValuePlus will provide them with intensive staff training in areas ranging from customer relations management and service advisory to automotive servicing and shop management. ValuePlus will also provide them with management and marketing support by assigning a dedicated zone supervisor where their shop is located and promoting their shop on social media.
ValuePlus Auto Service Las Piñas is located at No. 30 CAA Road, close to commercial and residential areas.
Aside from its Las Piñas branch, ValuePlus will soon open its second BOT or turnkey VPX shop in Pasig, which is also now accepting applications from interested franchisees.
