Potato Corner in the Philippines and Overseas
Potato Corner opened its first store in the Philippines in 1992 and a year later, it was opened for franchising. With a growing customer base, the brand became attractive to entrepreneurs due to the secure investment that it offered. As more and more entrepreneurs franchised the food cart brand, Potato Corner turned into a household name and proliferated across the country.
It did not take long for Potato Corner to go overseas. The first store was put up in Indonesia, in 2007. Now, the potato fries brand is present in almost every continent, shaking in 10 other countries that include Canada, USA, Panama, Thailand, Cambodia, Myanmar, Hong Kong, Saudi Arabia, Australia, and Singapore. Potato Corner has also evolved, from the small carts to in-line and dine-in stores, located in malls, schools, hospitals, bus stations, parks, and some tourist destinations in the above-mentioned countries.
