We listed 3 gas stations available for franchising and dealership with their minimum initial investments. Franchising or being a dealer at a gas station can be a bit complicated because the requirements are more stringent, and most of the time, you have 2 options:

  • Company Owned Dealer Operated (CODO) – The dealer’s (you) role is to operate the station and order products from the company. But the company still owns the station.
  • Dealer Owned Dealer Operated (DODO) – This one is the more expensive one because you, as the dealer, will build, operate, and equip the station with products from the company.

Remember that this is just a guide, and you can directly reach out to the company for more updated details.

1. Shell

Minimum initial investment for CODO – average Php 5-8 Million
Minimum initial investment for DODO – average Php 10-12 Million

They have more detailed information on their dealership page.

2. Phoenix

Aside from the investment, you will have to pay a participation fee of Php 50,000 for CODO and Php 35,000 for DODO every year.

These are just 3 of the popular gas stations where you can look for dealerships or franchising opportunities. There are still more, but in order to request more information, you must provide personal information. But if you’re interested, go ahead and give it a try. Good luck!
