Animaland was started in the United Stated and was brought here by Mrs. Belinda Dy, while Mrs. Belinda and her daughter were on a vacation back in 2004, saw a store where the customers can make their own stuffed toy. Her daughter then wished that there was a store like that in the Philippines and right then and there, Mrs. Belinda thought of bringing the Animaland Franchise to the Philippines. Within the year, negotiations between Animaland and Mrs. Belinda for a franchise were in the works and in 2005 the first Animaland Franchise was born here in Rockwell Powerplant Mall Makati, Philippines.
Animaland has two franchise products, a cart and typical in-line stores. In-line stores are found in enclosed stores which have their own space within the shopping mall and for those who are wondering what the Animaland products are, here is a short list:
- Stuffed toys
- Animal skins
- Wishing stars
- Birth certificates
- Animal outfits
- Condo boxes for the stuffed toy
Animaland isn’t a seasonal franchise meaning having profit can happen year round as people in the Philippines are naturally gift givers so expect people buying for every occasion and with its low cost of investment, it is surely a no brainer to get this franchise.
