  3. Greetings! We have just recently secured the Philippine Master Franchise / Exclusive License for Aqua International and scheduled to open our first store in in the Philippines within the first quarter of 2019.

    What is Aqua S? It’s basically an premium ice cream company which started in Australia and specializing in Okinawa style and quality soft serve in 140+ flavors suit to the Asian and Filipino palette and taste. Think of it as a high-end Dairy Queen with unique and signature Asian and Filipino flavors. We believe this endeavor has a great potential to be next J.Co or Coco Fresh in the Philippines. We are actively looking for sub-franchisees who are interested in opening their own store/s and/or securing exclusive areas in the Philippines.
