Lay Bare Salon
Lay Bare Waxing Salon takes pride of its working relationship with one of its reliable business partners, BPI Family Savings Bank (BFSB). Expressing gratitude to BFSB, Fiona Hilario, co-owner of Lay Bare says, “BPI is the first bank to extend a loan to us for expansion purposes so we are truly grateful to them.”
Playing a big role in the success of every Filipino negosyante, BFSB commits to further enhance and assist Lay Bare in its business endeavours through its Ka-Negosyo Loan program. Lay Bare can now enjoy the perks and convenience in sustaining their business through BFSB’s wide array of business solutions and products.
BFSB chooses and supports the best and the brightest negosyos through its Ka-Negosyo accreditation program that gives perks and privileges for entrepreneurs to make business easy for them and their potential partners. Accredited franchisees get to take advantage of exclusive no collateral Franchising Loan, preferential exposure for bank marketing initiatives, and short processing time for their franchisees.
BFSB understands that success may come with giving a lot of things up at first, and makes it a point that no matter what, it will come. For Hilario, success was about the choices she made after giving things up for her business, Lay Bare Waxing Salon, and laying her cards on the line with BPI Family Ka-Negosyo.
Giving up her corporate job to set up a business, Hilario, together with her family, put up Lay Bare Waxing Salon and made it grow to become the country’s leading waxing salon today with 37 branches.
“Lay Bare happened by accident. It changed our family’s life. It was a lot to give up at first but I have always believed that success will happen though it will take time,” she shares.
Starting the business in 2006, Hilario and her family maintained an optimistic outlook about the business, worked hard, and was able to strengthen its brand in a span of two years. In 2008, her family decided to expand the business through franchising. With the perfect timing, guidance from experts, and choosing to work with the right partners, Lay Bare was able to set its path into franchising.
Now gearing up for a bigger expansion, Lay Bare takes a step further with its partnership with BFSB through the bank’s Ka-Negosyo Loan Best List program. “BPI has an excellent track record in partnering with SMEs like us and now that we’re ready to expand beyond Metro Manila, we wanted to join the others who have succeeded in their
respective fields by partnering with BPI as well,” shares Hilario.
