How to Start a Mineski Infinity Franchise in the Philippines
Gaming has always been a favorite pastime for local Pinoys. From the early introduction of online gaming favourites such as Ragnarok Online and Defense of the Ancients (DotA), people would always flock toward the nearest internet café.
For the past two decades, internet cafés provided a haven for online gamers to team up, sit side by side, and join on guilds, quests, and compete with the very best.
If there is one thing we can be proud of, is that the Filipinos are at the heart of competitive gaming. However, with the pricey rental charge of each computer lies the heart of the problem: too expensive to game all day, and too cheap to buy your own computer set.
Luckily for us, Mineski Infinity has provided a cyber café that caters to gamers, both casual and hardcore alike, to foster an environment that supports gaming as a whole. Mineski Infinity is for gamers, by gamers.
With branches sprawling all over the South East Asia, Mineski Infinity has proven itself profitable, and in less than a decade too! Would you not want to be part of it? If you are very much interested in what Mineski Infinity can give you, then keep on reading to know how to franchise Mineski Infinity!
History of Mineski Franchise
Story of Mineski Infinity Franchise
Ronald Robins was just your typical college student at De La Salle University. In the competitive arena of DotA, however, he represented the Philippines. Often than not, he would complain about the poor quality of computer systems at internet cafes, as well as the less than ideal environment.
He attributed this reasons to bad performance during competitions and their resulting losses. For the most part, gaming at internet cafes were sub-par at best.
Which is why he put up his own cyber café that focused on online gaming. Investing in the best of the best computer equipment possible, Ronald and his friends would establish Mineski in 2008, with over 110 seats at a location with 200 sqm of space.
The first outlet of Mineski was a success that subsequent openings around the same area as the first were opened the next year.
As of 2018, a decade after its first opening, Mineski Infinity is the leading cyber café in the Philippines, and in other parts of South East Asia. With 114 branches in the country, 3 branches in Indonesia, 19 branches in Malaysia, and 4 branches in Thailand, no other business has come close to this kind of success in a decade!
Mineski Infinity’s Mission is “to empower games by providing them the best spaces and opportunities for growth”.
