BAYO, from the Ilonggo word for “dress”, started out as a made-to-measure dress shop in Makati, but is now sailing as one of the country’s most successful in the apparel industry. The shop which started in 1992 under Lyncor, Inc. reflects a clean and classy image. As the demand for these classic and stylish apparel continued to increase, the company decided to open its doors to franchising in 2001.
A year after they franchised their business, Bayo has been recognized by the Philippine Retailers Association (PRA) as the “2002 Outstanding Filipino Retailer” under the Medium-scale Fashion Category.
By 2003, Bayo has been hailed as the country’s “Most Promising Filipino Franchise of the Year – Retail Category” awarded by the Philippine Franchise Association (PFA). Other awards include PRA’s “2005 Outstanding Filipino Retailer (Apparel-Medium Scale)”, and “Franchise Marketing Campaign Award – Retail Category” by the PFA.
Through the years, Bayo has been providing quality and comfortable world class shopping experience while being devoted to its roots as a truly Filipino brand. Today, Bayo has been a great franchise success story in the Philippines with more than 44 stores nationwide, 11 stores of which are franchised.
