About Islands Souvenirs Franchise
The Islands Group traces its history back to the early beginnings of Islands Souvenirs in Cebu in 1992. Breaking the mold of cottage-industry souvenir products, Islands Souvenirs, carved out a niche for itself by providing quality souvenirs that were both practical and creatively designed. It was one of the very first retail companies who made use of design in a country rich in natural beauty through destination-specific merchandise.
Packaged in vibrant shopping environments, it transformed the way that souvenirs were sold completely. Today, Islands Souvenirs has captured a significant share of the souvenir market and has become the most awarded souvenir brand in the Philippines. Its retail operations have expanded to over a hundred stores in various high-traffic tourist locations in the Philippines.
The success of Islands Souvenirs has paved the way for the other subsidiaries of the Islands Group, giving birth to Islands Stay Hotels, Islands Banca Cruises, Islands Pasalubong, Inc., Islands Destinations Mall, Islands & More, Islands Design and Merchandising, and Islands Franchise Corp. It is the first integrated tourism travel services brand in the country.
The Islands Group is all about making travel in the Philippines an unforgettable experience. Plain and simple passion for service, understanding what the market needs, and a drive to deliver great value have shaped the Islands Group into the multi-awarded brand it is today.
The work of the Islands Group is that of demand support — sweeping through the travel business and finding the little nooks and crannies where the needs of travelers have often been overlooked.
