About TGP

The Generics Pharmacy (TGP) has carved a name for itself as one of the leading pharmacy franchises in the Philippines. It has its beginnings as a humble pharmaceutical company that began in 1949. Seeing the need for everyday Filipinos to have access to affordable yet quality medicine, the company pivoted its operations and focused on delivering generic medicines to Filipinos instead.

In 2001, The Generics Pharmacy branched out into retail, opening its very first branch. It quickly realized, though, that one was not enough. With the franchising model, The Generics Pharmacy was able to reach Filipinos in every corner of the country. In 2007, it set out with its first 20 franchises within Metro Manila.

“I was working in a multinational company when my friend invited me to be a franchisee of TGP. The franchise was so affordable, so I decided to invest my life-savings and follow my dreams of having my own business. It was a huge risk for me! I opened my first branch in 2008, and in less than three months I got my ROI (return on investment).”
