The MOU was signed by Ms. Elizabeth Pardo-Orbeta, PFA Chairman (right) and Mr. Cho Dong Min KFA Chairman (left). The MOU signing was part of the activities of the Korean International Franchise Roadshow recently held at the Shangri-la Makati, where a number of Korean franchise brands – all of them KFA members – presented their respective franchise packages to prospective Philippine master franchisees.
