Franchising and Other Business Opportunities

I know this is kinda off post for my non-business/entrepreneur blog.. but I am doing someone special a favor.. so here goes..

Royalè Business Club International Incorporated is a 100% Filipino owned corporation that was conceived by its founder, Mr. Ricardo S. Castaneda in the first quarter of 2006, with the primary objective of providing quality but affordable health and wellness products, business options, micro-businesses and franchises to Filipinos worldwide.

Royale is endorsed by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo as the Official Micro-Franchise Provider of the Department of Labor and Employment-National Reintegration Center for OFWs.

We are offering three ways for ordinary people like us to start-up our own business:
