The TOTAL DODO Partnership

A DODO partnership is the operation of a Total service station where the Dealer will co-invest with Total for the development and construction of the service station

There are two ways to become a TOTAL Dealer.

COMPANY OWNED – DEALER OPERATED SCHEME (CODO)

What is a CODO?
A CODO scheme is where TOTAL appoints you as the Dealer of a Total service station, land leased by Total from a third party, and all improvements on the property introduced by Total.

What are the requirements?

You need to initially write a letter to TOTAL signifying your intention to operate or become a TOTAL service station dealer and state your preferred area of operation. The letter should be addressed to:

The Vice President for Retail Total (Philippines) Corporation
7th Floor, 11th Corporate Center 11th Avenue corner Triangle Drive,
North Bonifacio Bonifacio Global City,
1634 Taguig City Philippines

A form will be sent to you for you to fill up and submit, along with the required documents. You may also download the form under www.totaloil.com.ph  Submit all filled out documents to the Total head office, where they will be evaluated.  Should you pass the initial screening, and where a station site is available, you shall be contacted by one of our Area Managers to undergo a Dealer Selection Process.  The final stage of this process is where you will be required to present a Business Plan for your intended site.

How much do I need to invest?
You need to invest a minimum of Php3.5 M for your working capital. The amount may vary depending on the projected volume of the service station.

What is the term of the Dealership Agreement?
Three (3) to Five (5) years, renewable at Total’s discretion subject to your performance as a Dealer.

What are the other requirements?
You are required to take a Dealer Training Course for three (3) weeks to familiarize yourself with service station management and operations. Your Forecourt Service Crew (gasoline attendants), Station Manager and Cashiers are required also to undergo classroom and hands-on training.

DEALER OWNED-DEALER OPERATED SCHEME (DODO)

What is a DODO?
A DODO scheme is where you own (or have a long term leasehold on) a land, and where both Total and you shall have a shared investment on the land, and Total appoints you as Dealer of the Total service station.

What are my investments on the land?

You shall invest on the permanent fixtures such as building, canopy and driveway; and Total (subject to economics and project feasibility) may opt to loan you some equipment such as underground tanks and pumps.  Total signages and decals shall be provided by Total.

How much do I need to invest?
Depending on the size of the property and layout of the station, you may invest some Php 5M, more or less, on your property.  Total will provide you the design, and you may appoint your own contractor to build the station.  All required construction permits shall be secured by your appointed contractor.

What is the term of the Dealership Agreement?
For DODO sites, the normal Dealership period is ten (10) years, renewable at mutually agreed terms and conditions.

What are the other requirements?
As in a CODO scheme, you are required to take a Dealer Training Course for three (3) weeks to familiarize yourself with service station management and operations. Your Forecourt Service Crew (gasoline attendants), Station Manager and Cashiers are required also to undergo classroom and hands-on training.

I have an existing station.  Can I convert it to Total?
If you own the land and all the station improvements, including the equipment, and are operating under an Independent brand, we will assess the site based on potential.  If viable, we will lease the land and improvements from you and introduce our Total brand, and appoint you as a Total Dealer under a DODO scheme.  However, subject to assessment of our Engineering team, you may need to introduce some additional improvements or refurbishment on your site, as may be necessary, before we put our Total brand.
