MR. Quickie started in 1981 when Mr. Emiliano R. Caruncho III noticed that a number of shoe cobblers was around in a famous mall way back then. He then discovered the need for highly skilled restorers of shoes and bags. At that time, shoe cobblers were found mainly on the streets or near public markets. They were seen lugging around with their box of tools peddling their shoe repair services to people on the streets. They were the only people then who can repair the shoes.
However, Mr. Caruncho’s main concern was trust and craftsmanship on how to meet the customers’ expectations and to surpass it… can a good craftsmanship gain the respect and trust of the people? And can a simple repairman be trustworthy of repairing an expensive item? These were the uncertainties that Mr. Caruncho encountered. The need for skilled shoemakers was evident and the idea was further reinforced by the existence of shoe repair shops around Asia and in Europe.
The notion of a repair shop with trustworthy staff possessing exceptional shoe repair skills working to extend the life of shoes was developed. It was then when Mr. Caruncho established a Shoes and Bags Hospital. The concept was not new but the idea to professionalize the industry was. A repair shop that you can be trusted with a legacy of good craftsmanship in quick and very accessible way that can be found in one place with one name.
He called it MR. QUICKIE.
His determination was tested when his first shop at Harrison Plaza was burned but never his conviction. He took it as a challenge instead and pursued his vision believing it would serve every Filipino. For years, Mr. Quickie has become a household name. For shoes and bag emergency, the name every Filipino knows is Mr. Quickie. His apparent value for the customers and employees is one of the factors of his success. He shared his accomplishments to some of his deserving employees by awarding a number of franchise shops as a reward for loyalty
In 1995, the leadership was entrusted to his son, Mr. Emiliano Caruncho IV. That was when Mr. Quickie aims to expand its number of shop by awarding franchisee to aspiring Filipino entrepreneurs. The number of the shops continued to multiply and helped many entrepreneurs through its franchise program. Today, it has reached more than 200 shops nationwide and still continuously growing.
