The entrepreneurial spirit inside of you is restless and you’ve been searching for something to startup for a while. Instead of bouncing from one get-rich-scheme idea to another, have you considered franchising? There’s a whole long list of franchises in Philippines for you to consider.

So we’ve compiled a list of franchises in Philippines and how much they cost, so you can bring a bit of Filipino goodness to your own city or town!

 

How to franchise from the Philippines

Franchising could be an easy option for you to start your own business. Since you’re taking an established brand that’s well-known, all you need to do is follow the formula and watch the profits roll in! Here are some of the costs you need to consider before you buy a franchise.

1. Franchise Fee

It’s basically the start-up fee to buy the name of that franchise. It varies a lot from franchise to franchise. And it can feel like a lot, but it’s there to help offset the cost of helping you systemise the business so it runs like all the other franchises. In return, you’ll get training and the company manual, as well as some advice on marketing and business strategy.

2. Royalty Fee

A business needs some incentive for you to use their brand name. They take a fraction of the profit your business makes. And the way it’s calculated is different from company to company. Some charge a flat rate plus a total percentage of sales. Others just charge a flat rate per quarter or month. If they go with the percentage approach, the usual amount is 5-7 percent.

3. Marketing Fee

Since the franchiser knows how they want to advertise their brand, the marketing fee is there to cover the cost to promote your new business. It ranges from 2 to 5 percent of total sales.

4. License Fee

This might be a bit confusing. The license fee is slightly similar to the franchise fee. The only difference is that the license fee is needed so you can buy the products and materials from the franchiser, as well as any technology needed. It’s usually a flat rate and sometimes listed as a separate cost from the franchise fee.

However, a lot of people bundle both costs together. But don’t be surprised if anyone breaks from the norm to list it as a separate fee.

So with this in mind, here’s our list of franchises in Philippines that you could bring overseas or even in your hometown!
