Top 8 Best Philippine Franchises

Franchise Philippines aims to provide Filipinos on how to start their own franchise business. But, what happens when you don’t know where to start? What franchise should I get? Should I get the help of franchise consultants?

First of all, if you’re starting out, you might want to save most of your money for your franchise fee and other expenses and just do the research as well. This post is about that. We scour the depths of the world just to know what are the 8 most popular Philippine franchise today. Ok, maybe not the whole world… Let’s get started.

8. Water Refill Franchises


The reason why most businesses succeed and others not, is because they focus on the needs of the people. Water, is a basic need. That’s why, water franchises are all over the place and they make money.

Minimum Investment Required: P20,000

Why Is It Profitable: Water is a basic necessity

7. Education & Training Franchises


With millions of graduate students finishing their studies on a quarterly basis and expected to rise even more every year, review centers and educational training schools are a good way to franchise. These franchises never go out of style because you can also target the market such as undergrad students who wants to take vocational courses and preschools for toddlers, which are all profitable when done right. Also to note that there are a lot of people wanting to go to vocational nursing schools and care giving courses. It is a good safe investment.

Minimum Investment Required: 1Million

Why Is It Profitable: Fresh graduates reviewing for licensure exams, vocational courses & preschools.

6. Bakery & Food Store Franchises


Ahh, another necessity. Who doesn’t eat pandesal? Bakery and food store has been with us since our lolo’s and lola. And there’s a reason why there are still there up to now, they are profitable and time and time again, Filipinos just like to eat. Your morning breakfast just wouldn’t be complete without a pandesal or a bread together with a nice cup of coffee.

Minimum Investment Required: P250,000

Why Is It Profitable: Food is a necessity. Pandesal & bread has been a part of Filipino culture.

5. Bar & Cafe Franchises


Bar’s are always been a go getter. If you own a bar, especially a reputable franchise, you can always assume you will get the return of your investment. Now on the other hand, Cafe franchises are good. Filipinos love coffee. Remember the time when Starbucks first opened their shop in the Philippines? It’s a so much hit that even the socialites go starbucks all well dressed just to drink coffee in the late afternoon. Cafes signifies class and your market will be those that can afford to pay more for every cup. Customers plus high buying potential is equals to more profit.

Minimum Investment Required: P250,000

Why Is It Profitable: With popular franchise, return of your investment is almost at 100%

4. Personal Care Franchises


Celebrities took part in the popularity of this franchise industry. Personal care franchise are easy to promote simply because celebrities are already promoting them. If local stars & celebrities are talking about them rampantly, you know that the followers and fans are going to go after that franchise. Also, spas and sauna has become a weekly habit for some people that became a part of their routine.

Minimum Investment Required: P200,000

Why Is It Profitable: Celebrities creating buzz will most likely ease your marketing campaign.

3. Service-Type Franchises


What are these service-type franchises? Car wash franchises, printing shops, and the most popular call centers these are all profitable franchises under this category. We know how many people wants to work in call centers. And call centers are in demand outside the Philippines because of our ability to talk in English clearly. One of the best in Asia. Picture this, Americans paying you, the franchise owner, dollars and you are paying your employees pesos. This is a lucrative franchise indeed.

Minimum Investment Required: P2 Million

Why Is It Profitable: Very lucrative. International and world market possible.

2. Fast Food and Restaurant Franchises


Yet again, we see the proof that Filipinos really love to eat. Who doesn’t know Jollibee, McDonald’s & KFC? Fast food franchises are almost all the time will never fail. Though the return of investment will be somewhat long, the fruit of long term income is certainly obtainable. Jollibee, McDonalds and other fast food franchises maybe a bit too much for people that are starting up, there are other choices as well. Small fast food franchises are out there and you can still earn from them.

Minimum Investment Required: P150,000

Why Is It Profitable: Filipinos love to eat!

1. Food Cart & Kiosk Franchises


When you’re talking about necessity, food cart has it, we are talking about food right? When you’re talking about accessibility, food carts, they are everywhere! Standing and waiting at a small corner of the street or a mall waiting for you to buy a piece of something to eat. When you’re talking about price, food carts can cost at around 20,000. A very small investment. There’s nothing bad to tell about this type of franchise and highly recommended for people who are starting up and even those who already have the money. Be careful though where you buy your franchise and make sure that you’re getting them from reliable companies.

Minimum Investment Required: P20,000

Why Is It Profitable: Filipinos love to eat. Small investment needed. Accessible to anyone.

    – does it need to supply goods everyday by the supplier (owner of the franchising dept)?
    – is the whole amount of the franchise, food included? for one day only, or needs to buy the required food for the nxt day?
    – do I have to get permit from the mall authorities or the franchise owner will do it?
    – in case, how much is the stall fee in the mall? is their any contract to be signed between mall owner and cart owner?
