The economy is doing very well and a lot of new foreign franchises in the Philippines trying to penetrate the market. When one thinks of franchises, the brands that usually come to mind are McDonald’s, Pizza Hut, Shakey’s Pizza and whatnot. There are, of course, local franchises that growing and some people might consider getting a franchise a good deal and a way to make money. Here’s a list to give you an idea what the best franchises you can get here in the Philippines.

dimsum

Dimsum

Those siomai kiosks are almost always full of people. Siomai is very irresistible, plus they’re good for a quick lunch if you’re rushing to somewhere. They’re also a quick snack, or you can put it up somewhere packed with people and you’ll never run out of customers. A good, cheap meal is always welcome. And they’re really good with chili garlic, soy sauce, and calamansi.

french-fries

French fries

Everybody loves french fries. You can even make them on your own. Just slice some potatoes, salt them, then fry. That’s a lot healthier than the packed ones. People also love those classic flavors such as cheese, barbecue, and sour cream. Or if you’re a bit adventurous, why not try to make your own garlic butter?

coffee

Coffee

Coffee is an integral part of someone’s day, and you can take it anytime during the day, so what if someone badly needs a cup of coffee on the way to work? This is where this coffee kiosk or stand comes in. You’ll be providing people with the daily dose of heavenly caffeine and they’ll thank you for it.

rice-toppings

Rice Toppings

Filipinos love their rice, so selling rice in a cup with some meat on top is a great idea. This is perfect for students who need to make their lunch money work, for those rushing to get to work, for those office workers who are also trying to make their lunch money work, or for those cravings that need to be satisfied. The best thing about it is that everybody’s getting amazing home cooked viands, just like how mom makes it.

ice-cream

Ice cream

The heat in the Philippines is most of the time, annoying and unbearable, so what better thing to sell than iced treats? Could be soft-serve ice cream, popsicles, ice candies, halo-halo, or shaved ice with fruit and milk. Nobody would be able to resist that in the soaring temperatures.

donuts

Donuts

Colorful, tasty, sweet, and goes perfectly with coffee. It’s the best thing to reach for at 3pm when you need both a sugar rush and a caffeine booth.

filipino-food

Filipino food

No one makes it better than mom, right? But what if you’re craving some salted eggs and dried fish with some tomatoes? Think Binalot. Part of the appeal of that franchise is you eat on banana leaves! And besides, we’ll eat our own food anywhere, anytime.

You have to remember that you’re not just opening up these branches because you want money. You have to invest in the brand and think of your customers, too.
