Here is how much it costs to open a fast food franchise in South Africa?

on

Looking at the biggest food chains in the country, franchising costs range from R500,000 for a brand like Chesa Nyama, to as much as R6 million for a global giant like McDonald’s (all excluding VAT).

Franchise set-up fees often incorporate location, renovation and facility costs, with franchisees then paying an additional “joining” fee and the monthly payments to the brand owner.

Franchise fees can hit as high as R185,000 for a Nando’s franchise or even R540,000 ($45,000) for McDonald’s, while monthly royalty and marketing payments range between a combined 4% and 12% of net income.

The franchise space in South Africa is changing and growing but for entrepreneurs looking for a different challenge, it has become a viable option – and is a great avenue for job creation.
