By Starting Franchise on
KFC franchise logoStarting a KFC franchise in India can be one of the best business ventures, as the US based Kentucky Fried Chicken has gained enormous popularity in India over the last decade. Fast food franchises in India usually tend to perform well, and KFC comes from Yum! Brands that have witnessed tremendous success with Pizza Hut and Taco Bell as well!

Here, you can learn more about the steps to open KFC franchise in India, cost and requirements, return on investments for KFC franchise, contact information for Indian franchise units and more. Keep reading!

Why Kentucky Fried Chicken?

Why are you looking to open a KFC restaurant and not any other fast food franchise? Yes, you know it! Yum! is a brand you can really rely on, and KFC needs no introduction to Indian consumers. The craze is multiplying every year, especially among the younger generations; and in a high footfall area, your business can start a-rolling within a quick time!


Investments for KFC Franchise in India: Cost is worthy of returns

Opening a KFC franchise is a huge investment, but the anticipated return is worth it. Yum! brand does not explicitly mention the cost of starting a KFC franchise in India, but we can make gross assumptions as per the US standards. In the United States, one requires to have liquid assets worth 3.6 million US dollars, which is nearly 2 crores in the Indian currency. Nevertheless, India has cheaper lifestyle than the United States, and our experience is that Indian units of international franchises usually cost half of their US counterparts. Going by these gross calculations, we can say that the estimated investment for KFC franchise in India will be somewhat like 1 crore. Apart from that, in the United States, KFC franchise costs include having a net worth of $1,000,000 and a $25,000 franchise fee. Also, there is a 4% royalty fee on actual sales, which is internationally applicable. KFC is thus one of the high capital franchise business opportunities in India, but nonetheless it is worthy of it. As per our assumption, the anticipated return period of capital can be 2 to 3 years.


Starting KFC Restaurants in India: How to open an unit franchise?

There is no other mode of writing to them or contacting them apart from the KFC franchise application form in the prescribed pro forma.

Anand said...

$3.6 Million translates to over 18 Crores. I think there is some error in the estimate.

Kumaraditya Sarkar said...

Thanks Mr. Anand, an erringly omitted zero made a huge difference! :)
Thanks for pointing it out, it is rectified to 20 crores now.
