As we are aware, India is a fast-growing developing country and people and generally Indians love food.

In metropolitan cities, where people are busy with jobs and fast moving life, they want everything on the go. They prefer things specially food which is ready and yet tasty. And this is the reason that the demand for restaurants in India is rapidly growing especially in cosmopolitan cities. Food franchises are providing the best fulfilment of all the needs which customers urge for.

Food franchises not only give you an option of a restaurant but you can open any kind of eatery like cafes, book reading ventures and clubs. The franchise has a distinct model which gives an option to a businessman to choose their style of hybrid model. The model of the franchise describes the responsibility the owner will have in the future.

Different categories of food model franchise used in India:
  • Single-Unit Franchising: Under this category of model the owner has direct control over the particular restaurant without any interference from the member of the franchise. It is also known as direct franchising. It is a fabulous model for new entrepreneurs to invest their money in it. Example: Pind Balochi, Sagar Ratna
  • Multi-Unit Franchising:  In this, the owner of the franchise gives more than one unit to the entrepreneur as a reward to the responsibility in this model as compared to the single unit model.  Example: Wendy’s and Nirula’s.
  • Area Development Franchising: It is similar to multi-unit but there are a few differences in it reflecting the point of a large unit flying its wings across the region. Example: USA brand in the territory of India.
  • Master Franchising: In which the owner of the restaurant is given the responsibility and power to control the whole territory of a specific area. He /she becomes the master owner of that area. Example: Taco Bell and Hongkong Kitchen.
  • Company-owned Franchising: Last but not least the company starts to construct its value in the market. But innovating their brand. The members of this company work along with the company to accomplish their own identity by creating a brand. Example: Pizza Hut.
