Food cart franchise – low risk business: A good start up!
by Myla Jasmine Bantog
Wondering what business is perfect for you? Well, why not try your hand in the food cart franchise business? The food cart franchise is one of the most thriving business opportunities in the Philippines. In fact, the Philippines is dubbed as the “franchising hub of Asia,” so you can never go wrong with this kind of business.
You do not have to be rich in order to start with your franchise. In reality, a capital of P30,000 is already enough, even a little too big, to jumpstart your food cart franchising career. Since you do not need a very big amount of money, you will not think twice in investing in this business because it is not that risky as compared to other business deals.
Starting a food cart franchise offers you with a lot of choices. That is why it is important for you to research what kind of foods you want to sell, something that will suit both your lifestyle and your budget. You can do your research through advertisements or inquiry. Once you have narrowed down your choices to a shortlist, you also need to explore the background of the franchisor. Although the capital needed is small, it will not hurt to do some background check on the company you are going to do business with so as not to end up losing the gamble in the end. There are a lot of resources for these in the internet. If you do not find out anything about the franchisor, better be wary and find another business partner instead.
To ensure that you are not dealing with a scammer, you can ask your franchisor to meet up with you. They usually have central offices that you can visit if you want to do business with them. A reputable food cart franchisor will welcome you to their central office and even give you contact details about their other franchisees so that they could get good recommendations. You can get more information about the company from your fellow franchisees.
Aside from those recommendations, it might be a smart move to also ask for professional and legal advice. You can find business consultants regarding food cart franchises who have extensive knowledge in the business of food cart franchising to help you find the best franchise opportunity that will work best for you. Since you will also sign a contract during franchising, getting proper legal guidance will ensure that you are not compromising yourself in the deal and that you understand all the legalities of the agreement you are entering.
