Yes. Prepare for the following
• Permits – depends on the municipality, ranges from 7k-15k
• Rental Deposits – usually first 3 to 6 months rent
• Initial Training Expenses – in case you want to undergo training outside our main office
• Initial Working Capital – total 6 months projected operating expenses, as your back up during your business’ build up stage within your location, while you are still building your branch in terms of services, concept, quality of food for 6-12 months, then on the following years once strongly and consistently built, you will go on to the next stage called “reaping stage”. This is crucial, as this is usually taken for granted for start up businessmen, to persevere and stay committed on the goal to finish the franchise term and make profit. Though there are other locations, better ones, that don’t really undergo this build up stage for some reasons, since their first few months are a blast already (location and crew are one of the keys).
• Security Bond – Php20,000 (refundable)
• Initial Stocks and Packaging Supplies – Php70,000 good for two weeks or less (depends on sales) for locations within Metro Manila. For Provincials, it is advisable to start with at least 4 weeks stocks, or equivalent to Php140,000 initial stocks, to avoid rush delivery and lessen delivery cost. These initial stocks will turn into sales profit anyway.
