Attractiveness of Bhutan for the development of franchise business

Bhutan is situated in South Asia between Tibet and India. The population of the country is relatively not numerous 827,453 residents including 40.9% of people who live in an urban area. The largest cities are Thimphu (98,676 ppl), Punakha (21,500) and Tsirang (18,667).

Bhutan's economy is largely dependant on hydropower, agriculture, and forestry, which provide employment for more than half the population. Being the third world country Bhutan follows the philosophy of Gross National Happiness where the success of the development measured by well-being rather than on gross domestic product. The population has free education and free medical care. The main sources of income are tourism, hydroelectric power and agriculture-related businesses.

Franchising is a new notion in the country, however, it is slowly penetrating the market. Especially successful are franchise companies providing tourism-related services such as travel and leisure, food and beverage, coffee, fitness, pest control and cleaning franchises.
