Franchise opportunities in Saudi Arabia

Attractiveness of Saudi Arabia for the development of franchise business

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is the country in the Middle East with the population of about 30.77 million, of which over 82% are urban dwellers. The capital of the country is Riyadh which has the population of 4.3 million. Other significant cities are Jeddah (3.4 million) and Makkah (1.6 million).

The economy of Saudi Arabia is oil-based as the country is one of the leading producers of oil and natural gas. Thus, 45% of its GDP is from the petroleum sector. In order to diversify economy, the government encourages the development of the private sector as well as seeks to attract foreign investments to the country.

Franchising has demonstrated a significant growth in the Middle East region in general and Saudi Arabia in particular. The growing number of international franchise companies are entering the market. The estimations show that the franchise market of Saudi Arabia has a value of $1.3 billion in annual fees and royalties. The expected average growth rate is 12-15 percent per year. All this creates a wide range of franchising opportunities. The leading franchising sectors include restaurant, food and beverage and retail.

Although a large number of franchises already operate in the country, the Saudi Arabian market still presents opportunities for new local and international franchisors as a lot of shopping malls are being constructed or planned.
