Franchise opportunities in Singapore

Attractiveness of Singapore for the development of franchise business

A city-state Singapore is located in Southeastern Asia. The city with well-developed free-market economy is the focus for Southeastern Asian sea routes and has the busiest port in the world. Singapore is considered to be number one country in the world for ‘Trading across Borders’ due to open market, open port, and favourable conditions for foreign investors. All the mentioned above provide the opportunities for successful development of franchise businesses in the city.

The other benefits for starting a franchise in Singapore are high consumption expenditure of the citizens which has increased for the last 10 years by 130%, and constantly growing number of population as well as a big number of tourists visiting the country all year round.

There are also some drawbacks, for example, Singaporeans are among the highest paid employees in the world (the average monthly net salary is S$3,557) and the franchise fees  are rather high, about S$50,000.

Franchising in Singapore contributes more than S$8 billion to the economy. 500 different types of franchises deal with food, healthcare, education, training, business services and retail.  

The market is saturated with international franchises. United States is the leader of the market but many other successful franchise companies from Malaysia, China and European countries operate in Singapore.
