Franchise opportunities in Netherlands

Attractiveness of Netherlands for the development of franchise business

The Netherlands is a relatively small country with the population of about 17 million with 83% being urban dwellers. The household net adjusted disposable income per capita $27,759 a year is a little smaller than the OECD average of $29,016.

The largest city of the Netherlands is its capital city of Amsterdam (circa 742,000 citizens).  Other large cities are the Hague, Rotterdam, Utrecht and Eindhoven, but none of the cities have the population of more than 1 million.

The Netherlands boast a strong and stable economy, which is vastly attractive for foreign franchisors, because of its transparent and open economic and governmental practices. The Netherland’s GDP is $670.2 billion and growing. Its leading exporting industries are machinery and equipment, chemicals, fuels and foodstuffs.

The franchising market of the Netherlands is well-developed, open and competitive. There are many experienced professionals (bankers, accountants, lawyers) among Netherlanders who can facilitate franchising companies and units in launching and developing their businesses. Franchise opportunities are vast, but the competition is strong as the franchising industry is developed.

Over 715 franchising companies with over 29,500 franchisees are present on the Dutch market. The most actively developing sectors include retail food, hotels, restaurants and business services, but franchising companies are present in almost every sector of economy.
