Though the economy of Portugal is a bit beyond European powers, the country looks attractive for investments as it is cheaper for running a business than some European countries.

Tourism contributes greatly to the economy of the country ( in 2017 there were 12.7 million tourist arrivals) and creates a huge consumer market and consequently opportunities for franchise businesses.

Portugal is also good for starting a franchise business as it has a booming hospitality industry and a numerous labor force eager to work. The unemployment in the country is quite high and the wages are low.

The most popular franchise businesses in the country are Food and Beverage, Entertainment, Retail, Automotive, Beauty and Health, and Technology. Among the dominant players in the fast food franchise sector is the USA. There are Burger King, McDonald’s, KFC and others in Portugal.
