Franchise fees:

45,000 USD per franchising unit

i. Area Development Fee

The Area Development Fee awards the franchisee exclusive rights to run a franchised outlet in the designated territory. The cost of each agreed outlet is USD 30,000, and as such, should be multiplied by the total number of agreed outlets for the full Area Development Fee to be paid.

For instance, if a total of 5 outlets have been agreed upon for a specific area, then a total of USD 150,000 (USD 30,000 multiplied by 5) will need to be paid by the franchisee.

Payment Schedule
The franchisee would need to pay a deposit of 25 percent of the full Area Development Fee upon signing the Letter of Intent. This deposit is refundable only for any out-of-pocket expenses incurred, such as for market visits and research, legal fees, etc. The remaining 75 percent of the Area Development Fee will then be paid upon signing of the Area Development Agreement.


ii. Individual Unit Franchise Fees

Upon the opening of each outlet, an Individual Unit Franchise Agreement will also be signed, to safeguard the interests of both parties. The validity of each Individual Franchising Agreement is dated from the opening of each individual outlet, and is worth USD 15,000.This fee would also be used to pay part of the business operations cost related to the setting up of a unit in the specific territory.

For instance, if the agreed validity of the Individual Franchising Agreement is dated at 10 years, then the franchisee will need to pay a sum of USD 15,000 as each agreed outlet opens, with each outlet’s franchising rights of 10 years dating from the day the agreement was signed.

Should there be a total of 5 outlets agreed within the specified territory, then there would be 5 different Individual Unit Franchise Agreements.

In the event that the Area Development Agreement is forfeited due to inability to meet the development schedule accordingly, the franchisee will still be able to run the outlets he has set up and possess the rights to the Individual Unit Franchise Agreement for the remaining period of the agreement.

Payment Schedule
The Individual Unit Franchise Fees of 15,000 is to be paid upon signing the Franchise Agreement, and 30 days prior to an outlet’s opening.


Should the franchisee open additional outlets after meeting the amount of outlets agreed upon within the development schedule, he/she can then enjoy preferential rate for the Franchising Fees.
