International Food Service brands are gazing Indian markets as a profitable investment destination and many among them have already started their operations.
Part two of the report discuss about the franchise business in India. It claims that franchising sector in India is growing at swift pace of 35 -38 per cent per annum. The market size of franchising sector estimated to be US$ 7.2 billion and is expected to reach US$ 20 billion by 2013. There are about 1,200 active franchise concepts in India and over 100,000 franchisees. According to a Franchise India Holding Ltd and CIFTI - FICCI survey, single franchise outlet hires about 10 people on an average. Franchise networks spread across the country are now established with 90 per cent franchisors setting their agreement tenure of more than 3 years and their contract renewal rate has climbed to 80%. Its interesting to note that franchise outlets are growing faster than a company-owned outlet.
Part three of the report gives insights of food service sector in India. It has calculated that size of India's food service sector is $11 billion but organized players enjoy less than 8 per cent of the market share. There are 10 million street vendors in India, of which six million sell ready to eat food. Consumer foodservice value sales grew at a strong 20% in 2007-2008 in India, second only to that of Vietnam and Indonesia.
Part four states that like any other industry, food service sector too requires a support system to thrive. The biggest challenge today for the Franchise Industry is that Government has not recognized it as Small Business facilitator in India unlike the US. The lack of laws and Government policies thereof is therefore an impediment in the growth of franchising which has a huge potential to penetrate in the depth and breadth of the country and also a system for Indian brands to get exported overseas.
There are several other Governmental permissions that would be required before an international master franchise can be granted in India. There are also restrictions on the number of shares a foreign company or person can hold in an Indian company if the joint venture option is taken, and there are restrictions on payment of royalties if it is a technical collaboration agreement between the foreign master franchisor and Indian master franchisee. Payments for Master franchisors are best spread out between lump sum fees, royalties, consultant's fees, and design and engineering fees.
