30 Popular Philippines Franchises and How Much They Cost

Buying a franchise is a popular way to start a business. In my previous post, I shared with you franchises from Malaysia and Singapore. In this post, I want to share with you 30 popular Philippines Franchises.

Like Malaysia and Singapore, food and cleaning franchises are popular in the Philippines. Philippines franchises are also more affordable compared to U.S. ones.

If you have limited capital to start, Philippines franchises can be an affordable option.

In this post, I will show you the franchises available and how much they cost. By the end of this post, you will be better informed about the Philippines franchises available. This will help you make a better decision on the franchise to buy.

Most of the costs shown in this post are for outlets opened in the Philippines. If you want to open an international outlet, consider sending an inquiry to ask for the cost for that.

Are you ready?

Let’s begin.


I have organized the franchises into their own industry. Feel free to click on the industry your prefer.
