How to Franchise: Mang Inasal
The key to most Pinoys’ heart is through the stomach. Who could resist the tempting native-style chicken inasal coupled with unli-rice?
That’s where Mang Inasal holds the key to continuously champion the people’s cravings. Read on to find out relevant information on how to franchise this inasal chicken restaurant.
About Mang Inasal
Started on a 250-square meter space at Robinson’s Mall Carpark-Iloilo in December 2003, Mang Inasal is the brainchild of then 26 year-old Edgar “Injap” Sia. A Hiligaynon for “Mr. Barbeque”, Mang Inasal’s simple concept of authentic fusion of traditional Filipino cuisine captured the taste and appetite of many Filipinos with its trademark “nuot-sarap” grilled chicken and “unlimited” rice.
It became a booming success when it opened in Visayas and Mindanao for franchising beginning 2005 and had its breakthrough in Metro Manila by 2006.
At present, Mang Inasal is a wholly owned company by Jollibee Foods Corporation (JFC), the country’s largest fast food chain. Mang Inasal currently boasts of a store count of more than 500 outlets nationwide.
Franchise Fee and Investment Costs
How much is the franchise fee of Mang Inasal?
A full franchise unit of Mang Inasal requires an investment of P12 Million to P14 Million.
The actual amount is dependent on the approved store type and size. The store model will depend on the location and target market, and the company prefers locations that are in an accessible, high traffic commercial or residential area. Stores should have minimum floor areas of 200-220 square meters.
Upon approval of the franchise application, a set-up fee of P1.2 Million will initially have to be paid by the franchisee. This amount is non-refundable and is VAT exclusive.
There are other costs, though, that will have to be paid by the franchisee every month, such as:
- Royalty or Service Fee (5% of net sales)
- Advertising Fee (2% of net sales)
A Mang Inasal franchise agreement lasts for 7 years and is renewable upon the discretion of the franchisor.
Like any regular business, the estimated Return of Investment (ROI) will depend on several factors such as sales, market potential investment, and the ability of the franchisee to control the store’s operating expenses.
