How to Franchise: Potato Corner




When it comes to french fries, there’s one name dubbed as the “Best Flavored Fries” in the country — and that is Potato Corner.

For those interested to franchise a Potato Corner outlet, here’s a quick guide on how to begin your franchising journey.

About Potato Corner

Inspired by the idea of flavored popcorn which was a trend in the early ‘90s, Cinco Corporation launched the first Potato Corner food cart in 1992.

In 1993, it began franchising and launched 74 outlets in only one year. Today, it is offering flavored french fries both locally and globally, with more than 800 branches in the Philippines and abroad, including Indonesia, Thailand, Australia, Panama, and USA.

Currently, 70% of the local outlets are franchise operated.
