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.

Franchise Fee

Potato Corner’s franchise fee depends on the store outlet. The various franchise package costs are:

School Cart (1.2 meters): P200,000

Standard Cart (1.8 meters): P350,000

Kiosk (2 x 2 meters): P400,000 – P500,000

Kiosk with roof and seating (2 x 2 meters): P500,000 – P600,000

In-Line Store (approx. 4 x 4 meters): P500,000 – P700,000

In-Line Store with Seating (approx. 4 x 4 meters): P800,000 – P1,200,000

Franchise Package Inclusions

The franchising package includes the following:

  • Cart
  • Franchise Fee
  • Small Wares & Equipment
  • Initial Supplies

How to apply for Potato Corner franchise

  1. Prepare and submit the following documents:
  • Letter of intent (including your desired location and reason/s why you want to franchise)
  • Map or sketch of your desired location
  • Photos of your desired location
  • Current resume/curriculum vitae
  • 2 valid (preferably government) IDs

2. The Potato Corner Team will then schedule a meeting with you. There may be a location visit within the same day or at another time.

3. Wait for about a month for the approval process. Once your application is approved, you and your crew will be trained on how to prepare the flavored fries and to ensure these will sell.
