Cape Town - The Franchise Co is a franchise management specialist company – owning and managing a diverse range of popular South African brand franchises.

We’ve expanded our corporate divisions to include an investment product, where investors can acquire preference shares in our portfolio of carefully selected franchises – benefitting from the lucrative franchise industry, without being actively involved in the day-to-day running of these businesses.

Who we are:

Over the last decade, we’ve successfully acquired a collection of franchises across a spectrum of sectors, including retail, restaurants, fast food, health & beauty and construction.

Our reputation as franchise management specialists soon resulted in external entrepreneurs and investors approaching us to be part of the success story.

So, what started out as a family business grew to a very lucrative, stable company – enabling us to now open our investment opportunities to the broader public.

By understanding market trends and continuously analysing potential business risks, we’ve built a reputation of being excellent at acquiring ideally located franchises at the best prices – maximising our return – and ensuring our company stability.

Our management team consists of highly skilled, actively involved members with decades of experience in business operations, management, funding and franchising. Their passion and knowledge form the cornerstones of our business.

What we’re offering:

Qualifying investors earn 12.2% annual return (paid monthly) over a five year period, by purchasing preference shares in our portfolio of franchises.

We call this our 61Sixty product – 61% total return over 60 months.

Our franchises generate a steady gross profit of ±39.5% annually. This allows us to offer our preference shareholders a fixed return of 12.2% annually, plus an additional capital growth payout at the end of the five-year term – calculated at 10% of the initial investment amount.

Our investors’ funds are applied to grow the company – acquiring additional, superior-performing franchises and international assets to form the subsequent portfolios.

We ensure diversification, by strategically handpicking a spread of franchises across the retail, restaurants, fast food, health & beauty and construction industries. This concept amounts to the client getting a higher than average fixed income percentage and investment diversification, compared to the more conventional investment opportunities on offer.

Although this opportunity offers stable returns and extremely low risk, it does not require any involvement whatsoever by the investors in any franchise related business activities. No experience is required and investors do not share in any of the overhead costs (franchise expenses). It is a pure investment opportunity.
