Despite KFC being by far the most popular fast food franchise in South Africa, it is not likely to increase its number of restaurants any time soon.
KFC South Africa brand owner, Yum International, has noted that the company is not currently looking for new franchisees.
However, existing KFC franchisees may elect to sell their businesses, and it is therefore possible to become a new KFC franchisee by purchasing an existing KFC business.
According to the latest franchise data available from KFC, new franchise owners could expect to pay close to R6 million for a new franchise.
With the only option to now buy a franchise from a current owner, prospective franchisees can expect this number to increase or decrease slightly depending on a number of factors such as location and demand.
