Useful Tips

When starting a business in a foreign country, it can be difficult to come up with a good business idea, find a trustworthy partner, or locate a lucrative opportunity. Franchising is an ideal solution if you want to own and run a business in Hungary without the hassle of starting from scratch.

Franchise opportunities

If you are looking to start a business in Hungary but do not know where to begin – or if you do not wish to deal with the hassle of starting a business from scratch – consider buying into a local franchise chain. With our help, you can have a business up and running in just a few months. We manage our portfolio through ongoing market research and network-building to ensure that you always have access to the best franchise options available.

The benefits of franchising

For a foreign investor looking to start a business in Hungary, buying a franchise is an excellent option: you will be in control of your own business and develop it at your own pace while also enjoying the benefits of an established brand, a proven and successful business model, and a local partner who is just as devoted to your success as you are.

Business ideas

Our clients can choose from our expertly selected and researched portfolio of the best local businesses – restaurant and café chains, retail outlets, laundromats, gardening centers, beauty salons, and many more!

How we select the best franchises

We offer franchise opportunities for every budget, ranging from EUR 50K to EUR 500K in investment value, with the typical investment requiring EUR 100-150K in capital. All of the opportunities in our portfolio are acquired through our trusted business network and pre-evaluated by our team of financial and legal experts before being presented to you.
