The Australian market has proven to be a happy hunting ground for many international brands. Headlined recently by a number of overseas luxury brands, it has opened the door for many internationally renowned franchise systems to follow. Food retail is one market that continues to thrive, with international cuisines a welcome addition to an already strong food culture. Well known Malaysian restaurant business, PappaRich, has achieved great early success in this industry, quickly growing to 20 stores in Australia.
The $144 billion franchise sector continues to be a booming part of Australia’s economy. Despite receiving more than its fair share of media attention, the industry is still thriving through providing opportunities for everyday Australian’s to realise their entrepreneurial ambitions.
