Open-a-Franchise-Business-in-Georgia.jpgThrough positive government regulations addressed to the business market, Georgia is now one of the most preferred investment destinations in its region. Investors who want to open a company in Georgia can benefit from numerous incentives in a country which ranked on the 16th place for the ease of doing business in the latest edition of the World’s Bank Doing Business report.
 
One of the ways to enter the local market is by establishing a franchise business. Most of the franchise businesses in Georgia are held in the fast food sector, as well as the accommodation industry. Our team of specialists in company formation in Georgia can assist foreign businessmen with in-depth information on the main regulations related to franchising in this country. 
 

Franchising sector in Georgia  

 
The first franchise businesses were established in Georgia during the 1990s by international fast-food corporations
 
Most of the franchise agreements signed in Georgia are completed in the following business sectors: 
 
fast food
accommodation;
retail;
catering
 
Foreign entrepreneurs interested in company formation in Georgia for a franchise bussiness are required to sign a franchise agreement, which must establish certain terms and conditions that must be respected by both the franchisor and the franchisee. Our team of agents in company registration can offer legal advice on the main stipulations set up in this sense. 
 
At the moment, five out of ten world’s leading franchises have a business presence in Georgia, while the accommodation industry is represented by 19 international franchises
 

Accommodation franchises in Georgia  

 
The Georgian government provides, starting with 2016, special incentives applicable to the companies operating in the accommodation sector through a franchise agreement.
 
In the situation in which the foreign company will built an accommodation unit in Georgia (in all the country’s regions, except Tblisi and Batumi cities), the local government will offer a co-financing mechanism for the first two years, under the program Produce in Georgia
 
In the case of loans in GEL, the government will offer a 10% subsidy applicable to the interest rate, while the loans in EUR will receive a 8% subsidisy, this being one of the several advantages that can be obtained through a franchise agreement. Our agents can provide more details on the government incentives and investors are invited to contact our team of consultants in company registration in Georgia for further advice on the incorporation of a franchise business
