Foreign and local investors and corporations have been focusing on the trend of franchise business in Vietnam.
The Vietnam market has always been a potential land for international brands’ franchise activities. These investors have obtained the required license to market famous brands such as Zara, Holiday Inn, McDonald’s Subway, Carl’s Junior, Sonic, Dunkin’ Donuts, Starbucks, Wendy’s and many others.
In 2017, Mitra Adiperkasa made a huge impact on the entire franchise market by launching Pull and Bear, Massimo Dutti, and Stradivarius in Ho Chi Minh City, and Zara in Hanoi.
