They have a chain of master franchise and area developers. Even if you are lucky, they would agree for a rent + revenue model. There’s no mention of franchise process on KFC website either, so contacting the regional corporate office is the only choice. Rest depends upon your eligibility. According to some franchise owner's experiences, average cost of opening a KFC restaurant is around 1 crore to 4 crore, which depends on your location, rent, machinery and type of store. Approximately 10-12% of your total sales is charged by KFC for branding and advertisement purposes.
