STEP 2 – Secure the perfect location

Identifying the ideal spot for your Potato Corner store will be challenging, but very rewarding if you do everything right. Take note that Potato Corner itself cannot assist you with finding a location, so you will have to do the scouting and evaluation yourself. Of course, you are free to consult business experts for advice. Once you’ve found a spot, you can start negotiating with the property owner until you obtain a lease offer, which is an important requirement for your Potato Corner franchise application.

STEP 3 -Apply for a Business Permit

Once you’ve finalized your location, you can start applying for a business permit. For sole-proprietorship, head to the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI). For corporation or partnership, register at Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). After that, go to the city hall or municipal hall to apply for your business permit (also known as Mayor’s Permit). Remember that the procedures and requirements may vary depending on the city or municipality.

STEP 4 – Plan manpower

Upon receiving your business permit, you can plan manpower for your Potato Corner franchise, which includes hiring, schedule, salary, and their mandatories (SSS, PhilHealth, and Pag-IBIG).

STEP 5 – Apply for your Potato Corner franchise

Once you’ve done the (rather tedious) first four steps, you can finally submit your application for a Potato Corner franchise. You need to upload the following requirements on the Potato Corner website:

  • Letter of Intent
  • 2 Valid IDs
  • Qualification form (downloaded from the Potato Corner website
  • Market Study (also from the website)
  • Lease Offer
  • Draft of Contract

It could take roughly a month for your application to get approved. Once okay, you will go through a series of activities with the franchise team of Potato Corner to prepare you for the opening of your store. They will inspect your chosen location, hold a kick-off meeting, schedule your contract signing and payment, discuss construction (if applicable), and train your staff.

After completing step 5, pat yourself on the back because you’ve just become a Potato Corner franchisee. Good luck and enjoy selling delicious fries!
