FrancorpUS$2 trillion to invest in new businesses

For brands looking to expand or launch franchises, the Middle East provides a lucrative opportunity with the presence of more than 400,000 high net-worth individuals with liquid assets of more than US$5 million. That totals US$2 trillion of available funds to invest in new businesses.

To help connect international F&B franchisers with investors from across the Middle East and Africa, SIAL Middle East 2013 will host a dedicated exhibition and seminar programme for the F&B franchise industry.

In 2012, the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor classified the UAE as an innovation-driven economy, with a 38% increase in start-up businesses & SMEs comprising 46% of the economy. With Governments across the GCC region implementing initiatives to encourage a wealthy and youthful population to start their own businesses, the franchise industry in the Middle East is now growing at an unsurpassed rate of 27% per annum.

On the exhibition floor, F&B Franchise Middle East will present international and local brands selling franchise opportunities in the Middle East, as well as host a series of seminars to give visitors the latest information, trends and strategies for successfully buying and selling an F&B franchise in the Middle East.
