Gurgaon is the quintessential city of opportunities. Witnessing a significant boom in both its population and reputation since an industrial shift, it rapidly developed into one of the smartest up and coming cities of India. Owing to this, there is no dearth of business opportunities in Gurgaon, especially in the franchise sector. So, here are some of the best franchises to open in Gurgaon.
Featuring the entire range of Amul products, Amul parlors are exclusive outlets of the largest Milk Company in India. The outlets require an area from 100 to 300 sq. feet and are ideally located in populated areas. The best thing about an Amul franchise is that there is absolutely no royalty charges or revenue sharing policy. The only qualification a prospective franchisee requires is an ideal location.
The cost of setting up the store (interiors and equipment) has to be borne by the franchisee, and starts from INR 1.5 Lakh, going up to INR 6 Lakh, depending upon the format. With very little investment and working capital involved, Amul is a great franchise for anyone who has the right business acumen.
Founded by John Bissell in 1960, FabIndia started by exporting home furnishings. The first retail store was opened in Greater Kailash in 1975.

Serving more than 11 million customers around the world every day, Burger King is a trademark in the Quick Service Restaurant industry.

The whopper patty, for example, is a succulent pound of meat, surprisingly perky and delightfully delicious. Committed to providing its classic taste and recipes everywhere at pocket-friendly prices, along with a family-friendly dining experience, Burger King has truly arrived in the Indian market.
This American multinational chain of burgers has been received very well by the Gurgaon audience, with outlets already existing across major markets, malls, and metro stations. Opening a Burger King franchise requires a capital starting from INR 2.5 Crore, and the returns are handsome.
