Thirteen fast food franchises will be opening 40 new stores this year, after 2015 saw the arrival of some new players and the departure of others.
A survey carried out by Nacion.com on the franchising industry revealed that about 40 new stores will generate 360 jobs this year, compared to the 654 redundancies recorded in fast foodrestaurants segment in 2015.
The union of restaurants in Guatemala confirmed the closure of the chain of US origin, which in March 2014 began the process of acceding to Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Salvador Contreras, union representative, told Elperiodico.com.gt that "... officially no reason for the closure is known or if there is an operation with firms that are replacing the brand."
Not only fast food franchises are growing, but also hospitality ones.
For example, during the first six months of 2013, seven Friday's restaurants, established in the country and run by the local group UNESA, recorded revenues of $9 million. Although some of these facilities reported low sales, the company says it is due to the stabilization of consumers, the time of year and other factors.
