Brunei Franchising Opportunities: “I think it is easy to build businesses on the back of a franchise because you have standards and operations carved out for you. There’s a framework, so it is easy to be successful in it, because you have that support behind you,” said Haslina Taib, chief executive officer of BAG Networks, and member of the Brunei APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Community) Business Advisory Council.

Brunei Franchising Business
Brunei has recently been seeing a shift in the franchising landscape, with international brands coming in droves over the past few years. While a few global brands have established themselves in the country after several years of operations, the influx of international franchises has presented the residents of the sultanate with an array of choices that had, until recently, been unavailable to them.
In the past few months, Brunei has seen the entry of international coffee chains, casual dining restaurants, bubble tea brands, and fast food companies through franchising. Among the recent entrants are Gloria Jean’s Coffee from Australia, Kenny Rogers Roasters from Malaysia, Auntie Anne’s Pretzels from the US, Japanese restaurant Sushi Tei and Killiney Kopitiam from Singapore, and bubble tea brands Ochado (Japanese) and Gongcha (Taiwanese).
It has also been reported that a few more, including Taiwanese bubble tea brand Chatime and American iconic coffee brand Starbucks, will soon be making a foray into this country of 400,000 people.
