A pizza delivery service provider in India is offering low-cost franchises for the poor.
In the country, a franchisee gets a fixed amount of money each month from the government to run the business, but the government pays them little or no rent.
So far, they have offered low-priced franchises for Rs.500 ($2.99), Rs.1,500 ($4.50), Rs 2,000 ($7.90) and Rs 2.50 ($8.50) per day.
But now they are offering a new franchise model, where a franchise owner can choose to rent a room in their own home for a fixed rent, or rent out their space to others.
The owner of the restaurant can also choose to hire an employee.
They can also set up a dedicated server, who can serve food, take orders and deliver orders.
The franchisee will be paid for the first month of operating, but if they fail to keep up with the customers, the government will deduct the first three months rent from their income.
This way, they can reduce their debt to the customer.
To ensure that the business continues to thrive, the franchisee also has to keep the business open for the rest of the month.
These are the main features of the new franchise business model.
The government also wants to encourage restaurants to set up special delivery routes for low-income families, which is another way to provide a better alternative to private sector delivery services.
