The most promising areas of business activity
One of the most profitable activities in Mexico is the purchase and construction of real estate. Over the past 10 years, Mexico has become one of the most popular countries for vacation and residence, so more than 50% of investors are ready to invest their material resources in Mexican real estate.
Every year millions of solvent tourists come to Mexico, who can afford to rent apartments or villas. In addition, the cost of real estate in general is quite low, so many Canadians, Americans and Europeans can afford to buy luxury housing in Mexico, which in the U.S. would cost many times more expensive. In this regard, this type of business brings a huge income. Cancun and the Caribbean coast are especially popular for investments – there are always many people who want to buy a house here.
Franchise business in Mexico
The Mexican franchise business has been growing since 1985, when the first branch of the McDonald’s fast food restaurant chain opened in the country. The first Mexican franchisor company was founded in Guadalajara and was named Helados Bing.
The Mexican Franchise Association, which originally consisted of only 12 brands, was created almost 30 years ago, and franchising is now a major focus for more than 350 companies. Today, Mexico ranks 11th in the world in franchising development. The bulk of this business is concentrated in the country’s major cities: Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterrey. The main areas of expansion of Mexican goods are such countries as Cuba, Chile, Peru, Colombia and Brazil.
