Pho Hoa was founded in 1983 in Sacramento, California. The main goal of Pho Hoa is to give customers easy access to delicious Vietnamese cuisine.

Pho Hoa may offer Vietnamese rolls, pho bowls, vermicelli, and rice dishes. Pho Hoa also strives to create an atmosphere where customers can come together and visit each other while enjoying tasty, wholesome food.

Pho Hoa began franchising in 1992 and has since opened locations in both the United States and overseas.

Why You May Want To Start a Pho Hoa Franchise

The ideal Pho Hoa franchisee generally needs to have previous experience in the food service, retail, or management industry. Franchisees may also need to demonstrate a willingness to participate in local marketing and community events.

Pho Hoa franchisees need to show that they are willing to dedicate their time to helping their franchise operate seamlessly. Franchisees may need proven leadership skills to create a high-performing team while having exceptional organizational skills.

Pho Hoa has been ranked in Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500. This ranking is based on an evaluation of more than 150 data points in the areas of costs and fees, size and growth, franchisee support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability.

What Might Make a Pho Hoa Franchise a Good Choice?

Pho Hoa understands that not all franchises are the same. Franchisees are allowed to choose from three different franchise models: a standalone location, co-branded model, and multi-unit franchise.

  • A standalone model allows the franchisee to open a single Pho Hoa franchise. 

  • A co-branded model allows the franchisee to open a Pho Hoa and Jazen Tea location. This model may give franchisees additional means to succeed. 

  • A multi-unit franchise allows franchisees to open more than one Pho Hoa franchise and have a protected territorial right. There may be additional requirements to qualify for a multi-unit franchise.

To be part of the Pho Hoa team, you should make sure you’re financially ready for an initial investment made up of a franchise fee and other startup costs. In addition, you should prepare yourself for ongoing fees that will include advertising, royalty, and potential renewal fees. Franchisees will also need to meet the company’s set net worth and liquid capital requirements. 

How to Open a Pho Hoa Franchise

As you decide if opening a Pho Hoa franchise is the right move for you, make sure you take time to explore the opportunity. Research the brand and your local area to see if a Pho Hoa franchise would do well in your community. While competition is healthy, too much of it may not allow for the most possible growth.

Before making any financial commitment or signing an agreement, you must perform your due diligence and establish if this is the right opportunity for you. As part of your due diligence, you may want to speak to existing franchisees and ask the Pho Hoa franchising team questions. 

If a franchise is awarded, Pho Hoa franchisees will receive support for marketing and operations. Franchisees will receive help with preparing staff for the franchise’s opening day, too. After their Pho Hoa opening, franchisees will have access to support.
