The first of its kind to introduce a royalty free franchise package in the South African fast food industry, Max Box is a unique business model engineered with the owner in mind.

We understand the need of our franchisees, as we were franchisees before, so we have firsthand experience on what worked for us as owners. With years of experience since 2009, we have identified the problems within the franchise model.

We strive to run our franchise based on mutual respect and working closely together with our franchisees. It became very clear to us that we had to reshape our strategy.

Royalty Free Franchise Benefits

  • No royalties.
  • Convenient and discounted product purchasing.
  • Input in product development and implementation.

  • Networking with franchisees to optimize operations and profit margins.

Royalty Free Franchise Setup cost

MAX BOX boasts a low setup cost of R 599 000 including Vat (excludes start-up stock) depending on shop size, interior and location.

This would typically include all development costs (excluding 3 phase installation) from the project initiation; in other words, from the store design to the store launch.

A more detailed development cost projection is available further into the application process. Rather than basing the marketing fee on each store’s monthly turnover, Max Box offers a low monthly marketing fee therefore it is hassle free and no monthly audits or lengthy financial returns are required.

A deposit is required by head office upon approval of your application. The balance is due prior to commencement of building of the new franchised store.

MAX BOX premises and location suggestions include

  • A minimum shop size of 35m2 and maximum of 70m2
  • Must have plumbing installed to franchise specifications and 3 phase power, with a minimum of 80 – 100 amps per phase required.
  • If electricity supply is a problem we will use gas as an alternative.

  • Applicants are strongly advised not to enter into any lease agreement for any premises without first obtaining the advice of Max Box management.
  • Acquire the landlords contact details if possible with exact address of shop/premise.

Max Box wanted to achieve a clean look, with spacious marble floors and stainless steel fittings which synched perfectly with the shops high efficiency.


We provide intensive training for our franchisees, which encompasses practical on the job training as well as theoretical training. The training provided is extensive and sufficiently comprehensive to ensure that a new franchisee is familiar with every aspect of the business prior to opening.
