1. New Store Franchise
The first type of Alfamart franchise is a new outlet. As the name implies, a new outlet is a type of franchise that is built from scratch in an approved location.
For the amount of capital, this type of franchise requires capital of around Rp. 300 - Rp. 500 million. This value can change at any time following the applicable policies and of course outside of the cost of renting the property or place.
Cost Estimation of New Alfamart Franchise Outlets
|Store Type||Number of Products||Area Luas||Investment|
|9 Shelf||1200||30 m2||Rp 300 Million|
|18 Shelf||1600||60 m2||Rp 350 Million|
|36 Shelf||3800||80 m2||Rp 450 Million|
|45 Shelf||4500||120 m2||Rp 500 Million|
The cost estimate above includes the following benefits.
- Franchise Fee of IDR 45 Million
- Shelf and Store Needs
- New Franchise Promotion Costs
- Shop Sign & Poli Sign
2. Conversion Store Franchise
The second type of Alfamart franchise is a conversion outlet. This type of franchise transforms an old grocery store into a new Alfamart. This type tends to be more economical because you can use the stock and goods you already have for opening a new Alfamart. So, the initial capital that you have to spend is relatively smaller when compared to opening a new outlet from scratch.
3. Takeover Outlet Franchise
Lastly is the takeover type Alfamart franchise. By choosing this franchise, you will automatically take over an existing or ongoing business. For initial investment costs, you need at least IDR 800 million.
This fee includes a 5-year franchise fee, a 5-year location lease, equipment, and licensing. In short, this third type carries the "accept done" system. You will not have to mess around with promotional activities and other licensing matters.
Overall, the three types of existing franchises are equally profitable. All existing outlets have a uniform appearance and are equipped with operational support facilities such as inventory warehouses, air conditioning, parking lots, and skilled and trained sales assistants.

Alfamart Franchise Profit Estimation
The following is a calculation of the estimated profit and capital of the Alfamart franchise quoted from advantage.net. The existing calculation example uses a new type of outlet with a choice of 45 rack outlet types.
Franchise Cost IDR 500 Million (New Store Type 45 Shelves Size 120 m2)
Estimated Income Per Month
Sales (IDR 25,000,000 x 30 Days) = IDR 750,000,000
Assuming 10% gross profit margin = IDR 75,000,000
Estimated Spending Per Month
Employee wages for 5 people @ IDR 4,000,000 = IDR 20,000,000
Operational Cost (2% X Turnover) = IDR 15,000,000
Total Expenditures Per Month = IDR 35,000,000
Profit Per Month = Assumed Gross Margin Profit - Total Spending Per Month
Profit Per Month = IDR 75,000,000 - IDR 35,000,000 = IDR 40,000,000
Time of BEP / Payback: (Initial Capital: Net Profit per Month) = IDR 750,000,000 : IDR 40,000,000 = 18.75
From the results of existing calculations, it can be concluded that the investment capital you spend is predicted to return on investment within 19 months. This estimate is of course quite fast considering the capital spent is not small. Even so, the existing calculations are tentative or can change depending on the sales results you get each month.
Alfamart is a retail business that is never empty of customers. Running this franchise will certainly provide a lot of experience and benefits if you are really serious about it.
