Why have you opted for franchising? What qualities do you look for in your aspiring franchisees?

We are aiming to reach out to all the tier II and III cities. For brand expansion we have decided to opt for the franchise business model. Now we are looking at partnering with the right kind of franchisees who have in-depth understanding of the local trends and preferences, who have a passion for excellence and a go-getter attitude. We want to work with people who have an open mind and believe in lifelong learning.

The business venture requires an investment from Rs 18 lakh to a maximum of Rs 25 lakh with a minimum area of 500 sq ft. In our business the break-even is expected in 2-3 years with 25-30 per cent RoI.

How many franchise centres do you have at the moment? How many are you planning to open by the year-end?
