Fossil India , a subsidiary of Fossil Inc, a $3.2 billion american brand, is  planning to invest  Rs. 25 crore for expansion in India in 2014-15. It opened its single brand retail store in Mumbai recently, and are looking at a franchise model for it's multi-brand retail franchise stores under the Watch Station International franchise (WSI) brand. It has already signed the first pilot store ten days ago at the New Delhi airport. It is looking at all possible models to ensure that it is present thru atleast 25 wholly owned single brand stores across top high streets and major malls and use the WSI franchise network in India for reach across tier I,II & III cities while ensuring that it occupies the ‘market gap’ which exists in the ‘bridge to luxury’ segment as per Vasant Nangia, Managing Director Fossil India. Since the Sub Rs 2000 category was not performing well for the established players, the company was confident that the consumer is maturing and there is good brand awareness.

Fossil Inc also makes watches for international brands such as Burberry, DKNY, Emporio Armani and Diesel among others, while it opened its first store in Mumbai earlier this month, including a factory outlet in Bangalore , which is also Fossil's headquarters in India .Fossil India, has been amongst the first few companies who have set up wholly owned set up after being approved by the Foreign Investment Promotion Board last year, and has been ‘bullish on manufacturing’ in India, as sourcing in china becomes expensive, and hence it plans to ramp up its manufacturing facility in Palwan, Himachal Pradesh to produce at least five lakh watches by the end of the year for its local as well as international market. It was also extremely confident that it would 'more than exceed' the government’s 30 per cent local sourcing requirement for single brand FDI, as per Nangia.

Cafe Coffee Day Plans Franchise Locations Abroad.


Several Indian brands have been looking at franchising in international markets, as brands like cafe coffee day(CCD) start looking beyond India. CCD already has presence in Austria and Czech Republic after it acquired Cafe Emporio in 2010. It is now looking at the south east asian markets which could prove as more mature markets as they have long eating hours which begin early in the morning and go upto late nights. There is a sizeable Indian population as well, which could form a very important part of the customers patronizing the brand. Other restaurants like Punjab Grill and the popular mumbai sea food restaurant Gajalee have received a very favourable reception.

Business Standard reported a senior CCD official quoting "While we are actively considering expanding through franchisees, we however have not ruled out our direct presence. The thought process is that, if we align with a local franchisee partner, we may have a deeper understanding of the customer preferences in the local markets and a whole host of 'route-to-market' strategies," clearly signaling the readiness to look at a master franchisee if they found a suitable suitor.

CCD sources coffee from 11,000 small growers in addition to what it grows on its own 13,000 acre estates plus another 7,000 acre of managed estates, making its holder the largest individual coffee plantation owner in Asia. CCD part of India's largest coffee conglomerate, Amalgamated Bean Coffee Trading Company Ltd. (ABCTCL), who were the first to roll out the 'coffee bar' in Bangalore being the first ones to do so in India. Along the way, it is the only vertically-integrated (from farm to the coffee cup) coffee company which has not only domestic but international presence.

PowerPoint Cartridge Refilling Franchises Expanding Across India.



Move over Cartridge World Franchise and Re-feel Franchise as several other cartridge refilling companies have been eyeing the opportunity to expand using the franchise model to tap the Indian market for printer cartridges which is pegged at over Rs 4,000 crore and is growing annually at over 30 percent YOY for the last couple of years.

PowerPoint Cartridges Pvt. Ltd – an ISO 9001:2008 certified company Estd in 2010 – offers complete printing solutions to its customers. Its customers include individual as well as corporates, helping them to make huge savings on their printing cost with their solutions. It also offers sales and maintenance support to multiple brands of computers, servers, s/ws and IT peripherals.They have lready marked their presence in Delhi, Punjab, Haryana, Jammu, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Uttaranchal is Mumbai Based PowerPoint Cartridges Pvt Ltd. It soon plans to appoint franchises in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu as well, marking their entry into South India as they plan to expand across all Tier 1 and Tier II cities of India.

Vishesh Nangia, CEO of Power Point Cartridges said "We have realised that refilling of cartridges demand was far more than anticipated and we have successfully proven our business model. We are now ready to roll out our footprints in the Indian market through a franchise model of expansion."

Typical Investments Needed To Start A Power Point Cartridge Franchise Business Opportunity
Commenting on the importance of using the franchise model for local connect, Mr Nangia further said that the consumer growth in tier I and II cities is expected to be more compared to metro cities in next 5 years. “It strikes a perfect balance by partnering with franchise owners and operate through retail oriented stores that will serve both consumer and business market with ready to sell inventory. Now,” he added.

India’s cartridge industry is growing by leaps and bounds owing to increased usage of cartridges for various printing needs. “The Indian customer has a very limited choice between expensive Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) cartridges, counterfeits and ‘locally’ refilled cartridges of poor quality. A product, which is cost effective and yet assures the performance of a brand new cartridge, is undoubtedly a strong value proposition,” he added.

PowerPoint Cartridges have a wide range of cartridges that suits various OEMs printer devices and which costs less than 50 per cent of OEMs. “Our USP is to provide quality at a lower cost and every cartridge sold comes with a 100% warranty. One of our corporate clients saved close to Rs 2 crore last fiscal. Moreover, we have maintained a record 95% customer satisfaction,” he pointed out.

Another business module developed by PowerPoint Cartridges is Managed Printing Services (MPS). According to a recent survey, 70 per cent of the companies have no overview of their printing cost. Every year organizations without actually realizing spend a considerable amount of money on buying new printers/multifunctional devices, consumables, managing inventory etc. 

The business module MPS is basically the outsourcing the contract of printing/copying applications to a MPS provider over a contractual period, which involves deploying the devices, providing services/consumables and billing the customer as per their usage along with MIS data. PowerPoint has gone 1 step ahead by introducing “ADOPTION” module, where its offers the same services and value additions on customer’s assets.  

The benefits of MPS are as such No Capital expenditure, low operating cost, Zero risk obsoleteness, Avoid multiple vendors, device Uptime, single point vendor, saving on inventory and logistics Customized MIS reports like printing trends, cost analysis, device uptime etc. 

PowerPoint Cartridges has taken a strong position in the market with their customized solutions as per customer requirements and applications. Today it has a strong base of more than 2000 customers from TOP 500 fortune companies, BFSI sector and SME segments and plans to emulate its success across the country through its franchise model.

Exploring International Retail Franchise Opportunities In India? The Smiley Company Is Seeking Franchise Partners In India.


Nicolas Loufrani, CEO and Son Of Franklin Loufrani who founded the The Smiley Company, is in India speaking to prospective franchisee partners who will represent and help him grow the brand presence in India. 

Why A Smiley Franchise License In india ?
Nocolas Lofrani CEO of The Smiley Company

As the companies website says:
• Every product and activity built around the philosophy of happiness and positivity
• One of the most recognisable logos in the world
• Thousands of icons trademarked & copyrighted across all major categories
• A TOP 100 Global licensing company in the world
• Trademarked and protected in over 100 different countries
• Over 1000 licensees and collaborations around the world since 1972
• Headquartered in London, with major offices around the world
• Celebrated 40 Years of Heritage in 2012.

The Smiley Company has 4.5 million followers on Facebook out of which half a million come from India. "Therefore, India is a market that our $167 million company couldn't afford to overlook for long as today it contributes less than 1% of its revenue while the potential could be much larger as per Nicolas Loufrani, its CEO. Smiley T-shirts (including other merchandise) has been available through departmental stores like LifeStyle in India for the last two years. But Loufrani is confident that a good franchise partner will help his company set up business and grow the brand in India, as is done globally. 

The India Partner would work closely with the company in setting up Smiley World Stores Franchises which would have the complete merchandise of The Smiley Company  which ranges from apparel, sportswear, shoes, bags, jewellery, school merchandise, accessories and even Smiley branded chocolates and confectionery.

After tasting success by selling its merchandise through Zara, Benetton and H&M, the company ventured last year, rather lately to an exclusive store model with an extensive range of products. It set up its first exclusive store in London only last year, and is now looking at the exclusive store route in most of the new markets it's entering. It recently signed a 150 store franchise deal over the next three years in China, and now is seeking to replicate the franchise expansion strategy in India. 

Commenting on the difficult retail scenario and retail market conditions of India, he said "Our know-how is marketing and communicating with our consumers. Setting up stores is something we don't understand. Our Indian partner will develop that for us."This clearly sets up the iconic brand in an interesting phase of evolution in India and all that we can expect is that it will definitely spread millions of cheers everywhere it goes.

Zaplist to Recruit Online Retail Franchises In Rural India.

Kirty Kedia CEO & Founder
Zaplist Technologies
Taking a cue from successful online retail models in South East Asian Countries of Vietnam, Malaysia and Indonesia, Kirty Kedia , A Computer Science Graduate From University Of Manchester, and Founder of  Zaplist Technologies, has launched a franchise model called 'Zaplist Hub,' that will enable a rural shopper in India to buy anything virtually from consumer electronics to home use items from the internet through a local representative/franchisee. Keerti is backed by her Uncle Bijay Agarwal, Chairman of  1000 Cr Plus Gee Pee Group.

Zaplist Hub Franchise Plans are afloat to recruit over 50,000 franchise partners in the first 6 months and hope to add over a million franchises over the next 2 years. The franchisees will be the offline ambassadors of zaplist.in, a shopping portal from where the products will be delivered either to the franchises premises or the customers doorstep as per their convenience, thru Gati or Blue Dart couriers. All that the buyer has to do is to reach out to the individual or the family who acts as the franchisee and takes orders and payments and places the same online.

Geepee Infotech which sells low cost mobile phones in rural markets understand the aspirational needs of the rural masses and the concerns that the consumers could have while dealing with alien things like internet and credit card payments. Bijay Agarwal, who is the Gee Pee Group chairman and pioneered flagship Gee Pee Infotech's Rs 563-crore cellphone business, says a small town franchisee who would get to sell over 10,000 national and international branded products which is rarely available in rural markets can gain a lot of interest, specially when they do not have the responsibility of maintaining an inventory or running the risks associated with it. Also it creates a different kind of a Kirana store, albeit, the products are only visible on the screen and reach your homes. The new age Zaplist Kirana Merchant will earn upto 30% commission on every transaction, while this could vary from category to category, and could be high for toys, mobiles, cosmetics and home decor items.

Keerti Kedia, CEO of Zaplist Technologies plan to use the local franchisees to increase a rural customer's comfort factor and make online shopping a more trustworthy experience as their research suggests that 60% of Indians with internet access are still afraid to buy online from faceless companies or merchants. The company will roll out the franchise model initially in Tier-2, 3 & 4 towns across eastern states like Orissa, West Bengal and other states of Northeast and from there it will move to Uttar Pradesh and Delhi, and finally to south India.The cost of owning a Zaplist Hub Franchise would a refundable deposit of Rs 1 Lakh which will fetch an interest of 9% P.A. while the pre-requisite will be to have a PAN card and an Internet connection.

With Big Bazaar Direct also aiming at rural markets and using technology to reach the rural consumers it will be interesting to watch Zaplist's experiment with rural online shopping in India.

Starting A Mobile Phone Shop Franchise In India Gets Easier.

Mobile Phone Retail Franchises are visible almost everywhere like your kirana (convenience) stores in India. We have been witnessing the growth of these electronic shop franchise across India as consumers want a shop next door for buying handsets or for buying currency or recharges for their connections. Starting a mobile phone retail franchise has never been easier as India's largest mobile phone retailers are now ready to expand their outlets across India. Whether you are from Mizoram or from Rameshwaram, you can now choose your favourite mobile retailer and open a mobile phone shop franchise in your city.

Chennai Based Univercell Mobile Franchise plans to double its footprint to 1000 outlets by 2015 from its present count of 500 stores. The company has finalized a franchise strategy and will invest 25Cr to get a pan india footprint.

Managing Director, D Satish Babu of Indus Mobile Distribution Private Ltd that owns the Univercell Brand quoted “In the next few months, we will be opening 200 franchise outlets, including 100 in Andhra Pradesh. We are going to increase the number of outlets to 1,000, targeting a turnover of Rs 1,800 crore by the end of March 2015.”  The company is backed by private equity firm Peepul Capital, has been growing at over 30% a year and reported sales of Rs 1,100 crore by March 2013. The aim is to get to 10,000 Cr annual sales by 2020 as per the M.D.

The company currently has 15 franchise stores while they plan to continue to expand company-owned stores mostly in the tier-I and tier-II centres across the country, they are looking at adding franchise stores in the tier-III and tier-IV towns, mostly in the semi-urban and rural areas.

On the other hand the Essar Group-owned mobile retailer, which holds a 27% share of the modern trade mobile phone retail, is happy with its leadership position in the north, south and eastern regions of the country, but doesn't have any aggressive expansion plans in the south, which is dominated by regional players.They have now plans to get into eastern India very aggressively. This move is alos synchronised with the telecom regulator's proposed Rs 2,918-crore investment plan to boost voice and data coverage in the northeastern states, where connectivity is much lower than the national average. The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) has clearly mentioned that the government will require a large investment in Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Sikkim and Tripura that have an average tele-density of 40%, which reduces to 10% in villages.

The Mobile Store will begin setting up franchise stores in the seven states, a model it has chosen to tap uncharted territory. Chief executive Himanshu Chakravarti told ET earlier that the company was initially reluctant to get into the franchise model due to challenges around management of supply chain, logistics management and security.

"Northeast is one of the big opportunity areas, but it's a troublesome territory to approach. We will have several franchisees and master franchisees for some of the states," he said. The retail chain currently owns 800 stores that sell multiple brand handsets with 10% on the franchise model. The company is planning to add around 40 new stores a year in the other part of the country depending upon the opportunities it gets.

The Indian mobile phones market, which was at 160 million units valued at $8 billion in 2011, is projected to reach a size of 240 million units valued at $15 billion by 2015 March.

Pakistan Franchise Comes To India : Murree Brewery Awaits Eagerly To Start Business In India.

You may recall that there was some buzz in 2010 about Murree Brewery coming to India with the UB group through a brand exchange program. While that fizzled out, there has been news lately that the company is under serious discussion with a chandigarh based distribution company that is seeking the brewery franchise. Earlier this year, the company had signed up Rahul Chandra of Bangalore-based Elpha Engineering and Project to produce and market its beer in India.However, Mr Chandra has not been able to make any headway and after waiting for more than a year Murree Brewery has decided to look for another partner to brew and market the famous Murree beverages in India.

Established in a tourist mountain resort town in Galyat area of northern Pakistan in 1860 in a lane called 'Ghora Galli'  in response to demand for beer by the British officers, Murree is Iconic and is amongst the oldest running enterprise in Pakistan. Since It was not permissible to export beer to India through Wagah-Attari border so we decided to offer our company's franchise to synergetic partners to brew, bottle and market Murree beer in India. This will also strengthen trading ties between India and Pakistan. The product will hit the market soon  quoted CEO of Murree Brewery, Isphanyar Bhandara, to TOI.

Workers Inspect the bottles at the Brewery.
Bhandara further elaborated on the brand range of the company from beer, single malt whisky, scotch whisky, vodka and brandy. As the Pakistani law prohibited Muslims from consuming alcoholic drinks and non-Muslims or foreigners required consumption permits, they sold the alcoholic products in five-star hotels only. There is prohibition of export of alcoholic products as well in Pakistan. Hence finding franchisees or working through a franchise model for our beer in India was the logical step for the company.
