Happily Unmarried is all set to expand its presence across various Indian cities by way of adopting franchising as an expansion strategy.
Online PR News – 06-February-2013 – New Delhi, Delhi – Popular design and lifestyle brand, Happily Unmarried is about to launch its franchise program and is looking for enthusiastic, enterprising franchise partners. Happily Unmarried is currently present in 7 exclusive stores in Delhi, Goa, Chandigarh and Shillong, and in over 60 multi-brand outlets in 17 cities. This franchise program is an opportunity to bring the complete range of Happily Unmarried products to its fans across India.
Happily Unmarried will begin by launching franchises in major Indian metros like Bengaluru, Mumbai, Delhi NCR, Pune, Hyderabad and Chennai, and then expanding to other Indian cities. The proposed franchise format includes a full-fledged Happily Unmarried Store as well as a Size Zero Store- a format already implemented in Select City Walk, Saket and in DLF, Chandigarh.
Speaking of the decision to launch a franchise program, Rajat Tuli, one of the co-founders of Happily Unmarried says, “Our products are irreverent and original and we have been able to build our brand over the last ten years because of the ever-growing community of fun-loving people who appreciate humour, good design and humour-in-design. We have received several franchise queries in the past, and having run our own stores we are convinced about the idea. Our franchise program seeks more like-minded people who will spread the happiness and grow with the brand.”
