Maddie & Mark’s Shoes – a leading independent retailer of high quality children’s shoes – is seeking motivated and ambitious individuals to take its franchise brand into the Middle East.
The company is seeking master franchisees and area developers with outstanding business acumen to build a franchise network in the Middle East region. Master franchise and area developer licenses include a fantastic training, support and business start package for your first store as well as the exclusive rights to develop the Maddie and Mark’s brand in the region through sub franchising the brand to others or opening multiple company operated outlets.
Business founder Imogen Douglas opened her first shop in Edinburgh in 2007 after getting frustrated at the lack of unique, well-fitted shoes available for her daughter. The shop was an instant hit with its international stock of stylish shoes catering for the many different shapes and sizes of children’s feet. A second Edinburgh-based shop followed less than a year later. Revenues have grown year on year hitting its first million in October 2011.
Imogen said, “We have a proven business model with potentially excellent margins and growth potential. We operate in highly visible areas and specialise in children’s shoes and accessories. However, what sets us apart from other retailers is the high levels of customer service we offer. Our staff are fully trained to measure children’s feet properly to ensure a perfect fit and we carry an outstanding range of stock which is very difficult to find elsewhere.”
She added; “We see the Middle East as a prime region for development. Consumers appreciate high quality products and excellent customer service. This is a fantastic opportunity for the right person or company to take our brand and develop it for the Middle East market.”
