There isn’t a dearth of salons in Dubai, but more the merrier for its locals. Naturals Indian salon chain to open in Dubai with more than one outlet this year.
Naturals Indian salon chain to open in Dubai with A-list Bollywood actor Kareena Kapoor as their Brand Ambassador and a satisfied customer base, the founder and CEO of Groom India Salon and Spa, CK Kumaravel, spoke to IANS about the venture’s expansion, “We will be opening our Naturals outlet in Dubai this September. We plan to have six outlets there. We have entered into a joint venture in which we hold 25 per cent stake. The joint venture company will be the master franchisee for the UAE, Qatar and others.”
Earning a total revenue of around Dhs191 million (Rs 330 crore) during the last fiscal year, by the end of 2018 the Naturals chain is set to increase its number of stores in India to 3,000 from its current sanding 480.
The alliance with actor Kareena Kapoor as the salon chain’s brand ambassador has been a good omen, says Kumaravel.
Kumaravel, adding to his delighted words, said “Not only our potential clients look at celebrity brand ambassadors but also potential franchises look at them. Celebrity brand ambassadors provide the increased investment comfort for franchises regarding their return on investment. Several investors took up Naturals franchise after the company signed up with Kareena.”
