Franchising in South Africa has grown to such an extent that most independent business owners are considering taking this modern, safer and very profitable route.
When an independent business owner becomes part of a strong franchise group, they instantly have the power of the group behind them whilst still being able to keep their unique individuality.
Joining a franchise has many different benefits to a store owner. Some of which include, buying power, rebate structures, brand recognition through means of successful and well planned marketing campaigns, a professional support structure, first class IT and program support and much more.
Legendary Retail Brands, started as Burgandy Rose Trading 64 Limited, as the company that gave Mica Hardware a fresh start in 2009 when the Mica members branded together to purchase the Mica brand outright from Super Group.
Under Burgandy Rose, Mica’s success grew to such proportions that it enabled its Shareholders the opportunity to bring additional brands into the stable. In 2010, Legendary Retail Brands bought the House of Paint & Décor Brand from ChemSpec and in a strategic move in 2012, incorporated DIY Depot into the fold too.
From a retailer’s point of view, looking to the future, and taking note of the ongoing market consolidation in both the retail and supplier segments, it makes sense to see that strength comes from unity.
By standing together as “independent retailers”, the Legendary Retail Brands Members or Store Owners will enjoy the benefits of having a “big brother” to back them and help face the future whilst still maintaining their individuality and their ability to trade in their market…it will now just be a bit easier.
