Carpisa franchise launched in the UK
With the opening of its new flagship store, the Carpisa franchise has begun its plans to establish itself on the British market.
Carpisa, which sells luggage, bags and accessories toting its tortoise logo, is intending to open up further franchise businesses in London and by doing so is hoping to enjoy the same success that it currently has in Italy. The new store, which symbolizes the company’s new foreign expansion strategy, is located on London’s Oxford Street and covers two floors.
There are currently 450 Carpisa franchise stores across Italy as well as a further 29 beyond Italy’s borders. New franchisees must invest 100,000 euros; the company takes neither licence fees nor an entry fee. A successful store can achieve average sales of around 500,000 euros.
