FRANCHISE PROGRAM REQUIREMENT INTERNATIONAL

If you have a great head for business, a strong understanding of the Islamic Community, enthusiastic about tapping into a new yet rich market then franchising with East Essence is for you. The growth of Muslim population all over the world is going to grow the next few years thus will make the demand for our products grow. The lack of competition is due to the fact that our garments are of top quality but priced very modestly. The bonus in our product is that our customers also include a wide variety of people who prefer modest clothing for either special occasions or religious purposes.
Combined with this asset is our service and branding of our product. The level of loyalty that our customers have for our brand is outstanding and measurable since we have been around for over 5 years as a dot com company. The stores will not only tap into the internet savvy customers but will also get the one’s that either don’t have access to the internet, or don’t trust online purchasing.
We also provide financing for those franchisee’s that qualify but are short in liquid assets. Please find out if you qualify for financing.
