Once we establish this criteria and are comfortable we start to look for the right partners helping in expansion, we have partnered with Franglobal/Franchise India for our brand, also keeping in mind the current Indian Market we felt that this is the right time to enter the Market,” said Steve Abrams, CEO, Magnolia Bakery.

“With high purchasing power, continuously rising population, increasing nuclear families and rapid urbanisation, the housing sector in India is anticipated to record a strong growth in the coming years.
The real estate sector in India is likely to reach a market size of $180 billion by 2020.
