“We are very excited to bring forth the 6th edition of our ever successful Master Franshise Show. We are overwhelmed to see participation from over 8- global brands this year. The current demographic metamorphosis in India has led to a consumption boom, as there is now an identifiable section of the population with high disposable incomes, evolving lifestyles and an appetite for western merchandise. Out of all F&B sector is increasing with 25% year on year basis which I believe is a good percentage and going to dominate the market this year as well. Apart from a majority of F&B brands signed with us we also have premium retail, education and wellness brands joining hands with us,” says Gaurav Marya, Chairman, Franchise India.

“Before entering any new market we look at it from many angles such as-- Is the brand recognition high, are we able to service the market properly and do we have the bandwidth to take it on, are there quality operators that we can work with and can we meet the challenges of the particular market. 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.

“We are very excited to expand our brand in the Indian Market. India poses an incredible opportunity with affordable housing and increased consumer demand; I believe with the changes and reforms that the Indian government is bringing in, there is a huge scope in the times to come.
“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. Realopedia will link and build business networks for a global real estate audience and supports professionals at a most affordable price by providing investors the opportunity to source trusted brokers and properties. The Indian market fits perfectly well in our expansion plans, being an important element for the globalization of the real estate market working alongside NAR India,” said Laura Choueri, Founder & CEO Realopedia
