Yes you can succeed with Stenders


Stenders has developed an internationally successful franchised retail concept to provide its extensive product range through a unique Latvian health and beauty retail experience. Engaging the customer with unusual decoration and a well-developed culture of customer service, Stenders shops carry a theme reflecting the cultivation of nature, including specially designed furniture made of natural wood. Customer satisfaction with the shopfit and product range is continually tracked and is specifically tailored to each location.


High Street rents are at their most competitive with great availability of suitable locations, coinciding with the UK introduction of one of Eastern Europe's most attractive concepts: Stenders. With a comprehensive range of highest quality handmade soaps, cosmetics and other beauty products - all created with natural ingredients - Stenders has become a highly popular brand in 22 countries worldwide, including Japan and China. Now this Latvian company is seeking serious high calibre candidates to develop its concept across the UK.


Stenders is looking to set up in-store concessions in major, well known department stores across Europe and Asia. The company is seeking prospective Area Developers to establish in-store concessions across a minimum of 5 stores.


Stenders is planning to take suitably qualified investors on a trip to Latvia. The trip will take place in May 2009 and be 3 days in total. The only expense will be €575, covering the return flight to and from Gatwick, airport transfers, overnight hotel with meals.

'Stenders is the most exciting retail concept in the sector since The Body Shop. The stores bring some excitement to the high street because of the strong Latvian branding. Provided the new franchise owners who come onboard are able to recreate and maintain the Latvian image they should be able to separate the Stenders outlets from the competition.'
Professor Roy Seaman, Managing Director of Franchise Development Services

'The products are made to specifically developed recipes and have a very strong emphasis and ethic of quality, naturalness and eco-awareness. The quality of the products, innovative shop design and customer service approach combine to provide the franchise owner with a proven formula for success.'
Gordon Patterson and Gary Rigby, FDS Southern Franchise Consultants
