An Edinburgh-based franchise owner is needed to open the first Taylor of Old Bond Street location in Scotland.

The luxury male grooming retailer is keen to expand its brand throughout the UK and is specifically looking to open a store in Edinburgh.

Since it was founded in 1854, Taylor of Old Bond Street has gained a reputation for selling high quality male grooming products and accessories. The company currently has a store trading on Jermyn Street, in the heart of London’s West End, as well as a location in Selfridges, on Oxford Street.

Throughout its history the brand has kept up-to-date with changes in the male grooming industry and has recently developed a range that is relevant to the modern consumer.

Taylor of Old Bond Street is looking for franchise owners who have a passion for, and an understanding of, luxury retailing. The company’s franchise support team will provide thorough training and ongoing support, which includes help in selecting a suitable site for the store. The franchise investment fee is around £180,000, depending on location, which covers set-up, fit and stock for the store.

In addition to targeting Edinburgh the company is keen to hear from franchise owner applicants for cities across the UK and in particular for Cheltenham and York.
