'Every store we have opened so far has attracted queues of people eager to sample our unique range of innovative and stylish shoes,' he said.

'We have 15 franchised and four company-owned stores and seven more opening soon.'

Unzè is also attracting interest from overseas investors and has opened its first international store in New York, with stores in Holland and California scheduled to open before the end of the year.

Franchise Development Services Consultant Paul Hague, who has assisted Unzè in the development of the franchise, congratulated Kamran on the success of the brand at the recent National Franchise Exhibition. 'I'm very proud to be associated with Unzè,' he said. 'It was clear from the start that Unzè was a great concept. It has a fantastic product range that has real selling power, and a friendly, caring head office team focused on driving the business forward.'

Unzè (Franchising Ltd) is the retail arm of Shalimar Shoes Ltd, a company established in 1989 by the Saleem family. The franchise model is built on the solid foundations of an established wholesale business selling its range through some 700 independent UK retailers and in a further 900 locations overseas. With a strong pipeline of franchisees waiting to come on board, Unzè is focused on controlled growth of the brand.
