Online lingerie brand PrettySecrets to go Offline

The first two stores that the brand is going to launch on 2nd of April would be company owned stores and for the rest 28 stores, the brand would follow franchising business model.

Online lingerie brand PrettySecrets is making entry in brick and mortar retailing with the launch of two stand alone stores in Mumbai on 2nd April’2017. The brand also to launch additional 30 stores by 2017 and 300 stores by 2019, a top company official said this today.

“We are opening our exclusive stores in Mumbai day after tomorrow. We also have plans to make 30 stores operational by November 2017 and 300 stores by 2019,” Karan Behal, founder & CEO, PrettySecrets said.

The first two stores that the brand is going to launch on 2nd of April would be company owned stores and for the rest 28 stores, the brand would follow franchising business model.

For company owned stores, Behal said the average investment they are putting is around Rs 50 lakh. However, for the franchise stores, the investment range would be between Rs 35 lakh to 60 lakh, depending on the size and location of those stores.

“Twenty of these stores would be located in Mumbai and rest of the stores can be pan India. The stores are expected to contribute 25% to the company’s revenues in the next 3 years and by 2020, we hope to capture a market share of 3-5%. ” Behal, said.

Talking about the lingerie market in India, Behal said the size of the market including the nightwear segment, is 20000 crore and has been growing at 20% CAGR over the past 5 years and it is going to reach around Rs 30000 crore by 2020.

He said success of lingerie business in India largely depends on three factors- including manufacturing, supply chain and inventory. Since a particular product like a bra can have as many as 16-24 different sizes, whereas a shirt can be found in 3-4 sizes, here the inventory control is very crucial.

“Offline distribution should also scale and we will be present in around 1,000 plus stores by end of this year and maintain our dominance of the online marketplaces that we are already dominating,” revealed Behal.

Presently, PrettySecrets.com serves more than 19,000 pincodes in India. The brand wants to optimize its omni-channel presence and offer the Indian consumers more than just a click-and-ship marketplace. Thus, it will soon release its Progressive Web App (PWA) in 2017 for an ultra-modern shopping experience.

According to Behal, “We raised the Series B round about nine months ago and the way, the company is structured and the way our plans are going we do not require additional funding to execute these plans.”

The brand is shipping out more than 1,500 to 2,000 units of products per day and has grown at about 150 per cent as compared to the last year.

“Our goal is from now till December we grow at around 200 per cent. So by December, the target is that we are shipping out at least 4,000 units a day,” revealed Behal.

The Franchising Business – Some Expert Tips and Advices

Starting a franchising business involves a number of steps including creating a franchise development plan, documentation of operational procedures, making arrangements for training and assistance, preparing a franchise contract, attracting franchisees, establishing new franchisees, and organizing your business setup. Similar to any other business, there are certain pros and cons involved in becoming a franchisee.

Given below are some expert tips and advices that have been categorized into do’s and don’ts. You can always follow these advices to make a well-informed decision.


  1. Always provide a precise estimate about your financial state to the franchisor so that he can evaluate whether this investment is sensible for you.
  2. When you are being asked questions, you should give straight, candid and truthful replies. Whenever you have any doubt, try to make it clear. This will earn you regard from your franchisor.
  3. Always fill out the application forms meticulously. In the beginning, the franchisor will evaluate how comprehensively you answer. This form will be kept by the franchisor in his records if he goes ahead with you.
  4. Always ask questions regarding how interviews or conferences will be conducted. Always stay ready. Read the fine print carefully all the time. Ask for the Uniform Franchise Offering Circular (UFOC).
  5. You should always ensure that you are well dressed whenever you come to the meeting. This will create a positive impression in the franchisor’s mind that you are sincere about the deal.
  6. You should always be co-operative regarding any evaluation methods since this will help the franchisor ascertain your pluses and minuses.
  7. Always try to keep a professional relationship with the franchisor. Take sufficient time for exploring the franchisor and its present franchisees.


  1. You should not be ambiguous or avoid any matters. Always try to provide particular answers to the questions you face from the franchisor.

  3. You should not misrepresent or leave blank areas in the application form. Any kind of misrepresentation may backfire on you.
  4. You should not carry any assumption that you are aware of everything that is going to be discussed in the meeting. If you are taken by surprise, then the franchisor may think you are incapable.
  5. You should not pretend to be someone which you are not. You might be considered as unreliable by the franchisor.
  6. You should not make decisions by feeling obliged, afraid, or emotional. Always keep in mind that you are entering a long-standing association and the individual from whom you are buying the franchise might not be there at some point.

No matter what the scale of operation of the franchisor is, they will always search for franchisees who can provide high quality services and help their business grow by customer satisfaction.

If you can’t run your business properly, then you might have to resort to bankruptcy. Given below are seven proven steps to successful franchising:

1) Start with a franchise development plan

If you think that your own business is in a satisfactory position, then the initial step you should take is to compose a franchise development plan. This would work as a blueprint which has many resemblances with a business plan and will take into consideration many factors such as your budget, your objectives, planned growth, SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats), supply chain, marketing plans, necessary features of franchisees, management structure, fees and royalties payable by the franchisees, and the quality monitoring procedures.

2) Get standard systems ready

In this step, you have to:

  • Evaluate the objectives and performance recurrently to take into consideration peripheral elements
  • Introduce systems for keeping an eye on the franchise.

Is franchise an alternative to be your own boss

If you are thinking of kissing goodbye to your boss and possessing an establishment of your own, you can think of franchising as an excellent option. Franchising is the process where the owner of a business brand (franchisor) gives the legal right to another person (franchisee) to market the products or services of that particular brand under its trade name. The franchisee pays the franchisor in order to obtain the right and the franchisor in return provides guidance, training, manpower and professional support. If you think leadership and management are your forte, then franchising can be an extremely promising opportunity for you.

There are several positive points in favor of franchising being an alternative to be your own boss.

  • It minimizes the high risk involved in starting and establishing a new business. Getting attached to a brand that has already proved its worth is more beneficial than introducing a new name in the market.
  • The extensive training provided by the franchise is valuable for setting up a business successfully. Most franchises would train a franchisee in the field of marketing, management, human resources, accounting etc. Often they provide business consultants to give professional advice to new franchisees. This helps immensely in the understanding and development of the business.
  • Attracting customers to an already recognized brand is always more convenient. It saves you all the time and effort of bringing a product or service to peoples’ attention. People are usually more comfortable with brands they are accustomed with.
  • Franchise gives a definite and clear idea of the investment cost. Before you start the business you know the exact level of expenses to expect. This prevents you from bumping into sudden, unforeseen expenditures.
  • Hiring and managing employees is an additional headache. It is the responsibility of a franchise to provide efficient and professional workers, trained to work with that particular brand.
  • Fellow franchisees are available for consultation and advice that helps new franchisees recognize the requirements and policies of the business and also helps in maximizing the success rate of the same.
  • Since a recognized brand is already widely known, it saves you the cost and effort of advertisement. It is the sole responsibility of the franchisor to advertise for the progress and expansion of the business.

Keeping these points in mind, it can be said that if you are tired of working under someone else and aspire to be your own boss, franchising is definitely one of the choices where you can surely have a profit with minimal risk and hassle.

What is the “Power” of your clothes? “I AM KHADI”


Did you know that the clothes we wear are also polluting our rivers, destroying crops, making and dead zones in the seas and most importantly, increasing global warming?

How is this happening?

Clothes and other textiles can affect the environment to varying degrees throughout their life cycles. Before textiles reach the consumer, they have gone through many different chemical processes. They may be treated with chemicals to dye them, make them more hard-wearing or wrinkle-resistant, or less flammable. Some flame retardants that are used in certain textiles contain organic bromine compounds that break down very slowly in the environment, hence last much longer. Some of these chemicals are carcinogenic or may cause harm to children even before birth. Other may trigger allergic reactions in some people.

All textiles processes have an impact on the environment. The industry uses large amounts of natural resources such as water, while many operations use chemical sand solvents. All companies use energy, produce solid, discharge effluent and emit dust, and toxic gases into the atmosphere

The clothes we wear like everything else we use today in the modern day – use power or electricity and also energy – in the making of the thread / yarn, the making of the cloth, packaging, marketing, merchandising until it comes to you…

That would mean, use of gas and coal for making electricity to run the machines, making plastic for packaging and use of petrol for transportation; which in turn means more coal mining, oil drilling, more thermal power plants, or nuclear power plants or large dams to produce more “power” or electricity and to have more “power” or transportation.

And what does all this mean? Increase in Green house Gases and Global Warming.

The greatest problem that each and every one of us is facing today is Global Warming.

The planet is in peril – the green house gases Carbon dioxide and Methane among others are increasing day by day, trapping the sun’s heat on the earth. Thus, the earth is warming up. Our glaciers are melting and If this goes on unchecked very soon, i.e., within the next twenty years or so, our perennial rivers like Ganga, Brahmaputra will dry out. The sea levels are already rising and will rise further submerging the coastal areas. In many parts of india and even in Andhra Pradesh, coastal villages have started to disappear under the sea. Not just this, flash floods have increased and as we saw last year, lakhs of acres of crops were lost under water. If this continues we will be facing a water and food crisis. And future wars will be fought for water and the day may not be far when we see people killing each other for a morsel of food.

So, is there a way out?

Yes, there is – reducing our carbon foot prints – using low energy alternatives – khadi.

Khadi is a totally handmade cloth – right from spinning of the yarn to production of the cloth. Thus, low energy or no energy is used in this entire process.

Besides being eco-friendly, these clothes generate employment. Khadi is one of the three largest Employment generating sectors in india along with agriculture and retail. There is a total of 3 crore people dependent on khadi sector.

Indian khadi fabrics, were extremely famous the world over and were considered the best fabrics the world ever produced. However, today, khadi is not valued by our own people. The market for khadi is shrinking, forcing many skilled craftsmen and women to seek labour work elsewhere and some others, unable to bear the poverty are committing suicides. So, if we switch our choice to khadi, not only do we save these lives, but we can encourage more people to take up this craft.

We, the consumers, have the “power” to charge the situation – to better their lives and to protect our environment and thus, our won future. By using low energy consuming khadi, we reduce the need to produce more electricity, meaning, we need not set up more Power projects, need not displace any more people, need not disturb our environment, nor destroy people’s lives.
