The UK’s only made-to-measure tailoring franchise, Suit the City, has set its sights on international growth.

Suit the City will be attending the forthcoming British & International Franchise Show at Olympia, with a view to recruiting abroad as well as at home in the UK.

According to managing director, Carol Rawson, the move is driven by increasing levels of enquiries from individuals across Europe and the US, this has convinced the directors to move plans forward to develop an international network. 

“Until now, we have focused our efforts on building our UK franchise network,” Carol says. “Of course, this remains a key goal for us, but we have decided to respond positively to the rising number of enquiries that we are receiving from other countries.

“We are currently in the process of researching a potentially lucrative overseas market for a prospective franchisee, with a view to realising the opportunity.

“High quality British tailoring is a service in demand well beyond the borders of the UK and our decision to attend the British & International Franchise Show in March for the first time is the first step along the way to realising our wider vision for the future of Suit the City.”

Suit The City franchisees are not tailors, (all production is carried out by expert tailors in Europe), but they are business people that have excellent relationship marketing skills, who provide an exclusive design consultancy service to a discerning and affluent customer base. As they do not operate from stores, overheads and initial investment is much lower than fashion retail franchises, and the high value goods mean that potential profits are substantial.

Suit the City sets its sights on international development

Suit The City will be on stand J20 at the British & International Franchise Show, held at Olympia, 13-14th March.
