The country is known for its clothing manufacturing all over the world. Moreover, India provides a huge consumer market due to a numerous population and a growing middle class. Obviously there are a lot of clothing franchises in India including domestic companies, international brands, kids clothing, women apparels, men wear stores, etc. Being impacted by social media fashion trends, Indian citizens are willing to wear apparel from known brands. It means that opening own retail outlet instead of buying a clothing store franchise an entrepreneur risks to face a tough competition and find no recognition among customers. Joining a clothing brand franchise helps eliminate the risks, as franchising offers a famous brand name, national or even international promotion, social media marketing strategies, a website and all other perks.
