England Optical might not be a good franchise opportunity if you are in the urban cities. This is because the optical market has been growing by leaps and bounds lately especially with more affordable brands that provide quick and cheaper products.
Unless you are ready to compete with the cheaper brands, this more expensive service might be challenging to maintain.
Among the Top 3 Optical brands
The England Optical Group is one of the most established optical retail shops in Malaysia. Unknown to many, the brand has been around for more than 35 years now where its first outlet was actually set up in 1979.
The outlet was the brainchild of Dato Dr Chin See Keat who opened the store in Sungei Wang Plaza. Today, the England Optical shop is renowned for its range of high quality vision products which has already grown to more than 131 outlets around the region.
In Malaysia alone, there are 120 England Optical outlets while the brand has grown exponentially to China and Cambodia while there are plans for other countries around the region as well. It was in 1998 when England Optical ventured into the franchising model which makes it possible for anyone to operate their own optical store.
There is no easier way to start operating your own optical store without needing any experience as you will be accorded with the training and expertise.
Starting this business is very easy as you will be able to leverage on a brand name which is already very well established and marketed under a centralized department. Furthermore, England Optical has a steady flow of customers and following who have trusted the brand for many years and even generations.
The franchise fee to start this business is RM50,000 while you will need about RM600,000 as the initial investment that include renovation, stock and inventory and other areas as well as a RM1,000 monthly royalty fees required.
