Do you live and breathe all things beauty-related, along with having a good head for business? 27Pinkx, a franchise created with the simple mission of bringing a little piece of Hollywood luxury to South African women, is looking for energetic, performance-motivated self-starters to come on board as the brand expands.
Established in 2012, 27Pinkx was originally launched as a make-up accessory online store by sisters Anjum and Khatija Ahmed. As demand grew, they extended their range to include skin care, makeup and hair care products, and today their main activities include the retail of a collection of products, as well as a provision of beauty treatments, including facials, waxing, pedicures, manicures and hair styling. The company’s brands are sold online, as well as from 27Pinkx’s salons, and its beauty therapy comprises various specialised beauty treatments of international repute not previously available in South Africa.
A full, turnkey setup including training and stock is R2 349 000, excluding VAT, plus an additional R150 000 for operating capital. Franchisees and their staff will receive three week’ initial training, which comprises both the theoretical and practical aspects of the business, including the point-of-sale system, operations, customer relations, administration and other detail. Ongoing training, support, assistance and advice is on hand as the business develops and in order to stay abreast of developments and changes in the industry. The franchisor will also support franchisees’ marketing efforts and, in addition to regular editorial advertisements in various publications and promotions, 27Pinkx very successfully makes use of its own brand ambassador, namely Kefilwe Mabote.
“We are looking for committed franchisees who possess exceptional communication skills and who have the ability to identify customer needs and make customer service excellence a top priority,” says Anjum Ahmed. “They also need to be able to retain good product knowledge and achieve sales budgets.”
