Beauty Success, the fourth selective beauty network retailer in France, already operates a dozen stores outside metropolitan France. Without slowing its development in its home country, the company wants to carry on the expansion of its network by focusing on internationalization thanks to its concept, now ready for export.

The partnership with CFAO should enable Beauty Success to open about twenty new stores in the coming years in different countries in sub-Saharan Africa. The shops will be open primarily in shopping centres operated by CFAO in countries such as Cameroon, Congo, Ivory Coast, Gabon, Ghana, Nigeria, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Senegal.

The first beauty shop will open in September in Abidjan, Ivory Coast.

For its international development, the company said it had given priority to “emerging countries recording high growth rates and structuring their retail environment.

Franchises

The company intends to achieve this development in the same way that succeeded in France: by relying on local entrepreneurs interested in the franchise and master-franchise model and with a good knowledge of the perfume industry and beauty salons.

However, the product offer will be adapted to the country’s specificities and to local consumption habits. To ensure the transmission of its know-how, the company will provide the same training than in France, and will also propose intensive training periods in its French sales outlets.
