We have planned to open a dealership of Royal Enfield. It is a British owned company. Their legacy is reflected in the company logo a cannon, and their motto, "Made Like A Gun“ which depicts endurance and craftsmanship of the product. Incidentally the logo on left is of original Royal Enfield Company reflects their background in weapons manufacturing.
Royal Enfield is the oldest motorcycle company in the world still in production and Bullet is the longest production run model since inception. George Townsend set up the business in 1851 manufacturing components of cycle like saddles and forks later on manufacturing bicycles and quadricycle by 1890s. Albert Eadie and Robert Walker Smith took over the company in the year 1896. The first Royal Enfield motorcycle was built in 1901. In 1955, Enfield Cycle Company partnered with Madras Motors in India in forming Enfield of India, based in Chennai, and started assembling the 350cc Royal Enfield Bullet motorcycle in Madras. In 1994 Enfield India was bought over by Eicher Motors Limited.
1. Franchises have a higher rate of success than start-up businesses. 2. You as a franchisee don’t have to spend on marketing and promotion activities as the parent company does it for themselves. 3. You don't necessarily need business experience to run a franchise. Franchisors usually provide the training you need to operate their business model. 4. . Franchises often have an established reputation and image, proven management and work practices, access to national advertising and ongoing support.
The main reason behind choosing Royal Enfield franchisee is because of its phenomenal growth in year 2016 compared to 2015 which was 35% all over India. In 2015 3,54,025 Enfield’s were sold, this number immensely spiked to 4,77,688 in 2016. (Source- Auto.Ndtv.com/news/royal-enfield). Vast Market – 180 Dealers, 1oo Authorized Service Centers in India and also has roots in England and their business is spread in major countries like USA, Japan, UAE, Germany, UK, France and many others. The brand image transformation has been successfully carried over by Indian owners after the company exited UK market back in 1967 to such a extend that Royal Enfield is now blindly known as “Indian origin” company. Profitable due to huge fan following which stands by it due to its Rock Solid Product.
