Bata 500th Franchise Store in India


Bata India has announced the opening of its 500th Franchise store in India

An important milestone. In order to celebrate this milestone and show its appreciation to all of its Indian partners, Bata launched a CGI Out-of-Home (OOH) display celebrating the “Bata 500 Franchise Store Family in India.”

Bata India’s retail network now totals over 2,150 locations across the country, including a variety of Company-Owned Company-Operated (COCO), Franchise, and Shop-in-Shop (SIS) outlets. The 500th Franchise store opened its doors recently in Bangalore.

“We are extremely thankful for the continued trust and constant backing of our Franchise partners who have been important in our journey to reach this milestone,” stated Abhinav Sharan, Head of Franchise Business at Bata India Limited. The opening of our 500th franchise store shows our unwavering commitment to developing tomorrow’s leaders and reinforces Bata’s long-standing commitment to India. We will carry on our expansion adventure with our esteemed partners to make sure that Bata’s quality and elegance are available to consumers across the nation.

A key component of Bata’s expansion strategy, the franchise model has contributed to growth and accessibility in many Indian locations. The brand’s adaptable strategy has made it easier for it to enter new areas and given local partners business prospects. The high rate of return among partners, many of whom have built multiple stores with Bata, is strong evidence of the program’s success.
