Below, we explain some of the reasons why you should become a part of our stores.

Kitchens are acquiring an increasing importance within homes. Their integration with other spaces, has made furniture become more important and led consumers to demand products of greater quality and better design. The rates of furnishings in homes in the Middle East are still low and show notable growth figures year after year. There is also a significant replacement market, comprised of homes that want to renovate the kitchen.

Our stores make it possible to obtain attractive profit margins and stable sales. In turn, they enable a quick return on investment. All the sales are made to order, therefore the working capital needs of a store are negative and our business model works with zero stock.
