BATA franchise enters Namibia

A world renowned brand with footwear as its core business has made its way into the Namibian market after a successful partnership between Namibian and Zimbabwean business figures who acquired the franchise rights and managed to open BATA Namibia on the 2nd of December last year. “BATA is an international company. We are aware that it is a strong brand in Zimbabwe, and is also  present in Kenya, South Africa, Zambia, Asia (China, India, Indonesia, etc) Europe (Switzerland, France, the Netherlands, etc) and the Americas (Canada, Chile) stated BATA Namibia Manager Thomas Nagombe. “We acquired the franchise from BATA’s International office responsible for the franchises but it is managed and coordinated out of South Africa. As with most franchise arrangements, we source our products through the network established for that purpose by the franchisor” said Nangombe.
