A successful formula: our business model and retail franchise opportunities

  1. 1

    An overwhelming passion for fashion

  2. 2

    Our franchisee: our key business partner

  3. 3

    Investing in long-term relationships

  4. 4

    Developing our entrepreneurial spirit to serve customers

  1. Our collections are created to meet the needs of our customers: women, men, teenagers, children. Nothing is more rewarding than creating products that fulfill the wishes and expectations of our customers.

  2. Our company developed thanks to our retail franchising format ‘on a sale-or-return basis’ and to the entrepreneurs who chose our brands to start their business adventure. There are over 150 franchisees in 35 countries with whom we have been building our dream by making theirs come true for more than 30 years. Every day we are ready to listen to them, talk and discuss with them, because at Teddy we think that doing business together is essential, is a key strategy and is rewarding. For us, a franchisee is a key business partner with whom we need to work every day to achieve a common goal.

  3. The family-run model, the great financial position and constant growth, which is self-financed through the provisional net profits reinvested every year, combined with a strong international presence, are the best guarantee for any entrepreneur who aims at doing business with us with a long-term outlook.
    Teddy is a solid business partner also for any real-estate professional: reliability and strength are the features for which Teddy has been well-known for years, in Italy and abroad.

  4. “If you listen to your customers, you’ll never get it wrong”: this is what Vittorio Tadei, founder of Gruppo Teddy, always used to tell us. And we repeat it to ourselves every day making customer-oriented choices, based on customers’ needs, wishes and suggestions.
    What helps us to do this? A corporate culture based on a shared spirit of entrepreneurship and shared leadership, teamwork as well as a strong sense of belonging.
