Suguna Group, India’s largest poultry enterprise, launched its first outlet of a chain of quality chicken retail stores in Kerala under the brand name Suguna Daily Fressh at Erode this week. Spread across 250 square feet, the store retails fresh hygienic nutritious and tender chicken (eight forms of chicken, whole and portioned), specialty eggs (four varieties of value added eggs), sausages and salami. This brings the total to 27 stores including Tamil Nadu and Kerala.
Suguna Daily Fressh is a new shopping concept for purchasing all your home needs of fresh chicken in a hygienic environment with the promise of quality from the house of Suguna. All the products are HACCP certified and adhere to the international standards based on Total Quality Management (TQM) system with strict compliance to hygiene and inspection requirements, and adopting the traditional “Halal” method. The stores retail mutton and a range of Suguna’s soon to be launched heat n’ eat Suguna Home Bites chicken based home meal replacements.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. B. Soundararajan, Managing Director, Suguna Poultry Farm Ltd., said, “For the first time people can buy fresh chicken in a clean and enjoyable ambience with hygienic storage and packing. We plan to open at least 40 outlets in Kerala before the end of this fiscal, and will open 200 stores across South”.
Currently, Suguna has 23 such Daily Fressh stores in Tamil Nadu with the franchisee model. Buoyed by the success of the model in Coimbatore, Suguna decided to set up franchisee owned branded outlets that offer quality products in a clean and modern environment. These stores would be spread across 200 –300 sft space in prime residential areas and will be set up with an investment of about Rs. 6 lakhs.
Suguna is also inviting proposals from prospective franchisees. Suguna will help the franchisees by supplying products, providing marketing support and ensuring guaranteed minimum revenue in the formative years of the venture. Suguna will also invest in training the franchisees and the store workforce to adhere to its hygiene standards.
