Oscar Wilde, Charles Dickens, Beau Brummell, Lord Byron and Frank Sinatra’s favourite barbershop - Truefitt & Hill, a company brought to India by the Lloyds Luxuries Ltd., which has acquired the Master Franchise License for not just India but also Nepal, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Myanmar and Vietnam, is now poised to enter the Sri Lankan market and open luxurious men’s grooming barbershops across these countries.
Established in 1805, Truefitt & Hill is a Royal Warrant Holder of Appointment to Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh and has had the privilege of being in continuous service to the British Royal Family throughout the past two centuries.
Started by Istayak Ansari and Krishna Gupta in 2014, Lloyds Luxuries Ltd aims at creating an atmosphere of total relaxation and ultimate comfort for their male guests. Speaking on the occasion, Istayak Ansari and Krishna Gupta, Directors of Lloyds Luxuries Ltd. excitedly said: “After the successful opening of this international barber shop in Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore, we are very eager to expand in Sri Lanka and now looking for suitable partners to enter into franchise and distribution agreements in Sri Lanka and extend exclusive rights for this territory.”
Katie Broughton from Truefitt & Hill said: “I understand that Sri Lanka have considerable luxury markets and since Truefitt is positioned at the pinnacle of male grooming and is widely considered as the most prestigious barbershop in the world, it makes a lot of sense for us to enter these markets.” “We are also looking for experienced partners to distribute our famous fragrances and grooming products, which are currently sold across the world from the very best retail stores, for example, such as Harrods and Fortnum & Mason in London,” she added.
