Anastasia Vasilkova, Development Director of TM Choupette, took part in the business meeting "Opportunities for trade, economic and business cooperation with Nigeria". The event took place on June 2, 2022 at the council of the all-Russian public organization "Business Russia".
“We have received a very keen interest in our products, despite the fact that children's clothing is a rare product category for export,” says Anastasia Vasilkova. “I am sure that with the help of the Trade Representation of the Russian Federation we will be able to hold constructive negotiations with interested parties.”
The business meeting was attended by the Ambassador of Nigeria in the Russian Federation, Abdullahi Shehu. He was delighted with Choupette products and noted that such a brand is exactly what their country lacks.
The Choupette brand is one of the few that have already taken the first steps towards the Nigerian market: in November 2021, Choupette took part in the LAGOS INTERNATIONAL TRADE FAIR 2021 and also conducted market research.

“We are successfully developing in Kuwait on various sales channels, such as a mono-brand store and website, the Brandatt marketplace, and now we have a corner in a well-known network in the Middle East,” says Kuwait partner Talal Malallah. - We plan to continue and expand our presence: we are very interested in the UAE as one of the promising markets. I want to note the excellent work of the Choupette team. As a franchisee of the brand, I fully rely on their retail competencies - together we have achieved great success in six months.”
Choupette franchise owes its success to a ready-made business model that was tested by time. This is confirmed not only by stores around the world, but also by numerous awards. This year, Choupette took first place in Businessmens.ru's Top 500 Best Franchises of 2022 in the kids-wear category.
“Choupette vividly demonstrates the combination of product quality, a proven business model and a competent management approach - these qualities once again confirm the success of Russian franchising at the international level,” comments Vladislav Belyavtsev, founder of FranchGroup and franchising expert. - Congratulations on another award!
