Our strengths

Being part of FBD Group means benefiting from the experience and strengths of a large, international group. It also means benefiting from our tools, organisation and from dedicated professionals to improve the client experience on every levels. 

Everyday support

Each day is an important step before the store opening or during operation, and our teams of professionals are present to answer any questions you could have, establish tools, processes and targets. 

We'll be with you at all stages, because your success is our primary mission, and we take the time to explain all the aspects to you, whether they are financial, communication, digital, or business issues that can affect you. It's a relationship of confidence and sharing which is established between the group, the brand and our supporters. 

Network animation

As a pillar of our support, the animation of our network works just like a dedicated coach for you. With their external point of view, they analyse and consult our partners and teams on a daily basis. This is also a favoured point of contact to discuss items to set up, whether this is in store or part of the network and the Central Office  

Dedicated professionals

Our dedicated team who are true professionals in their area will inspire you with the confidence to join us. Whatever the product, the marketing, or the animation, each service works 100% for the satisfaction of its partners. The combined services of the FBD group also make it possible to capitalise on our economy of scale and to benefit from high-end tools (CRM, Digital service and Ecommerce).
