I have worked as a Carré d'artistes franchisee in Russia for almost four years. It is a wonderful business with an admirable concept and philosophy. Russian consumers really love the idea of the galleries, and the fact that the company is of French origin is very appealing. Our clients are in love with the 'French touch' that creates a special atmosphere in each gallery. Carré d'artistes also demonstrates a very efficient business model; you learn how to work in the art business and you get support from franchisor. This collaboration is essential in developing a sustainable business model.
