India’s Gitanjali Group – owner of brands such as Rosato and Alfred Terry – is planning to increase its retail operations in the country, opening 25 large-format, multi-franchisee stores by the end of 2012.

It last week opened its largest-ever franchise space in Hyderabad, with more than 9,000 items of jewellery for sale, while the company currently has 75 franchisee stores which account for 80% of its retail sales in India.

Gitanjali Group is said to have grown 70% in year-on-year for the past three and year and hopes to continue this rate of expansion for the next three to five years.
