Questions on Starting a Havaianas Flip Flop Store

Licensees do not need to have specific experience in the retail footwear industry; we look for candidates who have solid business management and supervisory skills, and who will commit to upholding Havaianas brand standards in their locations. We are seeking well-capitalized investors who will have the means to invest in and support one or multiple stores clustered in targeted territories.
Licensees will be required to purchase and maintain a representative assortment and adequate levels of inventory to successfully operate the store and represent the Havaianas brand. Purchasing guidelines will be determined for each licensing contract, based on territory, location size, and other factors. Licensees will be required to provide financial reports, full visibility to sales financial data, and other information about their store business. As with any new business venture, it’s important that you have the capital required to adequately fund your new business.
We do not charge fees above and beyond the purchase of Havaianas exclusive products, which are available to licensees at wholesale prices. You’ll have access to branded products including flip flops, sandals, footwear and accessories; support items, such as consumables, point-of-sale literature and promotional materials are also available to licensees.
We do not offer direct financing to licensees. We may be able to provide references to qualified financing or lending resources, on a case-by-case basis.
The initial term of your license agreement is three years, with an option to renew after the initial term.
