French kitchen manufacturer Mobalpa has started 2018 in style by opening its 10th franchise showroom in Reading.
With a £300K investment, Mobalpa Reading is the latest store to join the growing network. Based on Watlington Street, the 170sqm showroom features seven kitchen, bathroom, wardrobes and living displays. Designed to display a modern way of living, the space has open-plan areas, storage solutions and finish, colour and handle selections displayed in a real setting.
Owned by Canadian entrepreneur Abbas Twaij, Mobalpa Reading provides a professional kitchen, bathroom and living furniture design and installation service, with full project management. With a background in construction, project management and property development, Abbas and his team will be offering consumers the latest in kitchen and living design.
Franchisee, Abbas, said: “I’m looking forward to sharing Mobalpa’s quality ranges with Reading; we’ve had a great couple of weeks meeting people and discussing design. The showroom is laid out so customers can get a real feel of the kitchens and our different offerings; they can test out functionality and inspect various finishes. It’s a hands-on experience.
“I chose Mobalpa to develop a business in the UK due to the excellent product range and the level of support. The management team dedicated to UK are always available to help and are very attentive.”
Kyle Whittle, Head of UK, at Mobalpa, commented: “We’re delighted to welcome Abbas and his team to the Mobalpa network and are very excited to be celebrating our tenth showroom. 2018 is set to be an exciting year for us so and opening in Reading has been a great way to start it and continue sharing our French kitchen furniture with new customers.
Mobalpa is planning further growth across the UK in 2018, the Reading showroom joins a franchise network of showrooms in London, the South East, West Yorkshire and a pilot store in Warrington, Cheshire.
