Dubai-based building materials company, Danube Group, has announced its plans to search for franchise partners in Africa.

The main countries the firm is targeting are Ethiopia, Kenya, and Nigeria.

Danube is already selling in those markets, but sees franchising as a viable expansion for the future, strengthening its presence on the continent.

“We are targeting the African market. We already have a franchise partner in Tanzania, so now we are looking for similar partners in the other African countries,” commented Anis Sajan, Danube Managing Director, according to Construction Week.
