Nick Candy to follow in Donald Trump's footsteps for global expansion by licensing name
In true Donald Trump style, luxury property developer Nick Candy is planning to launch a big global expansion by licencing his brand name Candy & Candy.
The firm behind One Hyde Park is planning to create landmark residential developments and luxury branded residences in new locations such as Mumbai, Singapore, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Beijing, Shanghai, Bangkok, Moscow, St Petersburg, Saudi Arabia and Melbourne.
Speaking to The Times, Candy said that he was following in the footsteps of Donald Trump “who was doing this [franchising his name and brand] years ago”.
“The Candy & Candy brand has long been associated with the world’s most luxurious real estate and after 15 years in design we are now ready to take the brand global and deliver the Candy & Candy standard of luxury living in other major cities around the world,” Candy said in a statement.
“We will work with carefully selected partners on specific projects from multiple unit developments to resorts and residences, which will deliver on our core values of the best location, quality and design, and most importantly that allow us to ensure product quality and the highest operating standards.”
