  1. Stаr Unіtеd

Star United supermarket 

Due to the brand popularity of supermarkets such as arpico, Crgills food city, it is very difficult for a individual supermarket to survive specially when big brand opens a location in their area.

If any of these big brands opens a new store, it is not required to introduce that store the customers because they have a such huge brand popularity.  Since consumers know the brand and trust they will flock in the store even though it is newly opened on special promotions were nto carried out in the area.

You may have heard  old supermarkets in Sri lanka such as Sentra, Kings, Dhanasiri, Dahamco , Park and Shop. But all those supermarekets were closed down due the fact their brand naems were not popular as brands such as Laugfs and Arpico.

As a solution for the above problem Ceylon Busienss Limitted start a franchise based retail chain named Star United. So they will spend brand building so that any individual opening a new store doesn’t have to worry about marking their store. Supermarket will be operated by an individual but all the support will be provided by the CBL.  In addition to brand new CBL will provide the supermarket preparation of categories, operational knowhow etc.  the owner of the retail has to bear the price for rennovation as required by CBL.

Now there close to 40 branches of Star united stores are distributed all around the Sri Lanka.
