We are looking for experienced, passionate and values-driven retailers to join our Franchise Community. We operate a multi-channel business, underpinned by the triple bottom line approach, which supports our commitment to fight for a fairer and more beautiful world.

We are an activist Brand and our customers are smart, ethically-engaged women who love our products because of their natural ingredients, efficacy and environmental credentials. Their connection to the Brand, through our stores, online and across social media is based on our ethical approach to business and potential partners will relish the opportunity to actively engage with the issues important to our customers.

*The triple bottom line (TBL) is a framework or theory that recommends that companies commit to focus on social and environmental concerns just as they do on profits. The TBL posits that instead of one bottom line, there should be three: profit, people and the planet. A TBL seeks to gauge a corporation's level of commitment to corporate social responsibility and its impact on the environment over time.

Greece is the first franchise market in the history of The Body Shop that has been operating since 1978. It was one sunny afternoon back in 1976, in Portobello, that I first met The Body Shop's founder, Anita Roddick and her husband Gordon, while painting the facade of their store. I never thought that this unexpected acquaintance would evolve into a lifelong relationship and a highly successful commercial one.

I was inspired by Anita Roddick's vision and passion to create the finest quality beauty, skincare and bodycare products using the best and purest natural raw materials from all over the world. Whilst at the same time, helping and offering employment to underprivileged people living in those deprived areas. Having already been inspired by her vision, and foreseeing the emerging trend of nature-inspired and cruelty-free cosmetics, I decided to embark on this journey.

For 40 years now, The Body Shop is a living legend with an impeccable philosophy that fights to protect the world, the animals, the people and the planet as one big family. Throughout this journey, we have lived many unforgettable lifetime experiences and led pioneering campaigns that changed the world.

This is an ongoing journey that we give our heart to everyday, forever.
