This group of promotors have a different strategy in business, which applies more to Liquor Retail. The have learned that the more is power in the business to obtain the best from the vendors.

They strongly believe the art of business is not in charging the customer more, but getting the best price from the vendors to attract more customers. Once a happy customer is always a customer forever. The locations are carefully selected to build a permanent customer base.

Based on the above the project have been taken forward to forward with a chain of stores under the brand name ‘JELLOS’ which provides an unique experience to every customer in the neighbourhood, bringing in the product every customer wish for if available in market. They believe that no customer should walk out empty handed on his visit and the choice will be available at the next visit, if the product is legally available.
