Established in 2017, and headquartered in Hangzhou City, Zhejiang Province, Jiuzi Holdings, Inc., through its affiliated operating entities, franchises and operates retail stores under brand name “Jiuzi”, which sell new energy vehicles, or NEVs, in third-fourth tier cities in China. Almost all of the NEVs we sell are battery-operated electric vehicles. We also sell a few plug-in electric vehicles upon demand from vehicle buyers.
We have 31 operating franchise stores and one company-owned store in China as of April 2021. We entered the industry at a relatively early point and have gradually developed brand awareness through marketing and promotional events, and consumer acceptance due to our competitive pricing and large selections of NEVs in third-fourth tier cities. We received “2018 Zhejiang Business New Project” from Zhejiang Province Trade and Business Industry Association in 2018, and “Best Investment Potential” award from Leading Capital Summit for Mid to Small Business in 2019. We have a large number of franchisees and strong customer demand, which add to our leverage over supply chains in terms of selections and pricing. Our franchise stores have more space (5,000-12,000 square feet) compared to our competitors and we have a wide range of business partners, both of which help us provide better customer experiences; and the cost of launching a new franchisee is relatively low as compared to traditional 4S stores (4S refers to sales, service, spare parts and services), and it is easier to expand our franchise stores to cover geographical areas and lower the advertisement cost for our franchisees. 4S stores generate most of their profits from after-market services and require higher initial investment as compared to our franchise stores. In comparison to traditional 4S stores, our franchisees are also able to carry multiple brands of NEVs.
We source NEVs through more than twenty NEV manufacturers, including BYD, Geely, and Chery, as well as battery/component manufacturers such as Beijing Zhongdian Boyu, Shenzhen Jishuchongke and Youbang Electronics which focus on manufacturing charging piles, and Guoxuan Gaoke, and Futesi in battery production. On the capital side, we introduce franchisees to various capital platforms including Beijing Tianjiu Xingfu Control Group and Qinghua Qidi Zhixing, through which our franchisees and their vehicle buyers can obtain financing. Our business partners help us in providing a variety of products and extend our geographic reach.
