“The idea behind Hearty Mart is to create more entrepreneurial avenues for the people associated with us. Having said that, I also believe that the true success of Hearty Mart would be measured only on the basis of its ability to make rural entrepreneurs successful by grooming them and providing them with right technological guidance that can help them run their business efficiently.”
Ethical Code of conduct – believes in following ethical fair practices in all trade aspects, e.g product quality, pricing, training and communication.
Freedom – our complete support mechanism and belief in relationships accounts for a total sustainable model aiding full freedom to our franchisees and helping them achieve complete financial freedom and independence.
It is the above thought that has led to the carving out of a perfect 3 Element Support Mechanism to groom, guide and enable successful entrepreneurs.

Customer handling, record keeping, sourcing and negotiating for new products, training new staff and inputs on marketing and local promotions are just some of the areas that are covered in this intensive franchisee training program.
