CK KumaravelCo-founder of Groom India Salon & Spa Pvt Ltd
Destined to be an entrepreneur with a difference, Mr C. K. Kumaravel is the co-founder of Groom India Salon & Spa Pvt Ltd, the brand that owns India’s No 1 salon chain Naturals. The first Naturals salon was started in 2000 by his wife, Ms K Veena, and the brand now has 650 + salons across India and has been hailed as a game changer in the salon and franchising industry. What gives him immense happiness today is not the magical number of salons, but the fact that Naturals has created 400 women franchise partners, trained over 10,000 staffs and serviced 40+ lakh happy customers in the last 18 years. CKK believes in the power of women and encourages them to be financially independent and has a dream to eradicate the word ‘housewife’ from the English dictionary.
In fact, CKK and Veena have redefined and revolutionized the salon and franchising industry by constantly innovating and offering services that delight customers. They have recently started the Naturals Training Academy which will function as a launch pad for young people looking to make a mark in the beauty industry.
Naturals is today India’s No.1 salon chain and the dream is to make it the world’s No.1 salon brand in the near future. Over the last few years, CKK is a speaker at various forums and enjoys motivating students and youth of our country to take up entrepreneurship.
