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...
