Where did the idea come from?
On a recent trip to Turkey, I bought a pair of Ceyo flipflops. I was so impressed with the quality and comfort that when I got home I tried to source another pair in the UK but I haven't been able to find them online or in shops. They really are a cut above anything else I have worn and for the price, there is nothing to match them. So I thought I would look into importing them to the UK.
Where are we up to?
I have made contact with Ceyo and have received their catalogues and price list. An order will be going in very soon and the 1st delivery will be with us in early 2020.
Our initial plan is to sell their summer lines on eBay but then as things grow to launch our own site (www.theflipflophut.co.uk) and expand the range.
We are currently a small team working out of our small unit in Burton upon Trent. As we grow we will be looking to employ local people to work alongside us in what we believe will be a rapidly growing business.
We have chosen the route of Crowdfunding to part-fund the project. These pre-orders will enable us to get the first order delivered into the UK and as a thank you, we are also offering a 10% discount on all future orders via a laser-cut wooden card which will be personalized with your name and a unique number.
Our ultimate goal is to get an exclusivity agreement and become the sole supplier in the UK.
Thank you for your support!
