The summer of 69’; man walks on the moon, music & love went hand in hand at Woodstock, Doris & Don Fisher open their first store in San Francisco! In the 42 years since we’ve celebrated many milestones, added new brands & grown phenomenally to one of the world’s largest retailers. Our Global brands are: Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, Piper Lime and Athleta. We now have over 180 stores in Europe across our Gap & Banana Republic brands.
Our focuses are pretty simple; customers, creativity, doing what’s right & of course delivering results.
One of our operating channels, Franchise, was created in 2005 opening our first joint partnership Gap store in Singapore in 2006. Since then we have undergone exciting growth with both Gap and BR brands and now operate in 43 countries as diverse as Kazakhstan, Egypt & Guam. 2012 marked the opening of our 250th store in Panama, with many more planned.
As we continue to grow and move our brands globally, the need for great talent is fundamental. As part of this growth strategy the Operations Development Manager role has arisen. The Gap Franchise Business today extends to 43 markets across Latin America, Asia, Europe & the Middle East.
