Own a Franchise
The fundamental idea behind the ECL franchise mechanism, was to foster entrepreneurship create entrepreneur opportunities for people from all walks of life and form a channel for social change. This ideology led to the insight to create budding entrepreneurs out of energetic business-minded individuals, who had the desire but lacked the guidance and the resources to start on their own. Their alignment with ECL through the low-cost franchise system supported their requirements of capital, access to technology, equipment and knowledge. This ignited their pursuit for enterprise and transformed ECL into a household name. It also created uncharted employment avenues for the downtrodden and empowered innumerable first-time, independent and unorganized entrepreneurs.
It was an extraordinary vision of ‘sharing of wealth’ that went on to extend entrepreneurship opportunities for urban and rural population as well. This was achieved by setting-up at least one franchisee, at subsidized rates, the scope of this franchise chain never ends. ECL is now running a special project to facilitate subsidized outlets for Army people who suffer injuries at work.

DON’T TAKE OUR WORD
Today, I am an owner of three franchises and planning to add a few more. I am a proud ECLian and a multimillionaire. I thank God and ECL for giving this shy boy the opportunity to lead life with dignity. I am proud to say that today I am capable of shaping the career of the needy and the underprivileged in the society, but not without the support of DTDC.
ECL gave me a new life and a new identity. I wish more and more people join ECL and help develop our society. Mine is an ashes-to-success story. Thank God for this shelter called ECL.
If not for ECL, I would have been doing a 9 to 5 job and whiling away time daydreaming. Today, I am a proud entrepreneur. Thank you ECL, for realizing the dreams of thousands like me and making us stand out amongst the millions who are simply daydreamers.
