Bang & Olufsen Franchise Opportunity
WHY BANG & OLUFSENBuild your business on our brand
A BRAND DRIVEN BY PASSIONPeter Bang and Svend Olufsen began a modest production of radios in 1925. Working in the attic of the Olufsen manor in northwest Denmark, their dream was to create a brand built on innovation, quality, design, and performance. More than 90 years later, our products are still at the heart of our brand. But our continued success is due to our independent network of retail partners—those who share our passion at more than 700 stores worldwide.
