Tesco Introduces Tefal’s WiKook

Tesco has announced it is to introduce the WiKook cooking pot from Tefal to its shelves this spring. The scientists at Tefal are set to revolutionise the way people cook as they launch the innovative WiKook, the first ever fast cooker that cooks food up to 25% faster than any other traditional cooking pot.

Tesco Introduces Tefal's WiKook

When closed, the patented Tefal Power Lid locks in heat to accelerate cooking, almost working as a pressure cooker. All customers need to do is simply add the necessary ingredients to the pot, lock in the Tefal Power Lid, turn on the heat and when the time is done have a perfectly cooked meal for up to four people.

The Tefal WiKook fast cooker prepares food at such speed that it retains more vitamins and nutrients for healthier meals. Those who use the new pot can make varied recipes using fish, pasta, meat, rice, soups and even desserts. It also uses 25% less energy than a traditional pot, therefore helping customers to save money on annual gas bills.

Tefal’s WiKook fast cooker is expected to appeal to busy mums and professionals who don’t want to compromise on taste, and want a healthy meal in a short space of time. The Tefal WiKook fast cooker fuses speed and ease in all aspects of cooking so it is a fast cooker by name and by nature.

With its thick aluminium base, the Tefal Wikook fast cooker guarantees even heat distribution and evenly cooked ingredients. It is suitable for all types of hobs, including induction. The Tefal inner and outer non-stick coating also ensures easy cleaning.

The Tefal WiKook fast cooker will be available from Tesco in early Spring and comes with a recipe book.

Snip-its Kids Salon Franchise Presents Unique Opportunity for New Entrepreneurs

As part of an aggressive growth strategy, the children’s hair salon Snip-its (www.snipits.com) is seeking franchisees to open new stores throughout the U.S. Snip-its, already the nation’s fastest growing children’s salon franchise with currently 65 stores in 26 states, will partner with new entrepreneurs and business owners to capture even more of the expanding children’s hair care market.

Snip-its Kids Salon Franchise Presents Unique Opportunity for New Entrepreneurs

Hair care generates an estimated $45 billion annually and is considered a non-cyclical industry – the demand for haircuts, as with goods like utilities and household products is constant and not greatly affected by dips in the economy; a salon business is considered ‘recession-proof’. There are 40 million children in the US, who on average will have their hair cut eight times every year. Within the hair care industry, children’s hair care is the fastest-growing sector, accounting for $5 billion annually.

Franchise businesses are especially appealing in times of high unemployment and slow economic growth. They represent an opportunity for great profits, but with lower risk, owing to the power of an established, loyalty-driven brand, proven industry expertise, and the broad reach of national advertising.

Requiring no previous hair care or cosmetology experience, the Snip-its franchise is ideal for new and first-time business owners. “In fact, we prefer management, general business, or marketing experience to hair care experience,” says Christine Mudd, director of franchise development at Snip-its. ”A passion for the brand, commitment to excellence, desire to succeed, and willingness to learn are all you need. Snip-its provides its franchisees with a proven operating model and business tools to help them succeed.”

The Snip-its brand is unique within the hair care industry. Sporting a distinctive interior design featuring the company’s own cartoon characters and video game stations, Snip-its salons offer a wide range of fun, kid-friendly hair cutting and styling services, spa-style treatments for girls, and a full-line of exclusive hair care products, while also hosting parties and special events.

A visit to Snip-its is a full-on entertainment experience that’s been proven to inspire strong loyalty – over 65% of the company’s customers return every six to eight weeks. “We’re turning what can sometimes be a challenging experience into a fun-filled, entertaining, family adventure,” continued Mudd. “The result is a hair salon no kid can resist and a business model enticing to prospective franchisees.”
