Dear sir/madam My name is Estifanos Worku; I am certified management consultant based in Harar. One of my clients is a businessperson engaged in merchandising business who understood unmet demand for petroleum products in his hometown, the town of Kombolcha, eastern hararghie zone of Oromia region, 16 km far from Harar city. Thus, we conducted a situational analysis to identify the extent of unmet demand for petroleum products for vehicles, generating set, and household consumption. There is only a single gas station (total brand) operating in the town with limited capacity to med the growing demand in the area. The town is one of the lucrative business areas with a daily turnover of millions of birr. To this effect, I am preparing a project document to do a franchising business with your company. I appreciate if you can provide us information (guideline)on the requirement to start a petroleum retail business. I can be reached through my telephone: +251 920 457 778. I look forward to receiving your reply. I extend my gratitude for your consideration and prompt reply. With Regards Estifanos Worku
