Payless ShoeSource has opened its 100th international franchise in Cirebon, Indonesia. It's the seventh store in that country. The American retailer said the franchise model is the best way for Payless to enter more international markets more quickly. The first franchise opened in 2009 in Kuwait, and there are now Payless franchises in Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Lebanon, Peru, the Philippines, Russia, Israel, Indonesia and Turkey as well. By the end of this year new shops are planned in Egypt, Morocco, Malaysia, Singapore, Jordan and Mexico. It hopes to have 700 franchise stores by 2014.
