US fashion retailer NexCen Brands has introduced a Spanish-language version of its NexCen Franchise Portal Web site, which was launched earlier this year.

The company said that developing the bilingual Web portal was part of NexCen's ongoing commitment to attracting diverse franchisees.

"We recognise that our brands have a truly global appeal," said Chris Dull, president of NexCen Franchise Management, the franchising subsidiary of NexCen Brands. "Creating an equally seamless version of our existing Web portal for Spanish-speaking visitors is a natural next step in connecting and communicating with potential franchisees."

The new Spanish-language Web portal displays global opportunities for becoming a franchisee with the firm. Visitors to the Web portal can also sign up for NexCen franchise events and seminars, as well as NexCen's social network and mailing list.

NexCen owns a portfolio of franchise brands that includes two retail franchise concepts - TAF and Shoebox New York.
