On the latest episode of Carte Blanche, popular beauty salon Tammy Taylor once again became the center of attention when their shenanigans got exposed. According to the investigative reality show, Tammy Taylor USA allegedly canceled the Master License Agreement with Tammy Taylor South Africa.
Their investigation then lead them to discover that they are allegedly selling fake products to its customers as they no longer receive stock from Tammy Taylor in the USA. It is reported that the franchise is using two printing companies in Midrand, one of which is revealed to be Marvel Group.
“Basically, what we do is, they [Tammy Taylor SA] send us the artwork and we print directly onto the bottles,” said the owner of Marcel Group.
The investigator then pointed out that on the bottle it says the products are manufactured in the USA, and he denied this and said they are definitely not.
Tammy Taylor is owned by reality TV star Mel Viljoen who appears on Die Real Housewives Van Pretoria and her husband Peet Viljoen. They are accused of copyright infringement as their contract was allegedly canceled with the USA branch. However, the couple still claim they have rights to the franchise.
This is not the first time the company has been exposed. However, despite the drama, people still continue to purchase franchises.
Social media has been ripping the owners to pieces since the episode premiered. Have a look…
Earlier this year, Lerato Kganyago announced that she had acquired a Tammy Taylor franchise in Groenkloof, Pretoria, but it had to close down.
“It’s been a truly exciting journey and we would have not come this far without your support. Serving you has been nothing but an absolute pleasure,” she wrote.
“With that in mind, it does, however, sadden us to inform that Tammy Taylor Nails Groenkloof will officially closing its branch operations at 57 George Storrar Drive, Groenkloof Pretoria as of 31st March 2022,” she continued.
