The stores are a result of a franchise deal with Chongqing, China-based Budy (Chongqing) Import & Export Trading Co. Ltd., which is owned by local entrepreneur Anderson Wang. The five-year deal with an option for renewal will bring 27 Raoul-branded boutiques to such cities as Shanghai, Beijing and Chengdu by 2017.
