Zeithaml (2010, p.12) defined a brand as a “ name, term, sign, symbol, or design, or a combination of them intended to identify the goods and services of one seller or group of sellers and differentiate them from those of competitors.” In simple words, the sole objective of any branding strategy is to develop the distinguishable identity for the products and services being offered by businesses. By executing branding strategy, marketers can explore the variety of benefits such as 1- acting as mean differentiator among parent company products and other available competitive products, 2- highlighting the unique value proposition of the products/services being offered under the brand, 3- generating awareness regarding product/service offering of the parent company and 4- increasing customer trust (Brakus, Schmitt and Zarantonello, 2009). Carroll and Ahuvia (2006) pointed out that branding strategy is executed by marketers to create two key critical success factors such as brand experience and brand equity. .
