Branding with an Above Market Pricing Strategy needs to focus on a five-star image with luxury, status and prestige. Every aspect of the company from the name, logo, tagline, website, social media, content along with facility location and customer experience needs to support this Above Market Pricing Strategy.

It is expensive to enter this market and maintain this market position.  The market for this brand is smaller than the Below or At Market Pricing Strategy.   Only enter this market if the capital is available to open and sustain it.
