New Outlet Opened
Famous International Coffee Chain “Café Coffee day” has finally arrived in Malaysia!
Its first outlet was opened for business on 10th October 2014 at the Lobby of Pearl International Hotel in Old Klang Road, Kuala Lumpur.
Café Coffee day’s outlets are located in Europe, Middle East, India and Malaysia are the first South-East Asian country chosen to spread its wings in this region. The chain has a strong presence in India where it is the largest coffee chain with more than 1,600 branches and it is reputedly the largest coffee chain in India.
Café Coffee day will be operated on a franchise basis in Malaysia. The local franchisee for Malaysia is ONS Ventures Sdn Bhd.
Chairman and Managing Director of ONS Ventures Haji Shahul Hameed said: “We found that coffee culture is still growing in Malaysia, despite so many players already having a strong presence here. We decided to bring Café Coffee day to Malaysia for their proven expertise and organizational structure which we thought would be befitting to Malaysian business scenario”.
Another two outlets, one in NU Sentral Shopping complex and another one in KL Sentral Complex will be opened in next one month.
“We are currently concentrating in Klang Valley to open out outlets where affluent population and a surge in new shopping malls are key factors. We have also finalized another two outlets, one in Shah Alam and another one in Kuala Lumpur. By the year-end we hope to have a total of 5 outlets fully operational. Thereafter, we may consider moving to other parts of the country” Shahul Hameed further said.
“We have assembled an array of coffee blends and foods which we hope will attract Malaysians with discerning tastes. We are fully aware of existing competition waiting for us. But we are confident we will be able to play a significant role in establishing our strong brand presence here” commented Shahul Hameed.
Shahul Hameed also envisaged that over the next 3 years they would open about 30 outlets all over the country.
