Oldtown's Unit Inks Deal To Open Outlets In Cambodia

http://www.bernama.com/bernama/v8/bu/ne ... id=1419581


KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 14 (Bernama) -- Oldtown Bhd's wholly-owned unit, Kopitiam Asia Pacific Sdn Bhd (KAP), has inked a deal with Biniton Food & Beverage Co Ltd and the latter's Director and shareholder, Bun Khang, to operate cafe outlets in Cambodia.

In a filing to Bursa Malaysia today, Oldtown said KAP today entered into a master license agreement (MLA) with the two parties to operate the restaurant business under the brand name of "Oldtown White Coffee" in Cambodia.

"The deal also granted sub-licenses to licensees to operate the business in Cambodia," it said.

Oldtown said Biniton Food & Beverage is scheduled to open its first Cambodia outlet by the second quarter of 2018.

"The execution of the MLA is not expected to have any material effect on the earnings or net assets of Oldtown and its subsidiary companies for the financial year ending March 31, 2018," it added.....

I was getting worried that there weren't enough coffee chains. Lucky that is going to be put to rest.

Brown's
Costa
Eric Kayser
Gloria Jean's
Starbucks
Amazon Cafe (must have around 50 new shops in the last year or so)
Coffee Today
Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf
Joma
& all the independents. Where are they gonna find the space?

Could do with a poll. Which is the best tasting and value?. When I was in SR I paid something like $2.50 for a cup of coffee in a Proper coffee shop (in the street with the massage places). Later, found a small kiosk on the street near temple and river. Enjoyed their $1 brew more for the taste.

Sooner or latte, a few will emerge, and the rest will die a slow death

Reminds me of barang bars trying to make money

Amazon seems like hit and miss, far too many, and some may be too close to each other.

I don't like it because it only serve one size coffee, and the serve too small,

Walk in the one in City Mall one morning about 7am, 5 staffs there and no one can find a packet of sugar.

Next time, to different Amazon store nearby, and they said they don't serve hot coffee.

I prefer Brown or others that actually make other food.

Brown seems to have stop expanding.

Coffee is a legal addiction, like alcohol and tobacco (and sex, too).

Customers always want more, and new ones can get hooked.

Yay. Change paradise. Lots of over-caffeinated people.

Then again, wait. Maybe a stimulated hospitality and servicd class is needed.

Put in the IVs. Wake up, Cambodia!

Haha.

Not if there's a fire, not even if you hear the sound of a thud from my home and one week later there's a smell coming from there that can only be a decaying human body and you have to hold a hanky to your face because the stench is so thick that you think you're going to faint.

Even then, don't come knocking...Not for ANY reason.

Oh, tosh.

In moderation, and without much sugar, it's very good for most people.

Don't turn into a Puritan on us now
