Our leasing team decides where the best location for the shop will be.

70% of our current franchisees have extensive knowledge and experience in the hospitality industry. They have chosen to join our franchise and adopt our system to grow further within the industry. The core values of our system include:

  • Brand recognition
  • Lease negotiation: we are able to receive prime locations and competitive rent prices due to our portfolio.
  • Consistent and quality product supply.
  • Training and quality control
  • Trend reading and development
