Coffee Chain Figaro (Philippine) to Bring its Franchise to Fiji
24 Apr 2013 - A leading Philippine coffee company has set its sights on establishing its international franchise in Fiji next year.
This was after its successful opening in China, Saudi Arabia, Papua New Guinea and Malaysia.
Figaro, the leading Philippine coffee company plans to complete its 100 stores before the end of the year and was already focusing on Fiji's market.
Franchise manager Mike Barret said Fiji was the perfect location for Figaro's next branch.
"Fiji locals and expats will soon enjoy Figaro's wide array of beverage and food products from specialty and traditional European coffee, ice blended concoctions to delectable pastries, gourmet sandwiches, pasta, personal sized pizza and salad greens for the health buffs," Mr Barret said.
He said Figaro's European store concept and design would soon be built in Fiji.
"Figaro will let Fiji experience the European coffee shop ambiance with a very relaxed atmosphere conducive to short business meetings, social gatherings or simply having your lunch, dinner and night cap."
He said Figaro planned to offer a semi-fine dining style of service to expats and Fiji locals introducing Philippines' love for coffee from the crop to the cup.
"It is Figaro's vision to share the passion and love of the Philippine coffee worldwide in its continued global expansion tapping also the Philippines' locally produced coffee beans to better serve its customers.
"Sharing the passion to love coffee from the crop to the cup, Figaro had established the coffee passion in the Philippines and in other parts of the world to redefine coffee experience."
A necessity for people on-the-go, Mr Barret said coffee had grown to be more than just a breakfast beverage as Figaro continued to share the heritage of coffee-making in different parts of the globe. The company boasts to be the best choice for a franchise because they provided continuous comprehensive training and marketing support to all its franchisees.
