Black Canyon Coffee officially opened a franchise on Samsenthai Road in Chanthabouly district, Vientiane, on Thursday.
“It’s an investment of over 10 billion kip by our company,” the Black Canyon Coffee Lao Director Ms Manivone Sitthixay said at the opening ceremony.
Ms Manivone said Black Canyon Coffee Lao is the first restaurant that has acquired the right from the Black Canyon (Thailand) Company; and the Khouanchay Trading Import Export Company is the monopoly operator in Laos.
The restaurant offers coffee, drinks and food that will appeal to both locals and foreigners. It also offers a meeting place for businesspeople.
Mr Saithong said the launch of Black Canyon in Vientiane comes at a good time, as many visitors are expected in Laos this year for Visit Laos Year 2012, various international meetings, and the Asean University Games.
“We will open outlets in all parts of Vientiane in the near future, and in the provinces,” Ms Manivone said. “The operations aim to be in a place or area that will promote tourism in Laos.”
Laos is one of eight countries in which Black Canyon operates, along with Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Myanmar, Dubai and Cambodia “And we will also have services in the Philippines within the next three months,” Mr Pravit said.
“In Laos, Black Canyon uses both Lao and Thai coffee because we plan to market Black Canyon as an Asean coffee in the future,” he added. “We also serve Luang Prabang fried rice at the Black Canyon in Laos. Soon we will add this fried rice to the menu at each country’s franchise.”
