Cafe Coffee Day in Pakistan

India's biggest coffee cafe chain opened its first cafe in Pakistan's commercial capital of Karachi. Café Coffee Day's (CCD) first outlet has opened for business in Karachi's Zamzama Commercial Area, famous for its designer outlets and vibrant cafe cultur

Within the next 12 months, CCD plans to open four more cafes in Karachi and expand into Lahore and Islamabad. CCD is planning 25 cafes in Pakistan over the next few years. CCD's entry into Pakistan is through the franchise route.

CCD now has 364 cafes in India and three abroad - two in Vienna and one in Karachi. While Europe will be the biggest region for CCD's expansion plans abroad, Pakistan could over the next few years have more CCD outlets than any other foreign country. CCD is a division of the Amalgamated Bean Coffee Trading, a Rs 500-crore fully-integrated conglomerate which not just grows and exports coffee beans but retails it in a packaged powder form and in the cafe format. CCD is looking at 512 cafes in India by mid-2007 and acquisitions in Europe.
