    BANGALORE: India's biggest
    coffee-cafe chain Cafe Coffee
    Day (CCD) opened its first cafe
    in Pakistan's commercial
    capital of Karachi on
    Wednesday. CCD's first outlet has opened for business in
    Karachi's Zamzama
    Commercial Area, famous for
    its designer outlets and
    vibrant cafe-culture. 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. "We feel that an Islamic
    country with a booming
    economy like Pakistan has
    great potential for
    consumption of non-alcoholic
    brews," Cafe Coffee Day director Naresh Malhotra said
    here on Thursday. CCD's entry into Pakistan is
    through the franchise route.
    "We have tied up with a
    leading industrial house
    owned by a reputed business
    family. I cannot tell you who it is as the announcement will
    be made in Pakistan by the
    group who is our master-
    franchisee for our expansion
    plans there. The baristas —
    those who brew and serve the coffee — are all from —
    Pakistan and have come here
    for training," Mr Malhotra said. Cafe Coffee Day 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. Asked whether Coffee Cafe
    Day would be looking at
    other neighbouring countries,
    Malhotra says: " Our focus will be on Pakistan
    which we feel is a far more
    challenging market in terms
    of risks and opportunities. The
    area where we have opened
    our first cafe in Karachi is familiar to me since I have
    stayed in a guest-house there
    while working for Sheikh
    Bukhatir, the man who
    brought cricket to Sharjah."
    Familiarity breeds content and expansion!

    I never understood the allure of drinking expensive coffee in an air conditioned shop when you can have much better coffee at 1/10 the price outside at a South Indian Coffee Shop or Indian Coffee house.
