Have a cuppa on me....

.


What comes to mind when you see establishments like Starbucks, Gloria Jean or Coffee Bean?

That’s right! A successful multi million dollar business having a global presence that consistently serves fine, quality coffee. Companies like these only buy the finest coffee beans directly from planters in South America and Indonesia, roast them in their highly protective roasting plants to ensure nothing but the best results.

Inspired by successful entrepreneurs like Howard Schultz,CEO of Starbucks, our friend Sengjai opened his first kopitiam…

A non believer of fanciful titles such as ‘baristas’, Sengjai and his international crew from Indonesia, Myamar and Bangladesh usually called themselves ‘1 leg kick’.


Business soon grew and he opened another outlet…with added products...KAYA TOASTS!


Taking the bold steps going regional…his first international outlet in Punjab. I think it’s called Ah Singh Café.


Competitive Advantage of Sengjai's Kopitiam vs. Starbucks


Gone are the days where he was constantly exposed to occupational hazards from a perpetually PMS lady boss…



…or the times when he only had bones to chew on.


This is another successful enterprising ‘don’t care, die die must try’ story. We are truly proud of him! Have a cuppa...
