November cheered us up with good results in the category of sales like-for-like. And so, in november of this year we registered a growth of 15.82% comparing to the last year, this being the best indicator in 2017, until now. The graphic and other KPIs you can see in the infographic below.
From the chapter ”Development”:
- we found space for a new coffee shop together with our existing partner in Arad (Romania). The first Tucano Coffee was opened in Arad on the 16th of June 2016.
- we found a new partner in Krasnodar (Russia) and other two, who want to open coffee shops in Romania, probably in Sibiu and Oradea.
Furthermore, we set the development strategy for 2018, where we included the goal to expand our chain to 35 coffee shops, which means 20 new openings. Geographically, we concentrate on the CIS countries, Eastern and Central Europe. In Europe, the next year, we plan to open coffee shops in some new countries: Germany, Cyprus, Netherlands and Great Britain.
On the map everything looks like this:
Also in November we started the work on the new package for the coffee beans. We want to have a more solid and good looking one. Probably we will stop at one of the shapes BOX POUCHES or QUADROSEAL BAGS from Dutch Coffee Pack. Here are the first ideas from our designer, Egor 🙂
Aaaah! and I almost forgot, on the 25th of November we had the Grand Opening in Bishkek. It was very beautiful, but as we say, better see it once yourself, than to hear a thousand times. Enjoy the three minutes of video 😉
And I present you the traditional infographic. We mostly, follow the dynamic of the sales comparing to the previous year. On the graphic you can see, that the good results start from May and, apparently, keep the good track until now. We will make all the possible to continue it the same way.
Even if the ”digest” is for the month of November, now, when I’m writing it, is the 21st of December and before the holidays we want to wish you together with the whole Tucano Coffee team: Merry Christmas and a New Year as you wish it to be, and from us we can add a good coffee and something yummy 😉
