BLUGRE Coffee, one of the homegrown businesses in Davao City, plans to bring its coffee lifestyle to Wellington, New Zealand in 2018.
The Blugre Coffee has been making waves in Davao since 1990s for its signature drink, the Durian Coffee.
Blugre owner Benjamin M. Cuaresma Jr. said they have agreed with their partners to open a branch in New Zealand by second quarter in 2018.
Cuaresma said the New Zealand branch is estimated to be a 130-square meter area. He added that the logo of the shop and coffees will be the same.
"We are just finalizing everything, particularly when it comes to food, though we're still going to offer some cakes and pastries, may iba din," Cuaresma said.
Blugre co-owner Judilyn Pagulayan said aside from New Zealand, Blugre Coffee will also open branches in Gaisano-Buhangin, Mintal and Toril next year.
They will also open in Palawan, Iligan City, Zamboanga City, Baguio City, Cebu City, Marbel town in South Cotabato, Digos City, Kidapawan City, and Cotabato City soon.
Thus, it will be a busy 2018 for Blugre as they will also open new branches through franchising.
