The Company expects that its presence at this exposition will result in the direct and ready access to a big number of Thai and foreign business delegates who are interested in franchising the restaurants in the ZEN Group, especially among many entrepreneurs from within Thailand and Asian countries where continuous growth is forecasted. This is mainly because the restaurants within the group, especially Thai and Japanese, are well-known and popular among customers while the varied menus and food with great tastes are the main attractions.

"We have the policy to expand our restaurant business to every provinces in Thailand as well as to countries abroad, using the franchise business model to spearhead the advance to increase the capability for business expansion by giving the opportunity to investors to invest. This may take some time to study the markets but it is considered a quick way to grow the business.

This year, we are setting the target to set up 15 more branches in foreign countries, while our long-term plan is to expand our franchise business to cover the Asian region," Mr. Boonyong said.
