WE OPENED OUR FIRST CAFÉ IN BENGALURU IN 1996. TODAY, WE HAVE ESTABLISHED THE LARGEST FOOTPRINT OF CAFÉ OUTLETS IN INDIA.
We are the parent company of the Coffee Day Group, which houses Café Coffee Day that pioneered the coffee culture in the chained café segment in India. This coffee goes all over the world to clients across, Europe and Japan, making us one of the top coffee exporters in the country. We opened our first Café Coffee Day outlet in Bengaluru in 1996 , ours was a new vision—one where coffee was more than just a beverage. It was a cup that brought coffee aficionados, budding coffee drinkers, and well, friends together over a cup of freshly brewed coffee. Today, our subsidiary Coffee Day Global Limited has established the largest footprint of café outlets in India-spread across more than 200 cities. Our forays into diverse businesses are marked by the same passion with which we started Coffee Day Global Limited. Our portfolio includes Technology Parks & SEZs, Logistics, Investments, Financial Services and Hospitality.
Our Company was originally formed as a partnership firm constituted under the Indian Partnership Act, 1932 on February 1, 2008 under the name Coffeeday Holding Co. Coffeeday Holding Co. was thereafter converted from a partnership firm to a private limited company under Part IX of the Companies Act, 1956 as Coffee Day Holdings Company Private Limited. The name of our Company was changed to Coffee Day Resorts Private Limited and subsequently, as Coffee Day Enterprises Private Limited. Our Company was converted into a public limited company and the name of our Company was changed to Coffee Day Enterprises Limited thereafter.
OUR CULTURE IS WHAT WILL DETERMINE WHERE WE TAKE COFFEE NEXT.
We are where coffee is today, and where it’s going next. We bring coffee from the bean to the cup. Over time we've developed the science of nurturing the yield, how to roast it-to coax just the right flavour from it-and how to extract that flavour in the brew. Yet, we do more than please the palate. In every bean, we see the potential of each day ready to be released.
Coffee is our purpose. It inspires us because we can see the boundless possibilities in the lives of our guests.
Together we move on to a global stage. Let's see where will coffee take us next?
