The chain is yet to confirm an opening time, with the majority of its overseas openings done through franchising. Founded by Kenneth Shoji, % Arabica currently operates 30 outlets across 11 countries, with three in Japan. The chain also operates cafes in the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait.
% Arabica is known for using its custom Slayer espresso machines, manufactured in Seattle, the machines allow baristas to have a great deal of control while creating ‘craft’ drinks. It is likely that % Arabica will also sell its own merchandise in its new outlet, including water bottles, tote bags, backpacks, and trainers.
