The brand is working to gain massive coverage by the end of the year, signing new stores in California, with more on the way.
Brentwood, CA (RestaurantNews.com) Filipino-inspired café, Café 86, has just closed three new agreements this month, bringing its impressive number of units sold in three short months to 10. The newest agreements will bring the ube sensation and specialty dessert shop to new locations throughout its home state of California.
Connie McGhee is the newest franchisee who will be operating a store in Brentwood. Glendale is also gaining a Café 86, located in the popular shopping hub Glendale Galleria. The Glendale location is owned by multi-unit owner Lorna Lam who also owns a store in Burbank. The third group to take on Café 86 ownership consists of Inna Joyce Aguda, Josephine Camille Bulseco, Fernando Siazon, and Joannes Paulus Siazon. The group signed for a new territory in Rancho Cucamonga, CA.
“We’ve been blown away by the strong, positive response we’ve seen this year for Café 86, not only from our patrons, but from entrepreneurs around the nation,” said James Dimapasok, co- founder and owner of Café 86. “The newest groups of franchise partners have exhibited amazing talent, skill, and knowledge over the past few months and our entire team is excited to bring them aboard our network.”
Dimapasok, who founded Café 86 with his wife Ginger Dimapasok in 2014 in Chino, California, shared that Café 86 will continue to seek out food enthusiasts to bring the brand to states en masse throughout the rest of the year.
“Our goal is to break the mold of what it means to be a dessert shop and shake up the culinary scene with new and exciting flavor combinations that don’t just taste delicious, but are pleasing to the eye,” Dimapasok said. Ginger Dimapasok added, “We want our franchisees to know that we are behind them 100%, working behind the scenes to make our brand even greater, our recipes stand out, and to create an experience unforgettable by everyone who walks through their doors.”
Each Café 86 franchise includes a hefty suite of tools and resources for its franchise owners, including branding, recipes, detailed training sessions, ongoing support, and more. To learn more about Café 86, visit www.cafe-86franchise.com.
