Where does Urban Station’s style come from?

From the underground streets of London, Urban Station is an urban station, it sounds like a subway station, but the stations are small, fast and scattered in many places.

Coffee is an indispensable drink of Vietnamese people

After a period of about 6 months of such losses, we made a few improvements to the model and design style.

The first shop after fixing the model had a little profit.

Currently, Urban Station’s system has 30 shops, 5 shops in Hanoi, one shop each in Da Nang, Vung Tau, Bien Hoa, and the rest are concentrated in districts of the city.

In fact, there is always the biggest headache.

I heard that the brand could also be expanded in the Indochina region, but have you not done so yet?

Right from the start of the model, I thought about bringing high-end services like Coffee Bean, Gloria Jeans or Starbucks down to a price that more people could use.
