First Tous les Jours Mongolia store opens

Besides Mongolia, the brand’s parent CJ Foodville has 270 Tous les Jours stores in seven countries: Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, the US and Vietnam.

It is the first international bakery to open in Mongolia, where K-pop has amassed a considerable following, raising the profile and acceptance of Korean brands in general – especially music, food and fashion.

The Korea Times reports that the company’s first Mongolian store in downtown Ulaanbaatar opened on October 31, drawing more than 2000 customers and generating over US$8600 in sales.

A CJ Foodville spokesman said Tous les Jours opened its second shop at the Shangri-La Mall this week, attracting twice the number of customers it expected.
