% Arabica expands in Indonesia

Japanese coffee chain % Arabica is launching four locations in Indonesia.

The stores, scheduled to open in Jakarta and Bali next month, are the result of three years’ planning and were designed by German architect Alexis Dornier.

According to an Instagram post by the company’s Indonesia partner, the first store to open will be at District 8, a mixed-use development in SCBD, South Jakarta, followed by one in Central Park, West Jakarta and one in Bali’s Seminyak Village the following month. The last of the first four stores, which is set to open in Ubud in May, will be % Arabica’s Indonesian flagship.

% Arabica now operates 56 outlets in 13 countries since first opening in Kyoto in 2014. The chain has two stores in the Philippines, three in Singapore, and one in Cambodia, with a Bangkok store expected to launch shortly as well as new outlets in Malaysia and Vietnam on the horizon.
