Café de Coral Group has denied banning Filipino domestic helpers from entry across its stores.

“The Group is highly concerned about rumours regarding Café de Coral banning Filipino domestic helpers from entry, which are absolutely unfounded and untrue. We have reported the case to the Police and reserve the right to pursue further action against relevant parties,” the chain said in a statement.

“We aim to offer an array of nutritious and high-value meals to people from all walks of life. As always, customers of all ethnicities and backgrounds are welcome at all our branches. Our goal is to ensure that our staff deliver quality food and service to all of our customers,” it added.

A recent filing by the company, Hong Kong’s largest fast food chain operator, revealed that it expects net profit of about HK$350 million (US$45 million) for the financial year ended March 31, compared to HK$73.6 million a year earlier.

The company operates about 450 restaurants in Hong Kong and mainland China, including some 150 namesake outlets, The Spaghetti House and Oliver’s Super Sandwiches.
