South African fast casual restaurant chain Kauai opens first site in Thailand
The brand has 164 stores in South Africa and the Netherlands.
South African fast casual restaurant chain Kauai has opened its first site in Southeast Asia, FNB News has reported.
The healthy food chain’s Bangkok outlet comes courtesy of Dusit Real Foods, a joint venture between Thailand-based Dusit Foods and South Africa’s Real Foods, the owner of the brand.
The African restaurant concept is known for its healthy dishes served in about 164 stores in South Africa and the Netherlands since being founded 23 years ago.
“Moving into standalone outlets was an obvious next step for Dusit. The Thai joint venture, Dusit Real Foods, will oversee the opening of several fast-casual restaurants in Thailand, with possible expansion into retail ranges,” Dusit Foods managing editor Jate Sopitpongstorn said.
Whilst retaining the Kauai concept and store design, Real Foods intends to differentiate itself in the Thai market by becoming “a one-stop-shop for all their healthy food needs,” offering customizable menu items for the health-conscious customers.
