Investor Relations Alert

Executive Q&A: Appetite for Growth still Healthy at MK Restaurant Group after 30 Years

MK Restaurant Group Plc is a multibrand restaurant group with branches throughout Thailand and elsewhere in Asia. It listed on the Stock Exchange of Thailand in August 2013 and trades under the symbol M. Chief executive Rit Thirakomen discusses the company's strategy and outlook.

What is your business model?

MK Restaurant Group has developed from the MK Suki Restaurant brand to become a multibrand group with brands covering four types of cuisine: the Suki restaurants MK Suki and MK Gold; the Thai restaurants Na Siam and Le Siam; the Japanese restaurants Yayoi, Miyazaki and Hakata; and the coffee shop and bakery chain Le Petit. Today we have more than 500 branches throughout Thailand and the region.

Your company has been developing new restaurant brands in recent years. Could you explain the process behind this?

We created our second brand, Yayoi, which is Japanese fast-casual cuisine, six years ago and expanded it very quickly to 120 branches today. Last year we developed Miyazaki, which is teppanyaki-style Japanese cuisine. This is new for the Thai market, as most Thais understand yakiniku, in which you self-barbecue the food, but this can be an issue since not everyone is a chef.

We approached the Miyazaki brand with the same mindset of ensuring the best quality of food and service can be provided to our customers. Thus, we devised a system that makes teppanyaki more affordable and yet still tasty for our customers. We expect to have 13 branches this year and another 15 next year.

MK Restaurant Group has expanded throughout Thailand and the region. Could you provide an update?

Our two key brands, MK Suki and MK Gold, have grown very well in the past decade. For the next seven to 10 years, Thailand will continue to develop as a nation, and we see opportunities in both the provincial and suburban areas to continue our expansion.

Regarding the region, our first phase of expansion was to test the response of our brands throughout Asia, and this has been successful, with two outlets in Vietnam, 31 in Japan, six in Singapore and one in Indonesia. The second phase of our expansion will be to rapidly open several branches to ensure we have a dominant position in each respective country... FULL DETAIL  Full Detail

Ichitan: Inks Indonesian deal

Ichitan Group Plc (ICHI), a SET-listed ready-to-drink green tea producer, expects sales to more than triple to 25 billion baht over the next five years after teaming up with an Indonesian retailer and a giant Japanese trading company to penetrate the Indonesian market next year.

Ichitan yesterday signed a partnership agreement with PT Atri Pasifik, a subsidiary of Indonesian retail group PT Sigmantara Alfindo, to form Ichitan Indonesia and penetrate the Indonesian ready-to-drink tea market worth 73 billion baht in next year's first quarter.

Both sides will hold a 50% stake in the venture and each initially contribute 148 million baht or 25% of registered capital.

Tokyo-based Mitsubishi Corporation is also a business partner in Atri Pasifik.

Total investment will be 592 million baht when a beverage production plant in Indonesia is completed.

Tan Passakornnatee, president and chief executive of Ichitan, said his company would start marketing two ready-todrink green tea flavours in the Indonesian market in the next year's first quarter.

Ichitan green tea will be produced by an original-equipment manufacturer in Indonesia, while some will be exported from its factory in Thailand... FULL DETAIL  Full Detail
