Hamkke was hired to assist the franchising process to bring the brand to Korea.


CCKC Co, the Korean company, now the franchisee of Juan Valdez Café for the Republic of Korea, hired HAMKKE to assist them in the process to get the grant of this franchise.

After several months of hard work to design and execute the strategy to present, and fulfill all the requirements set by PROCAFECOL, finally the franchise contract was signed in early June.


Juan Valdez Coffee is the brand of the National Federation of Coffee Growers of Colombia that belongs to the coffee farmers. The coffee house chain has as a mission to successfully implement a business model that generates a unique and relevant experience around Premium Colombian Coffee.


The coffee industry in Korea (as of 2011) has the second highest coffee consumption in Asia (2Kg/person), after Japan (3Kg/person). This industry is value in approximately USD%1.5 Billion, where the coffee houses have around 15,000 stores, and its growth rate is roughly 10%.


It is a gold opportunity for the franchisor and the franchisee, to open the brand in Korea, because this country is emerging as the most influential for the region in many areas, especially in culture and fashion trends. Therefore a good positioning of the brand in Korea will have a domino effect especially in Northeast and Southeast Asia countries.


It was a huge challenge for HAMKKE, but now we are very glad with this achievement, working TOGETHER with CCKC Co, make us more confident about the potential of these two countries to strength their commercial ties, and the need for local and foreign companies to have a trustworthy advisor like HAMKKE to make the dreams a reality.


Coming soon: Juan Valdez and his mule dancing in Gangnam, introducing the mildest premium coffee in the world, and thanks to the trust and hard work of CCKC Co, this business will increase the welfare of thousand of coffee growers in Colombia.


“The South Korean coffee market is shaping up us the new frontier for specialty coffee in the Asia Pacific, and possible the World.”
