1/5 They make it easy to prioritise your health
In February this year, Flash Coffee partnered with popular salad bar, Saladstop in a bid to create an all-in-one experience that would combine their special coffee with freshly made salads.
Their new retail concept, which is located in the heart of the central business district at One George Street, allows people to grab healthy breakfast and lunch meals such as wraps, salads, grain bowls, egg-white bowls and oatmeal alongside coffee made from 100 per cent speciality grade Arabica coffee beans.
What could be better or more convenient for a busy workday?
2/5 They are backed by incredible investors
Flash Coffee may have only launched in January 2020 but it has already caught the attention of some pretty prominent investors such as White Star Capital, DX Ventures, Global Founders Capital, and Conny & Co.
In fact, recently, Flash Coffee decided to raise money to support their launch of 300 new outlets. Their funding was led by White Star Capital and together, they raised US$15 million.
3/5 They are everywhere
Currently, Flash Coffee has 50 outlets around Singapore, Thailand and Indonesia. They are also opening three new outlets per week in the region.
With their new fund, Flash Coffee is set to increase this to 10 new outlets per week to create 300 additional stores in the region by the end of 2021.
In fact, their goal is to ensure that there is a Flash Coffee every 500 meters in most major Asian counties. They are currently planning to expand into Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Vietnam.
This is an impressive target and one which will ensure that you are never without your coffee no matter where you are.

5/5 They use technology to make your coffee run seamless
A successful coffee chain is only good if it is able to fit seamlessly into a consumer's life. Flash Coffee has a highly sophisticated consumer app that allows for easy pick-ups, convenient loyalty programmes, personalised promotions and interactive challenges.
With their app, you can easily order your coffee and grab it to go without waiting in long queues or risking a mistake with your order.
