In 2006, Rashid Ali Khan, a Pakistani-born Australian businessman and entrepreneur, purchased the rights to bring Gloria Jean’s Coffees to Pakistan. Rashid’s vision was to introduce world-class coffee in Pakistan, and to enable the development of a coffee culture here.
Gloria Jean’s Coffees began operations in Pakistan in 2007. Today, it is by far the largest international coffee chain in the country, with over 40 outlets in more than a dozen cities. By any measure, the expansion of Gloria Jean’s Coffees in Pakistan has been nothing short of remarkable. When it began, tea-mad Pakistanis knew little about coffee, and nothing about Gloria Jean’s.
Today, Pakistan boasts a vibrant and sophisticated coffee culture, and Gloria Jean’s is broadly acknowledged here as the catalyst for this development. There have been many challenges along the way, but there is no doubt that, in Pakistan, Gloria Jean’s Coffees has established for itself an enviable reputation for excellence and professionalism.
