Businesses remain hamstrung by the pandemic, leading most enterprises to freeze their investment amid the uncertainty.
Yet some companies are bucking the trend.
Several coffee shops and tea chains debuted their business shortly after the government announced its lockdown measures. Among them are %Arabica, the Japanese specialty coffee brand, which opened in early June at Iconsiam mall.
Thai tea chain Brew Bar and Canadian coffee shop Tim Hortons also recently opened new cafes at Seacon Square Bangkae.
Many more are scheduled to debut their coffee and milk tea chains in Thailand soon, including BubbleZ, Milk Shop, Mr Wish, Presotea from Taiwan and a new fruit tea chain from China.
