Canadian Company, Cacao 70, Announces International Expansion into China and the US
Founded in 2001 by Yingzhi (Easy) Wang and Bing Tang, Canadian chocolate company Cacao 70 launched as a single chocolate drinking bar in Montreal, but quickly expanded into a franchisee business model with 20 restaurants and more than 20 more expected to open by the end of 2018.
Having experienced rapid growth across Canada, opening 18 franchises between 2014 and 2017, Cacao 70 now looks to the United States and China as the next frontiers for expansion. “Our company has grown steadily and we have been looking at these international markets for a while, so it seemed only natural to continue expanding,” said Cacao 70 Co-Founder Easy Wang. “We’re very excited to be opening in China this spring and to grow the Cacao 70 brand on an international level.”
Cacao 70’s quest to transform chocolate into exciting flavor adventures has led down the path of cacao bean sourcing, product development and new store concepts – all tracing back to the first store opening in Montreal seven years ago. Now, in 2018, Cacao 70 will proudly open locations in Tianjin, China, and Atlanta, Georgia.
