1. F&B ecosystem
Café Amazon, a world-class coffee brand: Café Amazon engages in an integrated coffee business strictly under value-creation and growth in parallel with communities, society, and the environment across the business chain ranging from promotion of Thai farmers to grow exquisite coffee beans, selection of quality beans through a roasting process under a well-kept formula at the brand’s large-scale, advanced coffee roasting plant to deliver to Café Amazon outlets across the country.
Café Amazon brand’s clear marketing stance: We strive for Green Oasis (a resting place to refill life’s energy for every consumer’s journey), made up of four key factors. First, the outlet’s lush ambience. Second, a Thai coffee brand that truly meets the taste buds of Thai consumers. Third, location and access, located inside and outside PTT Stations with a nationwide network, and now our growth has expanded into department stores, community malls, government agencies, organizations, educational institutions, underground (MRT stations and BTS stations), as well as community locations. Fourth, value for money, affordable and accessible to all consumers.
To meet consumers’ new lifestyles of spending more time at home and their needs of quick, convenient access to products and services, Café Amazon has introduced variety of drinks, including tea, chocolate, fruit juice, drip coffee, and cold-brew coffee-all carefully chosen-along with delicious snacks and bakery menus. To this end, we have grown distribution channels through online channels, department stores, supermarkets (modern trade) and through Café Amazon’s own mobile application, as well as delivery.
In 2021 ,OR launched a sizeable merchandise distribution center with deployed robot technology operating on 24,000 square meters and capable of providing merchandise service of about 22 million items a year. At the same time, OR launched dry mix factory (producing green tea, chocolate, among others) and its own bakery production with quality raw materials and specific recipes from Café Amazon’s plants to constantly deliver quality products to customers. Finally, OR invested with business partners for inclusive growth, synergy, and optimization of business to create shared values across the supply chains.
Other F&B businesses: Besides engaging in quick service restaurants by getting license (master franchise) in Thailand for Texas Chicken and Pearly Tea (a brand owned by OR), this year OR continually invested in the shares of other food and drink businesses to grow its F&B portfolio to fulfill consumers’ needs to cater to consumers’ diverse needs for food and drinks. This year’s investment consisted of:

2. Other Retail Businesses
Convenience stores: OR operates under its own Jiffy brand and the 7-Eleven brand under a cooperative agreement between OR and CP All, with sales of F&B along with various goods for the convenience of PTT Stations’ patrons.
Rental space management: PTT Stations represent a physical platform for growing businesses related to Mobility and Lifestyles. OR has designed them into hubs for fulfilling communities’happiness and growth (Living Community). Besides Café Amazon, Jiffy and 7-Eleven found at each station, we offer space leasing to 330 business partners’ brands in assorted businesses, including food outlets, laundry shops, and parcel delivery while supporting community enterprises and small enterprises to put Thai Det, local iconic products, on sale at PTT Stations. Besides, we have allocated space outside PTT Stations to answer the needs of various groups of consumers.

OR therefore has a plan to invest in these businesses, so that it may be part of the everyday life of all consumers of different age groups and genders.
Overseas business growth represents a key tool for future growth. Therefore, OR continues to grow its businesses in high-potential areas in both population and population quality, economic outlook, and parity with Thailand (social and cultural). OR has developed a business expansion strategy for international investments, through our asset-light business model: This embraces OR’s pursuit of new business opportunities in existing areas where OR already has business bases and local know how as well as new, high-potential areas. The aim is to grow together with business partners, communities, allies, and foreign entrepreneurs. Starting with the selection of brands that match the demand and popularity of a particular new market, after which OR will export high-quality products and start mobility and lifestyle businesses under its proprietary brands marketable in that country (such as PTT Station and Café Amazon) to enhance brand awareness. Once the brand is widely known with a secure customer base, OR will expand its network of PTT Stations and Café Amazon and/or retail product and service outlets in each market as appropriate. OR enters each market as an experienced leader of the industry from Thailand and introduces platforms from Thailand focused on sharing and expanding success to other countries in the region and globally. Recognizing the complexity of business operation in different countries, OR carefully studies the business model of each country and strategically tailors its business operation models to best fit each specific country, or what we call “localization.”
