We’re excited about this partnership with a world-class powerhouse such as RFG and are looking forward to introducing the RFG brands to investors and consumers across the region”.

This agreement coincides with other recent Retail Food Group announcements through Gloria Jean’s Coffees Master Franchise Agreements in the United Kingdom, the State of Palestine and Uzbekistan and Donut King moving into the UK, Swedish and Myanmar markets.
