Hospitality chain VRO Hospitality is on an expansion drive with its iconic and popular French café brand Café Noir across the country.

 

The Bengaluru headquartered group, which owns around 10 popular fine-dining brands and cloud kitchens, is planning.

 

The group is targeting markets like Kochi, Chennai, and Kolkata and create its first international imprint in Dubai.

 

“This year we are embarking on an exciting journey to take our iconic French café brand Café Noir to new markets, including an international destination. This is in line with our ambition of making VRO Hospitality a pan-India brand,” shared Dawn Thomas, CEO & Co-Founder, VRO Hospitality.

 

Synonymous with French cuisine in Bengaluru, Café Noir’s first outlet came up in the city’s posh shopping destination UB City more than a decade ago.

 

Café Noir currently boasts five outlets in Bengaluru and one in Mumbai, which was opened late last year.

 

“The expansion of Café Noir will allow us to offer a diverse set of food connoisseurs some of the best in French cuisines. Café Noir has already set a benchmark in the dining experience, and we will continue to do so in the new markets where we would be setting up our outlets,” added Sharath Rice, Director & Co-Founder, VRO Hospitality.

 

Originally started by Frenchman Thierry Jasserand a decade ago in Bengaluru, Café Noir became legendary for its bakes, coffees & breakfast. However, in 2020, Thierry decided to return home, which is also when VRO Hospitality took over this quaint coffee place. The cafe also has a new culinary director, Daniel Koshy, who comes with nearly three decades of experience, and is a magician in terms of baking.
