Will St. Marc Café’s Chococros from Japan Be a Hit in Manila?August 20, 2019

The Chococro has come to town. Japan’s popular coffee shop, St. Marc Cafe, has opened its first Philippine branch at SM Megamall’s Mega Fashion Hall. The Chococro, their signature pastry, is available in chocolate-coffee and strawberry daifuku flavors. Also on the menu are specialty coffee drinks, desserts, and sandwiches.
In Japan, if it’s not a Starbucks, it’s a St. Marc’s Cafe. The chain boasts around three hundred branches and counting in Japan alone, with a handful of branches in Singapore and China. St. Marc Cafe and the Chococro have a huge following abroad, but it’s looking like tough competition for them amidst the many new coffee shops opening up around the metro.
