Gloria Jean’s Coffees™
With over 1000 coffee houses in over 40 countries Gloria Jean’s Coffees™ is one of the world’s premium brands. We pride ourselves in serving the highest quality coffee and providing an outstanding and personalized service in a vibrant store atmosphere.
East Timor Trading Group’s Chairman Sakib Awan brought the Gloria Jean’s Coffees™ franchise to Timor-Leste in 2012, when the Flagship outlet was opened at Timor Plaza. Two more branches, in Colmera and Bidau Lecidere, opened their doors in 2016. Whilst members of the expatriate community and visitors were delighted to find their favourite brand in Dili, Gloria Jean’s Coffees™ has also set a benchmark in Timor-Leste for food and beverage hygiene and customer service.
East Timor Trading Group’s CEO Samitha Aluwihare said that the company plans to expand the number of Gloria Jean’s Coffees™ franchise outlets in the near future: “We would like to open more outlets by 2026,” he said. “For an international franchise like Gloria Jean’s Coffees™ to come to Timor-Leste is a very significant development in the country’s commercial history. It requires not only a significant financial investment, but also a very strong and consistent commitment to vocational training.”
Our baristas and coffeehouse team are trained in the best procedures and practices as developed by Gloria Jean’s Coffees™ International and have the same skills as their overseas counterparts.
At Gloria Jean’s Coffees™ Timor-Leste we pride ourselves on being as an international franchise that offers our patrons choice. They can choose between our in-house blends of coffee or locally sourced Timorese beans, they can choose between any number of delicious treats offered in our pastry cabinets. They can choose hot or cold. Dine in or take away.
