menus. TCH is no exception. In addition to coffee products are quite
popular, the brand also developed many other products, such as milk

options may attract more health conscious consumers; plus emphasis on


ethically produced coffee beans. Take-away is also applied perfectly in
TCH.

2. Price
TCH chooses a price range from 30,000 to 40,000 VND / person - a
reasonable cost, enough to entice customers to sit regularly.

3. Promotion
Coffee House's content always takes the story of the customer as the
center instead of placing the attention on the product, but also towards
the customer's mind. Maximizing the social media promotion of
Starbucks and its good works in ethical and responsible coffee
production will improve the firm’s reputation. A constant and interactive
presence on social networking sites as well as discounting policies will
build relationships with consumers.

4. Place
Not only making a mark through the dense appearance in big cities, the
brand also earned points by choosing a place that is very suitable for the
target audience. The stores of TCH are always located in easy-to-find
locations, easy to park, the central façade of the districts, where there
are eye-catching street views.
