American ice cream chain company Cold Stone Creamery is joining other big Western retailers to set up shop in Nairobi. Its first store is set to be opened by end of September. This will be done through a 10 year franchise deal with Om Nom Nom Mauritius Ltd which already has businesses in Nairobi.
The middle class in Kenya is growing at a steady rate and this has created a certain demand for certain types of high end products. This has attracted the likes of Subway and KFC to set up more than one outlet in Kenya. Companies such as Nairobi Java House gets hundreds of customers every day despite it being a high end coffee house.
