Established in 2016, born in Kota Kinabalu Sabah, the first THE BEAN opened its doors.  Fast forward to today, there are 8 outlets in Sabah and other cities. Our signature house blend, toasts, and unique cafe interior in every outlet give our patron the perfect place to relax, work and meet friends. Licensees benefit from extensive marketing, in-depth instruction and training and ongoing in-café support. With all these in place, it gives a solid financial return to our Licensees.

We offer a range of store models under the brand THE BEAN EXPRESS® 

to match just what you're looking for. Our knowledgeable support team will guide you through becoming a licensee for one of our new stores!

Did you know?
When buying a license, you'll typically pay an initial fee to use the brand and the business model of the license owner – known as the licensee. You then pay royalty fees – usually, a percentage of your sales– to the licensor for ongoing brand and company support so you can build your business.

"Being our second outlet, it's bigger and better but it also comes with more challenges. 
Our HQ provided all the support needed for planning, renovation, training, test-running and opening. They went all the way to make sure it's all up and running confidently, including extending their stay to assist. Truly thankful and grateful.”

With zero F&B background, it was easy for us to set up our cafe as HQ Team is extremely helpful. 
We could completely trust their team whenever we requested help.
