PHNOM PENH, August 17, (Khmer Times) – The ninth venue of popular Poptea franchise opened on Sunday, on Street 51 in the Boueng Keng Kang 1 district.
Chic teens and young families tucked themselves into shaded corners accessorized with soft cushioned seats and side tables. Small nooks of brick festooned with orchid flowers created a perfect place for book worms and shade dwellers alike to partake in the growing library section of the shop.
The CEO and founder of Poptea, thirty-year old Monira-Daniel Sir, plans grow the library with a promotional book exchange for a pop tea drink…”when a Poptea fan brings in a book and signs it, they will receive a free Poptea drink.”
Cambodia’s educated youth are actively seeking more reading material and books are becoming more popular. Sir says he wants to encourage the growing trend to reading. “I had access to education, I would like to support a new generation to read and push them to read more,” he said.
Pop Tea will mark its anniversary with a grand opening of their tenth venue next month near Russian market.
