Cenomi Retail has signed an agreement with Vienna-based coffee company Bieder & Maier Coffee to bring Vienna coffee houses to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The deal was announced following support from the Ministry of Investment of Saudi Arabia (MISA) and the Saudi Coffee Company (SCC) towards Bieder & Maier’s investment journey and development in the Kingdom.

Cenomi Retail, a leading shopping mall owner and operator in the Kingdom with household brands such as Zara, Alo Yoga, Subway, and Cinnabon, has signed to exclusively open and operate Bieder & Maier Vienna Coffee Houses in the coming years.

According to the statement, this follows a natural move by the MISA and the SCC to invest in Bieder & Maier’s development in the region, with the union of Saudi Arabia, the ‘Home of Arabica’ beans, and Vienna, ‘Home of Coffee Houses’ connoting a perfect world heritage partnership.
