LOS ANGELES // PRNewswire // -- Muginoho International Inc., the parent company and franchisor of Beard Papa's Sweets Cafe is proud to announce a Master Franchise Agreement spanning the entire country of Italy. The first location will be based in Milan, a city recognized as a world fashion and design capital, with a major global influence in art and culture.
The expansion to Italy is a Master Franchise Agreement between Muginoho International Inc. and Kamata Inc. of Fukuoka, Japan and Milan, Italy. Kamata, Inc. is a fashion apparel importer and specialty desserts retailer with a focus on bridging the cultures of Japan and Italy.
"We are very excited about our new partnership in Italy. Kamata has a solid history in Italy and a strong commitment to quality and customer service, two hallmarks of our brand," said Craig Takiguchi, President and CEO of Muginoho International, Inc. "Italy is a natural first step into the important European markets in that region for Beard Papa's, particularly for its rich heritage of fine desserts and a reputation as a launching pad for many established retail food brands. Cream puffs, it seems, is a universal language we all share and enjoy!"
Beard Papa's, purveyors of the "World's Best Cream Puffs," is an international desserts phenomenon from Osaka, Japan. Beard Papa's cream puffs are made with fresh custard fillings with, premium, all natural ingredients such as vanilla beans from Madagascar. Its proprietary puff shell is multi-layered with a crunchy pie crust outer layer and a soft French choux dough inside. Its unique "eater-tainment," operations model allows customers to view the entire manufacturing process in a way that appeals to all five senses. The proprietary French choux dough is baked in an open-style kitchen, and the puffs are filled with fresh custard and packaged on demand for customers.
Muginoho International is the global franchising division for Muginoho Ltd., based in Osaka, Japan and Los Angeles, California. Beard Papa's is franchised in over 17 different countries and regions worldwide and is one of several QSR and casual dining businesses that are franchised and licensed through the company. Most recently, Beard Papa's announced new developments in the US, Russia, Canada and throughout Central America.
