Blue Bottle Coffee said on July 9 that it will increase the number of its outlets in South Korea to four this year.

The California-based coffee company advanced to Korea in May by opening its first store in Seongsu, eastern Seoul. It opened a second shop in Samcheong, central Seoul, last week.

Korea has been a proven market for global coffee brands such as Starbucks. The Seattle-based coffee company now operates 1,290 stores in Korea and earned 1.5 trillion won ($1.3 billion) in 2018, up 20 percent from a year earlier.

Blue Bottle Coffee currently runs 62 outlets in the United States and 14 in Japan. Korea has become the third country that has the US coffee brand’s stores.
