Ediya Coffee has become the first Korean cafe chain to open its 2,000th store, 15 years since its inception in 2001.
"Our 2,000th shop was opened in Singal in Yongin, Gyeonggi Province," the company said Wednesday.
Ediya has expanded quickly with its relatively low prices.
The number of its shops hit 588 by 2011, and increased to 1,052 in 2013. Over 300 new posts have opened every year since then to reach the 2,000 mark.
"We initially thought we would achieve the mark in the second half of 2017, but it came sooner than expected," a company staffer said.
