CORSA can be described as a quick-service bike café that will have healthy food and beverages to customers in its targeted market.

PROBLEM & SOLUTION

CORSA is determined to become a daily necessity for healthy foods and beverages, a hangout place for the cycling community in Kuala Lumpur, a place to dream as you try to escape the daily stresses of life and just a comfortable cozy place to meet your friends and talks about bike, all in one. With the growing numbers of cyclists, CORSA shall capitalize on its close proximity to the urban KL’s city to build a core group of regular customers. The need for the existence of a bike café in the city of Kuala Lumpur is because there is no focal point for cyclist to hang out, meeting point and also supporting the city’s cycling community. With the existence of CORSA, it can solve these problems and besides that it can promote the bicycle as a transportation alternative. We believe in the next 5 years, Kuala Lumpur no longer able to accommodate the increasing number of vehicles. We believe that this will be beneficial for our business in the long run.

Our advantages and differences will be the only bike café in the city center. We also will focus on tea product ranging from green tea to earl grey. However, we realize that it’s simply not enough because at the end, a good tasting foods and beverages, and great services will determine the success of our business. So our business operation’s principle shall be the best at everything from staffing to services, to ensure repeat business.
