L Krishnakumar, CFO of TGBL Group, said, "We currently have around 136 stores and we would open another between 5 to 10 stores by the end of the year (fiscal). We have seen an increase in the store roll out. We look at activating more stores roll out in the next few years, what we have seen in the past."

TGBL has started some of its premium coffee in the US and some other market by leveraging Starbucks relationship beyond India. 

"From value-wise it's not significant but important from a brand perspective. There are some premium coffees which have been launched in the Starbucks store in different parts," Krishnakumar added. 

Starbucks opened its first store in India at Horniman Circle, Mumbai, in 2012.
