After recently opening its second cafe in the United Arab Emirates, Croatia’s biggest bakery chain has expanded further on the southeastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula.
Yesterday Mlinar Caffe opened for the first time in Oman. The first Mlinar Caffe is located in the capital Muscat in one of Oman’s largest shopping malls, Mlinar announced.
“Residents in Oman and tourists can now have the chance to taste Croatian bakery products which are available around the world,” said Mlinar.
Last month the popular bakery chain opened its second outlet in the United Arab Emirates in the capital Abu Dhabi to join the one in Dubai.
Mlinar manages more than 240 bakeries from their Zagreb base and has rapidly expanded franchises internationally over the last two years, with bakeries opening in Switzerland, Australia, Germany, Slovenia, Dubai, Ireland, Slovakia, Sweden, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.
Mlinar also exports products like bureks and pastries, to 19 international markets and employs around 2,000 people in Croatia where their headquarters are. Mlinar has production plants in Osijeku, Poreč, Šibenik and Zagreb.
