85°C Bakery Cafe, a new concept of a Bakery cafe, is famous for its signature 85°C Iced Taiwan, China, Hong Kong, Australia, and
85°C Bakery Cafe is a Taiwanese chain of coffee shops run by Gourmet Master Co., Ltd. The company, with an estimated yearly revenue of $200 million, was founded in 2004 by tea shop owner Wu Cheng-Hsueh and has over 325 branches located within Taiwan and Australia. Known as the “Starbucks of Taiwan”, in 2008, the company opened its first US location in Irvine, California, according to Wikipedia.
When Wu Cheng-Hsueh was having coffee with his wife, the idea came to him that he could serve coffee and breads for customers at a low price. He used to have a barbershop, a shoe-material processing plant, a marble factory and bubble-tea and pizza chain stores.
Wu Cheng-Hsueh, president and founder of 85℃ Bakery Cafe, opened the first shop in Bao-Ping, Taipei County, in July 2004. The shop was soon serving around 2000 guests per day and selling over 2000 cups of coffee. He opened a second shop in Yuan Toun, Taipei County, in August 2004. Following the success of the two stores, a third store was opened in Goun Yi, in Taichung City, which marked the beginning of the franchising name 85℃ in November 2004.
The name “85C” refers to Wu’s belief that 85 °C (185 °F) is the optimal temperature to serve coffee.
