Anniversaries are opportunities for recollections of the years gone by and positive reflections for the years ahead.
We usually write in third person but since today is our 9th anniversary, I am breaking my own rules!
I am grateful of being in this business for nine years .I started looking up statistics for small businesses and found that only 38% of businesses make it to their 9th year with roughly half not surviving past year four. For the past nine years, despite the hard work that this business needs in Iran, the recession and the domestic and external problems, including sanctions, we have had new success and revenues each year. Our best try is to update the culture of coffee drinking in Iran whose history belongs to Safavi period -16th century-and in this field we cannot dissemble the valuable cooperation of our business partners and our faithful customers.
I hope that coffee business which is the second largest business after petrol in the world, takes its worthy place in Iran’s marketing as well. I try my best to diversify our offerings and expand Padide Paydar Iranian company’s reach across Iran, in the year ahead.
Thanks to – one and all – for being beside me this past nine years and I hope that this Companionship continues.
