PTT plans to keep filling demand for petrol stations

PTT (Cambodia) Ltd, a subsidiary of Thailand’s state-owned energy firm PTT Pcl, plans to expand its presence in Cambodia, opening new service stations, convenience stores and food and beverage outlets, a company executive said yesterday.

Speaking at the inauguration of the company’s new head office yesterday, Suthon Choothian, managing director of PTT Cambodia, said PTT has expanded steadily and diversified its operations since first entering the Cambodian market in 2000.

“In 2000, we mainly focused on petroleum distribution,” he said. “Now, PTT Cambodia is operating three petroleum storage depots for airline refuelling services, 35 petrol stations nationwide, 50 Café Amazon outlets for coffee, and 13 Jiffy Marts to answer the growing demand of the Cambodian people.”

PTT Cambodia previously announced plans to increase the number of petrol stations across the Kingdom to 90 by 2020, and to have a total of at least 120 Café Amazon branches by 2021.

Café Amazon has become one of the fastest-growing beverage chains in the country since arriving four years ago, with new outlets opening both inside PTT petrol stations and as franchised stand-alone shops.
