Every Thursday, ILQ features a different Qatari startup in our ‘Startup of the Week’ segment. Qatar has some of the most creative, unique, and impactful startups in the region, and we cover them all across a variety of industries in Doha—from fashion and beauty, to food and dining, health, education, and more!
This week, we're topping the whipped cream on Future Vision Cafe (FVC)—Qatar's premier coffee shop where the products are mostly 100% Qatari!
Their main branch—which has a seating capacity of more than 100 persons—has long been erected in Al Sadd and is a favorite get-together spot among coffee and football fans as the cafe's terrace is purely dedicated for LIVE viewing of football matches, especially during the FIFA World Cup 2018 season. FVC's 2-storey sanctuary in the middle of the city provides the highest quality of products available in the market accompanied with a top-notch customer service delivered by its line-up of culturally-diverse staff.
FVC's vision is to earn their customers' loyalty and trust by sticking true to the values that they believe in. Respect for cultural differences, open mindedness, and pro-activity are just some of the core pillars of FVC besides its very Qatari origin which has been one of their hottest selling trait since their opening two years ago.
Speaking to ILQ, FVC Operations and Marketing Manager Saad Loucif said that "FVC is the dream business of its sole Qatari founder who purely loves coffee and pastries. She envisioned having a cozy coffee shop with a European ambiance and decorations touched with Western and local influences."
Two years after the success of FVC's main branch in Al Sadd, their second branch inside Al Mirqab mall was as well inaugurated just recently. Their wide selection of menu for both branches is carefully-planned and created by the well-trained individuals who have several years of experience in the coffee shop industry. Composed mainly of espresso, hot drinks, iced blended fresh juices, mojitos, smoothies and mocktails, FVC also serves cakes, pastas, pizzas, burgers, and breakfast meals.
Mr. Saad also mentioned that they're lucky to be receiving mostly positive feedback from their customers and that they've already gained loyal ones who come to the cafe on a regular basis. Another feature that keeps people coming back to FVC is their function hall which is free to use as long as customers will order drinks and pastries from them. Some of the occasions being held in FVC's second floor are birthday parties, batch reunions, and even Christmas get-togethers among Filipinos!
Speaking of Filipinos, FVC is set to hold a Karaoke Night competition soon after the FIFA World Cup 2018 is over and according to the FVC staff, cash prizes will be given away.
Future Vision Cafe's main branch (in Al Sadd) is open 24 hours while the one in Al Mirqab follows the mall timings. To know more about them, check out their contact details below!
