SEVEN FRESH has announced its development goals by the end of 2021, striving to become a premier retail brand in China within the next 5-7 years, mainly focusing on two regions, the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei urban agglomeration and the Greater Bay Area. As eight stores already opened in the Grande Baie region last year, SEVEN FRESH expects to have more than 20 stores in the region by 2022.
