In December 2023, Reborn Coffee entered the Malaysian market with its new store in Kuala Lumpur.

Located at the Exchange TRX mall, the store opened under a newly incorporated entity, Reborn Coffee Malaysia.

The new flagship café is adjacent to other global brands such as Shake Shack and Apple and is part of the company’s global expansion initiative.

In November 2023, Reborn Coffee signed a memorandum of understanding with KIB Plug Energy Korea for a strategic investment of $5m.

The company will use the capital to transform its coffee service model by combining coffee services with electric vehicle charging stations.
