Dear Reader,

Philippines-based coffee chain operator PICKUP COFFEE received a fresh capital injection from new investors this week.

According to its regulatory filings, the latest transactions are part of a new pre-Series B round. The startup’s latest share price is up [redacted]% from its previous round, per DATA VANTAGE.

PICKUP COFFEE had last announced raising $40 million in a Series A round led by Argor Capital, formerly known as Go-Ventures, in April last year. The company was valued at [redacted] million after the round, which was backed by DSG Consumer Partners, Gentree Fund, Kickstart Ventures, Venturi, and Antler.

The startup, founded by Jamie Fernandez and Diego Lorenzo in 2022, claims to offer premium coffee at affordable prices. It began as a delivery-only brand serving locations around Metro Manila. Since then, it has expanded to launch physical stores — small stalls that resemble food trucks as well as bigger PRIME stores — where customers can pick up their beverages or drink them onsite.
