David Chen founded and has operated Era Enterprise Ltd. since 2004. He manages a team of 15 people in various positions, and has thrived in the construction business for fifteen years. David has always been a coffee enthusiast. Throughout his years directing Era, he realized that a cup of coffee was the difference between a good day and a bad one. The problem here was that David was incredibly picky. And in his pickiness, he realized that there weren’t a lot of coffee joints that satisfied his pursuit for quality. And even fewer that did so consistently. This is where David saw the potential for a coffee shop, and from that moment onwards he was set on that path. David’s business experience, attention to detail, and enthusiasm for the industry are what pushed him to venture into the coffee business.
