Aiming to become a key place for Toki consumption
Kaikatsu CLUB’s new concept store (KEY PLACE) opens July 11th Kaikatsu CLUB Shibuya Center Street store
KAIKATSU CLUB, a sharing space operated by KAIKATSU FRONTIER Co., Ltd. (President: Fumiaki Takeshima), will open a Shibuya Center Street store on July 11th of this year with the concept of “KEY PLACE for free time.” As the company aims to grow its business by expanding its customer base, this store will be the first to open in Shibuya Ward, and at the same time it will be a new project that captures the “change from consumption of things and experiences to consumption of special events.”
Our company plans to open approximately 60 stores with this concept over the next three years, mainly in downtown urban areas.
Aiming to create new value that responds to consumption
Up until now, our company has been providing services primarily to people who want to spend their leisure time leisurely each day, but in creating new value to expand our customer base, we have focused on “free time.” Gap time, defined as a short period of free time between schedules or a small amount of free time to work on small tasks, is due to various factors such as the spread of online tools, the evolution of technology, and changes in lifestyles due to the coronavirus pandemic. As a result, we are seeing changes in how we use and spend our time. This change can also be seen in our stores located in downtown areas, where businessmen are increasingly using their private rooms with locks to ensure privacy during their spare time during the day.
Based on these backgrounds, we conducted research on places to spend free time, and as a result, we set a benchmark for cafes that are used by a wide range of customers regardless of gender and age, and decided on the logo, interior and exterior design, and facilities. has been revamped. We aim to be a store that contributes to increasing the value of Toki consumption by serving as a key place (way point) for preparing for the next schedule, refreshing your mind, and switching over during the gap between schedules. I shall go.

New value provided by KEY PLACE
According to our own research, the criteria for selecting a cafe, which is a typical facility used during free time, is that in addition to the direct requirements of taste and price of food and drinks, customers are also looking for a place where they can spend a quiet time and stay for a long time. I understand the importance of added value. I also realized that there was a certain level of
dissatisfaction with not being able to achieve that added value. In response, our company has the advantage of not only being able to use a completely private room with a lock to ensure privacy and a lounge with a sense of freedom equipped with comics and magazines on an hourly basis, but also being open 24 hours a day and not being subject to time constraints. We see this as something that can create new demand.
We aim to become a key place for a rich lifestyle by enriching free time. *Reference material 2: In-house survey on the actual usage of cafes Enrich your “RE” time with KEY PLACE
The new usage scenarios envisioned for the store are as follows. ・RE:LAX A time away from the hustle and bustle of the city where you can relax your mind and body by taking a break while drinking coffee. ・RE:FRESH A moment after work to immerse yourself in something you like and regain your energy.
RE:SET A time to improve results by sorting out previous business negotiations and preparing for the next one.
RE:SKILLING A moment to use your free time for learning that leads to self-growth.
In addition to these, we will create various usage scenes as a key place for Toki consumption.
