With increased disposable income and more modern lifestyles amongst urban dwellers, Cambodia’s hospitality industry has grown significantly within a very short period of time. With this changing landscape, RMA Cambodia created Express Food Group (EFG) in 2005 as a sister company and has since contributed to the growth of the food and beverage market by bringing the leading international food chain franchises to the Kingdom.
Today, EFG employs over 1,200 staff across five key brands — The Pizza Company, BBQ Chicken, Swensen’s, Costa Coffee, and Dairy Queen. With stores in five cities – Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, Battamabang, Sihanoukville, and Takhmao – EFG has consistently offered world-class quality food and beverages as well as unique dining experiences. In addition, EFG has strengthened its customer service by offering a single point of contact for home delivery service countrywide for any brand.

Considered the most preferred pizza in Cambodia among locals and foreigners alike, The Pizza Company is superior in all aspects – taste, store design and ambience, comfort, home delivery area coverage, variety of pizza crusts, sauces, and toppings as well as customer service. The Pizza Company is also proud of its strict “30-minute delivery or it’s free” policy.
