Thanks to tight security at the venue for Board of Investment’s major conference Wednesday morning, a coffee shop that was flexible about its office hour managed to win a lot of customers.

Blackcanyon was the only restaurant opened before the conference started at the Impact Arena in Muang Thong Thani, and thus participants made a long queue at the shop.

Other cafeteria such as Starbucks, KFC and McDonald's open at 8.30. The seminar starts at 9.15 but the organiser said it will close the door at 8.30 to conduct security check before Prime Minister Payut Chan-o-cha will arrive to give an opening speech. Unlike other shops, Black Canyon which situates at the main entrance, has a flexible opening time. 

"We are not yet quite readied," said a Black Canyon's staff as he busily serving long-queued guests. 

Participants of the BoI event are top executives and senior officials.
