Napoleon — previously a member of the late Tupac’s group, The Outlawz, but now known as Mutah Beale — currently resides in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia where he’s recently launched his latest business endeavor, a coffee shop.
According to The National, Beale has been involved in business ventures from real estate to a barbershop over the years, but most recently, partnered for the launch of the Mathaq Al-Kaif Coffee Shop.
“It was because of my love for coffee that I started to study the coffee industry from a grass roots level to business and I came to find out the coffee business is very lucrative,” he tells the paper.. “I decided to open a coffee shop here in Riyadh, where I live, as I noticed coffee shops are not only every where in Saudi, but also successful in most cases.”
Despite all the competition, Beale has come up with unique ways to set his coffee house apart from others, such as serving American treats not found anywhere locally.
“We have American desserts that can’t be found in Saudi, such as the bean pie, which has been selling off the chain,” Beale says. “We also have an English book club and English tutoring programs taught by American English teachers. We also will have basic Arabic classes for non-speaking Arabs called Arabic and Ghawah (Arabic and coffee).
“We hold sports events and we will soon launch a smart phone app for our shop, which will allow people to order in advance if they’re in a rush and they will receive free coffee and discounts via this app.”
