Cafer Erol adopted a boutique production style, the emphasis of his philosophy being customer satisfaction. Without compromising from quality, quality control is to be maintained in every detailed step of the process. Two additional stores have been opened in İstanbul Göztepe and İstinye Park to deliver its unique products to its customers, expanding Cafer Erol's legacy.
