In January 2012, Lao Feng Xiang opened a Hong Kong company, setting the cornerstone of overseas development. In August that same year, Lao Feng Xiang opened its first overseas authorized store in Sydney, Australia.

In December 2014, a 400-square-meter store was opened on Fifth Avenue New York. The company’s store in Vancouver, Canada is set to open soon and between three and five new stores are expected to open in Hong Kong in 2015. New stores in the UK and New Zealand are also in the planning stages.
