Since then, the brand has been operating across three locations, one in the east Harar Region, and the second in Bedele, in the west of Ethiopia, and the third at Addis Ababa, the capital city of Ethiopia. In 2015 Heineken inaugurated its latest state-of-the-art brewery and since then it has continued to expand and invest in the country.
