The elements like service quality, customer satisfaction, customer trust and brand image are independent variables, whereas the dependent variable only includes customer loyalty. The targeted population is comprised of all those people and customers who visit La Moosh (Café), Hyderabad, Pakistan.

Three major tests are entertained for analysis such as factor analysis, reliability analysis (Cronbach’s Alpha) test and regression analysis test. Findings show that there is a significant and direct relationship of independent variables including service quality, customer satisfaction, customer trust and brand image on the dependent variable i.e. customer loyalty on La Moosh, Hyderabad, Pakistan.
