Starbucks to open its first coffee shop in Costa Rica amid regional expansion
Starbucks plans to open its first Costa Rican location in May as the world’s largest coffee-shop chain boosts its presence in the region.
Since announcing plans to enter the Central American market in August 2010, Starbucks has opened six locations in the region, including four in El Salvador and two in Guatemala.
“Starbucks has purchased Costa Rican coffee for many years,” Pablo Arizmendi-Kalb, general manager of Starbucks in Latin America, said. “With this opening, we are committed to expanding our role in the rich coffee heritage present in Costa Rica.”
