Talca, Chile - Starbucks Chile – operated by licensed partner Alsea – today announced the opening of its first store in Talca, a vibrant tourist destination located in southern Chile.

Around the world, Starbucks designs its stores to foster the human connections that are created over a cup of coffee, reflecting the diverse international communities it serves. The new Talca store, spanning an area of 190 square meters with a capacity to serve approximately 50 people, boasts a distinctive design by local artist Pepe inspired by the city's rich flora and fauna. Adorned with unique artwork and décor celebrating the iconic Starbucks siren, the space is designed to act as a “Third Place” for Chilean customers, providing a warm and welcoming meeting place where everyone can enjoy high-quality arabica coffee from Latin America and around the world and handcrafted beverages prepared by passionate baristas.
Since entering Chile in 2003 with its first store in Santiago, Starbucks maintains its commitment to serving Chilean customers and the communities in which it has a presence.
