ST. CATHERINE, JAMAICA – As part of its continued growth in Jamaica, Starbucks, in partnership with its operating licensee Caribbean Coffee Baristas Limited (CCBL), today announced the unveiling of a new store in Jamaica, marking its eleventh café opening on the island.
Situated at Parkway Square, a recently established shopping center in Portmore, St. Catherine, this 1779 square ft. store will serve as a local point for customers to connect with friends and family over a cup of coffee, while being a convenient alternative for those traversing to Starbucks stores in the nearby city of Kingston.
Customers visiting this store will have a sense of familiarity through the welcoming atmosphere of Starbucks cafés, convenience and on-the-go coffee experience.
"This highly anticipated store opening will bring the Third-Place experience to Portmore, allowing Portmore customers to enjoy the Starbucks Experience from the comfort of their hometown,” said Roxanne Dixon-Rose, Regional Director of CCBL. “This furthers our commitment to providing an unmatched coffee experience by keeping our customers at our core and finding ways to exceed their expectations. We look forward to connecting with the community while providing a place where everyone is welcomed.”
Starbucks cafés are the hallmark of the brand, nurturing the limitless possibilities of human connection and focusing on customer experience, reflecting local culture, and enhancing urban and suburban neighborhoods alike. The store designers work hard to craft experiences that honour the integrity of the neighbourhoods Starbucks Jamaica serves while ensuring that it meets the evolving needs of its customers.
