Starbucks Peru Unveils First Drive-Thru Coffee Experience in Lima’s Urban Zone

  • The new drive-thru concept aims to enhance the Starbucks Experience for the Lima community, balancing speed and quality and offering on-the-go customers their favorite Starbucks beverages.
  • It is the second drive-thru opening in Peru following the debut of Starbucks Panamericana Sur store in 2018.

Lima, Peru - Starbucks - operated by licensed business partner Delosi in Peru - proudly unveiled its first Drive-Thru coffee experience in Lima’s urban zone today with its El Ejercito store located on Pérez Araníbar Avenue in San Isidro. This new opening marks a significant milestone for the brand and precedes a strategic shift in the way Lima residents consume coffee outside their homes.

The launch of the drive-thru store showcases the brand’s adaptability to the Peruvian cultural context and introduces new services tailored to local preferences. Furthermore, reaffirming its commitment to creating a resource-positive future, this store holds Starbucks Greener Store certification, focusing on reducing carbon emissions and implementing more sustainable practices.
