Starbucks opens 100th UK franchise store
Starbucks has celebrated the launch of its 100th franchise store in the UK with a new store opening on Londons Mile End Road.
The coffee chain launched its franchise programme two years ago with a first store in Liphook in Hampshire. The chain now has 14 franchised partners.
The new store will be operated by TREATS and is Mile End’s first Starbucks. The shop will create up to 12 new jobs for the local area.
Amin Merali, director of TREATS, said: “We’re proud to partner with Starbucks and already operate 3 Starbucks stores across London, with plans to open a further ten stores this year, creating over 120 jobs. It’s exciting to open the 100th franchised store in Mile End and welcome in new employees from the surrounding area and new customers looking for a great cup of coffee.”
Jane Coleman, Starbucks director of franchising, added: “It’s fantastic to reach this milestone of 100 franchised stores in the UK and we’re looking forward to continuing to grow our franchise stores, helping us to reach those towns and locations we have not yet had the opportunity to serve.”
