Madrid, June 15, 2016.- Starbucks is opening a new store in Mijas today, thereby proving that the company continues to be committed to the province of Malaga as it inaugurated another store in the capital city just a couple of weeks ago. This is now the fifth store to open up in the province in just two years.
Just like the Malaga, Puerto Banús and Capricho stores, the new store in Mijas is located in a spot within the El Corte Inglés due to a nationwide collaboration agreement Starbucks signed with this department store.
El new Starbucks occupies a total surface area of 156 m2 and has a staff of 14.
As far as the decor, it is all inspired in the mythology of the mermaid, the emblem that has been on the Starbucks logo since it was founded in 1971. In fact, it inspired the large metal screen in the main part of the store. The counter is built of laminated steel and shaped like a monolith, which contrasts with the warm wood at the end of the counter. The works of art, also inspired in the mythical mermaid, are made of tin and copper, which add coziness to the place. Thus, Starbucks has created a “third place” experience for customers - the perfect spot for relaxing and enjoying the best coffee.
Following this new opening, Starbucks will have a total of 9 internally owned stores in Andalusia - 4 downtown Seville, 1 at the El Corte Inglés Malaga, another downtown Malaga and 2 in Marbella - as well as the 2 stores operated under licensing agreements at the Malaga-Costa del Sol airport.
To mark the occasion of this new opening, Álvaro Salafranca, CEO of Starbucks Spain and Portugal, said, “This new opening confirms Starbucks’ great commitment to Malaga and its province as well as the consolidation of our collaboration with El Corte Inglés. With the Costas Mijas store, we are bringing the Starbucks experience and passion for coffee even closer to Malaga’s coast and the many tourists who know us in the hopes that it will be just as well received as always by the people of Malaga and its visitors”.
As of today, anyone visiting this new store can enjoy the complete and unique Starbucks experience: sofas, relaxing music, customized beverages, the smell of recently ground coffee and free Wi-Fi. And, of course, they may delight in all of the essence of Starbucks with a Latte or Cappuccino made with the best 100% Arabica coffee and perfectly whipped milk to create the best cream, an exclusive Caramel Macchiato or a Mocca for those who like something sweeter or even a Frappuccino which are quite refreshing during the summer.
Beverages at Starbucks may be customized to the extent of offering 86,000 different ones by choosing from a variety of types of milk, syrup and even the type of coffee for a beverage, always in a cozy atmosphere where you can get together with friends, eat or work in a relaxed environment.
