Madrid; September 5, 2016.- As of today, the Salamanca district has a new Starbucks store located at calle Velázquez no. 32. The new location, which offers 26 seats indoors and 12 on the outdoor terrace, employs 13 people, all baristas.
Enclaved in an area known for noble estates and palaces, its image heightens the Starbucks experience and transmits the brand’s values throughout the premises, boosting its heritage from the past, the architectural sincerity and the essence of the building built in 1925.
Noble and sustainable materials were used for the remodeling as well as intimate lighting. The furniture is made of natural oak with the central community table for community interaction particularly standing out.
Thus, Starbucks has created a new “third spot”, between home and work where Madrid residents and visitors to the area may now enjoy the complete Starbucks experience. It’s a unique place in a cozy atmosphere where you can meet with friends, eat or work in a relaxed environment while enjoying excellent coffee.
In the words of Álvaro Salafranca, CEO of Starbucks Spain and Portugal “we are pleased to open a new store in Madrid, where we already have a solid market and where they always welcome us with open arms. For us, it’s a great opportunity to be even closer to our customers and be able to offer them the best Starbucks experience".
With this new opening, Starbucks now has 82 internally-owned stores in Spain throughout Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Malaga, Seville, Alicante and Bilbao, as well as another 10 which are being operated at airports under licensing agreements.
