With its entry in the Portuguese market in 2008 and 11 stores now open - 9 internally owned and 2 franchises at the Lisbon airport arrivals terminal and departures terminal-, Starbucks is announcing the opening of 2 new locations in Algarve sometime before the end of the year. This new opening marks the arrival of Starbucks in the region all while creating 35 new jobs.
The brand will have 2 stores in the south of the country, one at Mar Shopping Algarve (Loulé) and another at Fórum Algarve (Faro).
Starbucks will also arrive in the city of Oporto with the opening of a new location in the historic heart of the city and another at the Porto Gran Plaza shopping mall. This project is currently in the personnel hiring phase, both for the opening of these two stores in Oporto as well as those in Algarve.
