Uruguay Gets Its First Starbucks

Uruguay is celebrating the launch of its first Starbucks store, which opened on April 11, 2018, in the Montevideo Shopping mall.

“We’re filled with pride to open our first Starbucks store in Uruguay, which bolsters, without a doubt, our solid growth strategy in the region,” said Federico Tejado, Director of Alsea International, an international retail and restaurant operator that exclusively owns and operates Starbucks stores in the country.

According to a press release, one of the most striking features of the store is a mural painted by Nicolás Alfalfa, a local artist from the city of Montevideo.

Alsea hopes to close the year operating at least five stores of the brand, and 10 stores in operation by 2020, generating more than 130 direct jobs.
