Starbucks Coffee has announced plans to open its first location in Trinidad and Tobago in 2016, representing the company’s 16th market in the Latin America and Caribbean region.
“We are proud to bring the Starbucks Experience to Trinidad and Tobago, marking a key milestone in our continued efforts to expand operations across the Caribbean,” said Ricardo Rico, Starbucks vice president for Latin America operations. “We look forward to opening our first store in the market and sharing our deep passion and knowledge of some of the finest coffees from around the world.”
