Starbucks opens first store in Cayman Islands

Starbucks has opened its first store in the Cayman Islands at Camana Bay, a 685-acre “new urbanist” town in Grand Cayman. “Our first store in the beautiful island of Grand Cayman marks a key milestone for our expansion in the Caribbean region,” says Tim Grever, Operations Director for Starbucks Caribbean markets. “We are humbled by the warm welcome we have received from all of you and look forward to welcoming customers to this spectacular store and sharing some of the finest coffees from around the world, served by our passionate and knowledgeable baristas.” Cayman Islands-based developer Dart Real Estate says Starbucks joins Camana Bay during a period of growth and development. “Over the past 11 years, Camana Bay has become a thriving town where people want to be – to enhance their careers, to raise their families, and to enjoy the best of living in the Cayman Islands,” Dart Real Estate President of Business Development Jackie Doak says. “Our team is committed to ensure the best experience possible is always offered to the over 2000 people who live and work at Camana Bay. We are pleased to welcome Starbucks to Camana Bay as a new member for all who live, work and visit our community.” The new location is the result of a partnership between Starbucks and Caribbean Coffee Traders Limited, a consortium led by Margaritaville Caribbean Group. “We are grateful for the support we have received from the community,” Margaritaville Caribbean Group Chairman and CEO Ian Dear says. “The beautiful Camana Bay location is a place where families, friends and individuals can connect. It’s these daily connections and interactions that build communities, and we are honoured to be part of yours.” Starbucks in Camana Bay opened its doors on 15 August.
