South African-based Taste Holdings – the group responsible for bringing Dominos Pizza to our shores – today announced its partnership with Starbucks Coffee Company, revealing plans to open its first South African branch in 2016.
This licensed partnership means that local coffee lovers can soon look forward to tasting the entire Starbucks range of food and beverages. But Joburgers will be first.
“We’re looking forward to bringing the entire Starbucks experience to South Africa for the first time. That includes 100% ethically sourced Arabica coffee, the full Starbucks menu offering and, of course, beautiful coffee houses,” says Carlo Gonzaga, CEO of Taste Holdings.
The first store will open in Johannesburg in the first half of 2016, with more locations to follow.
