Starbucks aims to expand its operations this year to Da Nang, the third-largest city in the country. The new store will be at 56 Bach Dang Street in Hai Chau District.
“We have been asked many times when Starbucks will set foot outside HCM City and Hanoi, and now is the time,” said Patricia Marques, general manager of Starbucks Vietnam, who hinted at more exciting plans of the coffee chain for 2018.
Starbucks has completed five years in Vietnam on February 1. It opened its first shop in HCM City in February 2013 and currently runs 34 cafes in HCM City, Hanoi and Hai Phong.
To mark its five-year anniversary, Starbucks is offering special prices on its menu. Customers can buy any tall-sized beverage at VND50,000 at any Starbucks café across the country. A Starbucks Rewards member can get five times of STARS earned while making any purchase.
Earlier this year, Starbucks announced the return of the Starbucks Reserve® Da Lat coffee after it was first introduced in 2016.
Vietnam Da Lat coffee has a strong flavour, with a hint of sweetness, and is reminiscent of coffee flavours found in Central America.
“Vietnam Da Lat is a popular coffee and is versatile with many brewing methods. It’s great both as brewed coffee in the morning or as delicious espresso, and we are excited by its return,” Patricia said.
