Starbucks in Mexico? Of course.

International retailer and coffee giant Starbucks Coffee Company opened its 300th store in Mexico as of December 2010, in partnership with Alsea, the leading operator of fast food establishments QSR and casual dining in Latin America, operating other big-brands name such as Domino’s Pizza, Burger King, Popeyes and Chili’s Grill & Bar.

Howard Schultz, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Starbucks along with John Culver, president, Starbucks Coffee International, joined Starbucks partners in Mexico City for the milestone occasion.

“Over the past eight years in Mexico, Starbucks and Alsea have remained committed to delivering the Starbucks Experience for our customers,” said Schultz. “Our 300th store opening not only marks substantial growth in this market, but it also represents our continued enthusiasm for providing positive impact in our local stores and coffee growing communities in Mexico.”

Starbucks was first established in Mexico in September 2002, in Mexico City at Paseo de la Reforma in front of the Angel of Independence. Starbucks then continued rapid expansion into the Mexico City metropolitan area and within 2 years the streets of Providence saw its first location in the city of Guadalaja. Starbucks continued to sweep across the country with Mexico now being Starbucks largest market in all of Latin America. Starbucks and Alesa now currently operate Starbucks stores in 43 cities across Mexico and employ more than 3,200 employees.

So often it’s the little things, like the availability of your favorite coffee roaster that makes you realize just how far along Mexico has come into the developing world.
