Food and beverage travel operator, SSP Group, opened its first Starbucks store in Greece last month, 19 December, at Athens International Airport.

Marking Starbucks’s 29th café in the country, it is also the first to open in Athens Airport and the 15th that SSP operates worldwide.

Chief operating officer of SSP Group, Mark Angela, said: “We are delighted to bring Starbucks to Athens International Airport. Starbucks is a brand loved by customers in Greece as it is across the globe. The store will be a great new addition to the existing offer at the airport, complementing the other SSP outlets, including our recently opened Eat Greek restaurant which is setting new standards for dining.”

“Opening in Greece demonstrates our commitment to bring the Starbucks experience to more customers around the world.”
