Starbucks Chile has expanded its presence in the country with the opening of its first store in Osorno as part of its expansion strategy.

The new location is operated by the company’s authorised partner Alsea.

It will serve customers hot and cold coffee beverages, sandwiches, and desserts.

Starbucks South America director Claudia Aburto said: “We are delighted to bring the Starbucks Experience to consumers in Osorno, expanding our presence in southern Chile. Our store designers have created a space that highlights must-see places in the region, such as the Osorno volcano and Lake Llanquihue, thus delivering moments of connection around coffee that so many of our customers enjoy.”

The Osorno store’s design reflects the city’s history, featuring motifs such as a kingfisher and Maitén leaves typical of the region, the company said.

In 2003, Starbucks made its way into Chile, setting up shop in Santiago.

This latest store is the 163rd Starbucks location in the country, which will be served by 14 employees.

Claudia added: “Growing within the Chilean market is a priority for Starbucks, and we plan to open more stores in the coming months, with a shared commitment to creating local employment opportunities and offering unique experiences to consumers.”

Last month, Delosi, the coffee chain’s operator in Peru, opened its first drive-through facility in Lima’s urban area.

The new El Ejercito store on Pérez Araníbar Avenue in the San Isidro district is the second of its kind in the country, following the launch of the Starbucks Panamericana Sur store in 2018.
