Starbucks

International coffee shop Starbucks is set to open its first branch in Davao. Once operational, it will be the fifth Starbucks store outside Metro Manila.

Aside from Metro Manila, Starbucks has already established its presence in many Philippine locations namely Cebu, Bacolod, Boracay and Palawan.

Starbucks hits the Philippine shores in December 1997. Since then, it has grown to be one of the country’s popular coffee brands especially in Metro Manila where Starbucks stores are concentrated.

Abreeza Mall, which is still under construction, is the future location of the first Starbucks shop in Davao City.

All popular coffee blends and services of Starbucks will be available once the store is opened. It is also planning to open three more stores in the city.

Starbucks is one of popular brands that first to grab a location in the highly-awaited shopping mall. Abreeza Shopping Mall is already 70 to 75 percent leased out as of this month.

The entry of Starbucks stores in Davao is made possible with the partnership between Starbucks and Ayala Corp. This coffee shop has currently 162 coffee shops in the Philippines as of February this year.

  10. tabirak Says:

    we just want you to wake up tga davao!
    tarungag manage na inyo FUTURE STARBUCKS ha
    kay basin mg close na..
    crowded permi starbucks dnhe cdo..

  11. Genesis Says:

    Whatever,why are you so angry with this stuff..Taga Davao doesn’t care. You don’t own that anyway..

  12. moveout Says:

    @tabirak

    so what kung crowded ang starbucks sa CDO?
    If it doesn’t click in Davao, may problema sa marketing strategies nila, hindi problema ng mga taga-durianland kung magclose!

  13. LeDav Says:

    OK! CDO ang unang ngkaroon ng starbucks! ano pang dapat pag-aawayan? para kayong mga batang nag-aagawan ng babyron!
    Hindi importante kung sino ang naka’unang nagkaroon, importante if how it works to your city! income generating ba xa?…

    Question lang: Di ba merong on-going construction na Starbucks sa may bandang Damosa? if im not mistaken, just correct me if im wrong guys. Kung meron sa Damosa, good thing dalawa kaagad ang Starbucks sa Davao.

  14. white knight Says:

    Hahaha maka lingaw man ang mga bloggers diri. Dili importante kung kinsa na una, what is important is kung mag click ba jud ang Starbucks sa Mindanao. Tama si @mindanaon,@genesis & @LeDav. It seems some misguided CDO blogger want to make this Starbucks really a big deal. Nag katawa lang ang startbucks ninyo kay ning sikat sila samot pero ang pangotana, mo inom ug mokaon ba mo didto, not only once? haha, i’m sure some dili kay MAHAL. Di ba? Sama ra sad na sa AYALA MALL, pakontisay ra gihapon. Haay, ang mababaw naman natin mga undoy ug inday.

    So prestige lang jud diay ato gipangita? Davao & Cdo are both unique cities. But it cannot be denied that Davao City is considered as the third major city in the Philippines next to Manila & Cebu. Correct? Kaya we should be happy instead that Mindanao Cities are not left behind sa Luzon & Visayas in terms of development.

    GenSan is also booming, SM City Gensan will open next & we heard that Starbucks is also planning to put up a store there. Investors are keep on coming such as Microtel, etc. So with or without starbucks, its just okay mo abot ra na sya it won’t make us a lesser citizen.

  16. davao-geeks Says:

    Starbucks Davao has achieved the highest overall opening day sales that was, for the longest time, held by Starbucks 6750 in Makati City.

    and..alam ko na kung bakit nagagandahan ka jan, dhil maraming basura jan na gustong gusto mo. kasi dito sa davao, maraming areas ang malinis. eh if i know, hindi mo kayang mabuhay ng walang basura kaya, cge na nga, jan kna!ROFL!

    sarap talaga pumatol sa mga ignorante. niloloko lang sa pang hahype ng mayor nila.

    pati ba naman starbucks pinatulan pa!ROFL!

  23. dave Says:

    Go go go for Davao!! The Davao coffee shop is not actually the fifth starbucks coffee shop outside MNL, there are two existing starbucks shops in Baguio before Davao. Lets all celebrate for all these cities! Cheers! Go go go PHL!

  24. Dabawenyo sa Mindanao Says:

    Hehehe…I like the discussions here..for the information of the everybody, Starbucks opened its second outlet in Davao at SM City Annex… Davao does not need high rise buildings because of wide open spaces unlike CDO which is constricted by the mountains going to Puerto and Bukidnon.

    Unfortunately, CDO has a problem in urban planning… that is the reason why there were so many Cagayanons perished during the last flood. CDO is helmet free city for motorcyle riders. Tsada CDO!
