Starbucks Chile has broadened its footprint within the country by inaugurating its first outlet in Osorno, marking a significant step in its expansion strategy.

The new outlet is managed by the company’s authorised partner, Alsea.

It will offer customers a variety of hot and cold coffee drinks, sandwiches, and desserts.

Starbucks South America director Claudia Aburto stated: “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.”

Reflecting the local heritage, the design of the Osorno outlet incorporates elements characteristic of the area, including a kingfisher and Maitén leaves, the company noted.

Since establishing its first store in Santiago in 2003, Starbucks has continuously grown in Chile.

This latest addition is the 163rd Starbucks location in the nation, and it will employ 14 staff members.

Claudia further commented: “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.”

In a recent development in Peru, Delosi, the operator for Starbucks, launched its first drive-through service in Lima’s urban district last month.

Located on Pérez Araníbar Avenue in the San Isidro district, the new El Ejercito store is the second drive-through facility in the country, following the debut of the Starbucks Panamericana Sur store in 2018.
