One of the busiest roads in India- connecting the administrative capital of Maharashtra, Mumbai and the industrial and educational hub, Pune- announces the opening of a brand new Starbucks store today.
The Mumbai-Pune Expressway is India’s first six-lane concrete, high-speed, access controlled tolled expressway. It spans a distance of 94.5 km, which has been fully operationalized since 2002. With the opening of a brand new Starbucks store this week, commuters on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway now have a new pit stop for a quick coffee fix.
The store design reflects a colour palette, handpicked to resemble shades of coffee that create a soothing atmosphere. Some of the store elements include a vibrant yet calm floral pattern and a Terracotta Texture wall that embraces a rustic vibe.
The Starbucks experience rests on premium quality coffee, handcrafted beverages, extensive food offerings and passionate partners who meticulously craft each cup by hand. The store will offer customers an extensive range of Starbucks offerings, including the Starbucks® signature espresso-based beverages like Cappuccinos, Americanos and Lattes, as well as all-time favourites such as Caffe Mocha, Java Chip Frappuccino®, Signature Hot Chocolate and the Caramel Macchiato. A range of Teavana™ teas, including the Starbucks signature tea innovation – India Spice Majesty Blend, will also be available for those who seek a modern and reimagined tea experience. Customers can also try the Starbucks® Cold Brew, latest in a series of coffee innovations highlighting the barista craft and high-quality coffee.
Starbucks opened its first store in Mumbai in 2012. As Tata Starbucks continues to grow in India, so does its commitment to be a positive force in contributing to the future success of the country.
