The first Juan Valdez Café in Costa Rica is located in the La Sabana Business Center

QCOSTARICA – Colombia’s Juan Valdez has opened its first coffee shop in the country.

Located in the Sabana Business Center across from the National Stadium, the franchise served its first customers on Wednesday, ahead of the scheduled end of May opening.

The second planned location is in City Mall, Alajuela, when the commercial centre opens its doors later this year.

The Costa Rica operation is franchised to Corporación JV de Centroamérica that also operates Juan Valdez franchises in El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua.
