Each location requires an investment of between US$500,000 and US$600,000 dollars. Each new store provides some 60 direct jobs.

“We are very excited about the growth that the brand is having in the country thanks to the great acceptance we have from Costa Ricans,” said María José Gutiérrez, head of Marketing for Starbucks Central America.

Starbucks arrived in Costa Rica in 2012.
