Starbucks comes to Manzanillo

Why they chose Manzanillo at this point I'm not sure. Maybe someone that owns a franchise up north wanted something to do on vacation. Maybe drug money is under invested. The article below just says Starbucks is following their normal pace of rapid expansion.

Anyway, I'm sure this will be open for the winter tourist season and it's located directly across from Walmart. Be careful crossing the street.

MEXICO CITY – Dozens of new Starbucks stores will open this year in Mexico, according to the chain's Mexican partner, part of an overseas expansion plan that could offset slower sales in an oversaturated U.S. market.

Fast-food franchiser Alsea has opened 201 Starbucks coffee shops since the brand first entered Mexico just over five years ago and now stores are popping up around the country at one of the fastest rates in the world.

Sign says Starbucks is opening September 26th. Behind the Starbucks it is rumored they are constructing an Office Depot and a new shopping mall. There certainly is a lot of construction going on in that area, I think they might be true.
