That’s right caffeine junkies! Starbucks brand has arrived today in South Africa in time for the 2010 World Cup.
They said you will be able to find them in select Southern Sun Hotels and Tsogo Sun Casinos in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban.
Starbucks have had a long history of purchasing coffee from Africa as African farmers produce some of the most extraordinary coffees in the world, so it only makes sense to bring it here and why not use the World Cup as a nice excuse to do so?
Graham Wood, MD of Southern Sun, comments, “As a brand with over 40 years of experience in servicing the local and international business and leisure traveller, and with our focus on building our portfolio of successful brands, we are excited about the association between our brand and the global leader in high quality coffee. We look forward to being able to offer our guests the large variety of coffee options that will be available to them in select hotels“.
Rob Collins, MD of Tsogo Sun Gaming says, “We are delighted to be partnering with Starbucks to bring the world’s foremost coffee brand to visitors at our entertainment destinations. This partnership is an example of an ongoing strategy that has seen Tsogo Sun Gaming developing relationships with like-minded brands such as Disney to bring The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast to SA, in addition to some leading local entertainment and media brands.“
You can soon get your Starbucks at the Southern Sun Cullinan Hotel in Cape Town and will be also available at Johannesburg’s SunSquare Montecasino Hotel and InterContinental Johannesburg Sandton Towers, and not forgetting the Southern Sun Elangeni Hotel in Durban.
See you all there!
