Starbucks and Monoprix announced this week a licensed partnership agreement to open Starbucks stores within Monoprix stores. The first two locations will be in the Monoprix Beaugrenelle in Paris and in the Monoprix GBL in Lyon, and are expected to open before the end of 2015.
“This is a fantastic opportunity to bring the best Starbucks experience that we can offer, to those shoppers who are already looking for the best services and products at Monoprix,” said Arjan Oudejans, vice president Branded Solutions, Starbucks EMEA.
“This partnership underlines our commitment to growing our business in France, with an experienced French retailer with stores in central, prime city locations. Monoprix is the perfect partner to bring the Starbucks experience alive in their stores.”
“We pride ourselves on offering the widest variety of services and products, and the addition of Starbucks is another example of us giving our customers more,” said Dominique Benoit, Head of Real Estate and Franchise at Monoprix.
“We are looking forward to surprising our customers with an innovative and premium service – the highest quality coffee and Starbucks experience.”
