The showpiece won’t be ready until late 2018, however. That’s a delay from the company’s original plan to open in Italy this year.
Starbucks’ first foray into Italy will be a big, high-end Roastery located in a historic building in central Milan.
The 25,500-square-foot store, to be located in the turn-of-the-century Palazzo Delle Poste (post office) building on Piazza Cordusio, will open in late 2018.
It will be the company’s first Roastery in Europe, and the fifth announced to date.
Starbucks said early last year that it was partnering with Italian company Percassi to open the first Starbucks store in Italy, aiming for a 2017 opening in Milan.
