“Starbucks and Disney have many things in common,” said Arthur Rubinfeld, president of global development at Starbucks.
“We share a passion for providing excellent customer service, delivering high quality in everything we do, and ensuring that every experience with our brand exceeds our customers’ expectations.”
The company plans to open first of six Starbucks stores at Disney California Adventure this summer.
According to sources, the cafe will be located near the park entrance and will be decorated with Spanish tiles, stained glass and dark wood paneling to fit that theme.
The cups will also be co-branded. The coffee chain said its stores may offer a “Mickey Mouse cookie or two.”
The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed by Starbucks Corp. and Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, a unit of The Walt Disney Co.
Starbucks is the largest coffeehouse company in the world, with more than 19,500 stores in 58 countries, including 12,811 in the United States, according to sources.No tags for this post.
