Republic of Ireland Partnership FAQs

Why are you making this move?

Our Irish business is in good shape and is growing with new stores. Starbucks has been working with Ritea Limited since 2007 and it’s clear from their track record that they have the expertise to successfully take the Starbucks business forward in the Republic of Ireland and maximize opportunities for growth.  Running the business from Dublin with Irish expertise, rather than London makes the business more flexible and able to adapt to Irish customers and conditions.

Are you planning to open new stores in Ireland?

Ritea Limited, as long term trusted partners with a track record of operating fantastic Starbucks stores, are perfectly placed to grow the Starbucks business in Ireland over the coming years.
