The first ever Starbuck's cafe in Marseilles was inaugurated in the renewed Rue De La Republique in Marseilles albeit that the opening didn't attract too many people. Marseilles, France. 07/05/2010
Yesterday the first ever Starbuck branch in Marseilles was inaugurated in the renewed Rue De La Republique in Marseilles. The inauguration didn't attract too many people and the girls serving coffee to the pedestrians has been accepted with somehow suspicious looks. The coffee culture in Marseilles and the Mediterranean is usually very different then what Starbuck has to offer but the massive rise in tourism in Marseilles probably encouraged the company to make the move.
