Second Starbucks community store opens in South Korea

A second Starbucks community store has opened in South Korea. 

The new venue, located in Seongsudong, Seoul, is described by the company as a “hub for young people and prospective startups to share information about networking and starting their own businesses”.

The store is located near a sizable startup and social-venture community and a major metro station.


Starbucks will host a series of startup workshops for young people at the store via its new Starbucks Youth Startup Entrepreneurship Programme, which is funded by a portion of sales from the store, coordinating with other stores across the market to offer the programme to youth in other parts of the country.

The community space within the store features movable walls and furniture as well as regular cafe seating.
