Starbucks and Disney teamed up to open the first company-operated Starbucks location at Downtown Disney in Anaheim, California. The new store, built for LEED certification, is the first of four to open across Disney properties, serving as destinations for guests to relax and recharge as part of their visit.
This store is the latest of many unique locations from Starbucks in-house design team opening around the world, created to honor local communities. It's filled with brand-new technology and unique design features, created specifically for this storied location, including a 10-foot video installation that tells customers the story and passion behind Starbucks coffee, and a first-of-its-kind interactive touch screen, inspiring moments of creativity for even the youngest visitors.
"This store is a reflection of two iconic brands coming together to offer their customers the kind of high quality experience they expect in a way that embodies the unique passion of each," commented Arthur Rubinfeld, chief creative officer and president, global innovation for Starbucks. "Collaborating with Disney offered us the opportunity to create a unique moment of connection for our customers in a way that evokes the magic that their guests expect."
