Do you love Starbucks? Did you know that every day, two new stores are opened, and there are 87,000 drink combinations you can order?!
On Wednesday, December 6th, the largest Starbucks in the world opened in Shanghai, China. The Reserve Roastery is nearly 30,000 square feet and has over 400 employees. They can serve up to over 500 people at a time.
Starbucks’ executive chairperson Howard Schultz said that the store will “immerse their history with China’s rich and diverse culture.” There are 3,000 Starbucks stores in China, with plans to open 5,000 more by 2021.
However, the Shanghai store won’t be the largest store in the world for very long. Starbucks is planning to open a 43,000 square-foot Reserve Roastery store in Chicago, which will open in 2019.
