SUMMERSIDE — Multinational gourmet coffee powerhouse Starbucks may be looking to expand to the city.
Speculation that Summerside is getting a Starbucks franchise has popped up periodically over the past several years, but it appears the company may be finally ready to set up shop here. A job ad for a Summerside Starbucks manager has surfaced online recently at the company’s website.
In an emailed statement to TC Media, a company spokeswoman said because they don’t have a signed lease, they cannot confirm a franchise is going to open here. However, once a lease is signed, they would make a formal announcement, they said.
Charlottetown currently has three Starbucks locations in the area.
