New: Starbucks Renaissance Marina Aruba

Starbucks Coffee opened its second location in Aruba. It is in the downstairs lobby area of Renaissance Marina Hotel, adjacent to Renaissance Mall in down town Oranjestad. A year ago Starbucks opened its first location in Renaissance Market Place, not too away far from this location.

I’m surprised that Starbucks* decided to expand so soon in Aruba [FYI Starbucks doesn’t franchise*] After all Starbucks finalized a major restructuring in its business just over a year ago by closing down many locations across the United States and Australia. I’m guessing they’re are betting on oversees expansion with strong American customer presence.

Previously this location already sold coffee and breakfast, now it’s been slapped with a Starbucks logo and design. I’m sure sales will increase, as the location is terrific. There are several shops in the area and this is also the dock location for the shuttle boat to Renaissance’s own private island.
