Starbucks in the Philippines

Philippines Starbucks coffeehouse, Makati City

December 4, 1997, the Philippines had its first taste of the Starbucks Experience with its very first branch at the 6750 Ayala Building in Makati City. Starbucks has since won the hearts of the Filipinos.

The opening of the 6750 Ayala store marked an important milestone in our history – the Philippines became the third market to open outside North America.

The tradition of warm hospitality, constant need for connection, and love for coffee – these are the qualities that make Starbucks Coffee and the Filipino people a great culture fit.
