SSP Group PLC, a leading operator of food and beverage outlets in travel locations worldwide, has opened its first Starbucks store in Greece. The new store will also be the first location for Starbucks at Athens International Airport, creating a total of 29 stores across the country, since opening the first store in 2002. The store opened on 19th December 2017 in the landside area of the airport, and has stunning views across the runway.
“We are delighted to bring Starbucks to Athens International Airport,” said Mark Angela, CCO of SSP Group and CEO of SSP EEME. “Starbucks is a brand loved by customers in Greece as it is across the globe. The store will be a great new addition to the existing offer at the airport, complementing the other SSP outlets, including our recently opened Eat Greek restaurant which is setting new standards for dining.”
SSP has a long-term partnership with Starbucks, currently operating stores in 15 markets worldwide. “Opening in Greece demonstrates our commitment to bring the Starbucks experience to more customers around the world,” continued Angela.
