Coffee giant Starbucks to open Siem Reap store

Starbucks will open its first store in Siem Reap this month, with the local franchisee of the US coffee giant preparing to unveil an outlet in the city’s international airport, the company said in a press release yesterday.

The Siem Reap branch will be the sixth Starbucks store in Cambodia and the first to be located outside of Phnom Penh. Starbucks has been expanding its presence in Southeast Asia.

The company opened its first location in Cambodia in December 2015, and has over 1,000 stores in Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines.

A previous version of this article misstated the date that Starbucks first entered the Cambodian market. Its first store opened in Cambodia in December 2015. The Post apologises for the error.
