At the start of this week, there were rumors that Starbucks is all set to open its first outlet in Pakistan, reported by FHM Pakistan.
Sorry folks! It is not true. The story was based on false claims. Starbucks is not going to launch in Pakistan — at least not in immediate future.
Dawn Images claims that the report was false. The media outlet contacted with Starbucks’ press management and learnt that Starbucks has “no plan at this time to open a store in Pakistan”.
This isn’t the first time such rumors surfaced and got viral in Pakistan. In past, there were many such wishful thinking for a whole bunch of brands like Zara, Victoria and even Apple. Neither of them was materialized — and Starbucks won’t either. At least, not at the moment.
