Located at one of the strategic locations in Ipoh, the second Starbucks drive-through finally opened at Jelapang Square. Officially launched on June 20, this store marked the 10th Starbucks store in Perak alone.
“Starbucks has been here in Malaysia for almost 19 years. We are very fortunate to have Team Keris Berhad because they are such a great landlord and looking at the traffic and the potential development of Jelapang Square, we are looking forward to seeing it become another successful store,” said Sydney Quays, the Managing Director of Berjaya Starbucks Coffee Company Sdn Bhd.
Together with Sydney to officiate the event was Dato’ Lee Seng Hee, the Group Executive Chairman of Team Keris Berhad. Soon after the VVIP arrival, Dato’ Lee took the media on a quick trip around the current largest Starbucks in Ipoh.
“According to the Public Works Department, statistics show that Jelapang Square’s main road is currently holding the highest traffic impact in Ipoh with 46,000 vehicles passing through compared to Ipoh Garden with just 29,000 vehicles. This was based on a 16-hour period viewing. With such big numbers and of course the MAPS opening, we at Team Keris Berhad are super excited about this Starbucks opening,” added Dato Lee during the media brief.
The first Starbucks drive-through for Perak is located in Sunway city, Sydney has confirmed that the 11th Starbucks will be opening soon in Tasek.
The new Jelapang Square currently is home to a few well known stores including Econsave and Courts. With a few more store openings happening soon, there is no doubt that Jelapang Square will be the next hot spot in Ipoh.
