Tata Starbucks has taken its total tally of outlets in Delhi-NCR to eight by opening its first in Gurgaon on Wednesday.
Tata Starbucks is a 50:50 joint venture between Starbucks Coffee Company and Tata Global Beverages.
The opening of the new store in Ambience Mall, Gurgaon, is part of the company's ongoing expansion in India, where it plans to open 50 outlets within this year. The JV partners have earmarked an investment of Rs 400 crore for the purpose.
Commenting on the development, Tata Starbucks CEO Avani Davda said: "We remain committed to offering a distinct third place to our customers at convenient locations; defining our unique, values-based Starbucks experience."
Starbucks entered the Indian market in October 2012 and currently operates 17 outlets across the country.
