Store Manager – Starbucks
When you think of a great coffeehouse, you think of finely roasted beans hand-selected from the world's best coffee growing countries. You think of exotic flavours that combine delicious taste and mouthwatering texture.Â You think of delicious hot, iced and blended beverages pairing perfectly with freshly baked pastries. You think of Starbucks®.
