Adam Stewart, deputy chairman of Sandals Resorts International who is a part of the joint venture for Caribbean Coffee Traders Limited, emphasised a desire to give back to the Cayman Islands. “Our team is devoted to expanding the Starbucks brand with a shared commitment towards creating opportunities within the community.”
“We are grateful for the support we have received from the community,” added Ian Dear, chief executive officer and chairman of Margaritaville Caribbean Group. “The beautiful Camana Bay location is a place where families, friends and individuals can connect. It’s these daily connections and interactions that build communities, and we are honored to be part of yours.”
Starbucks joins Camana Bay during a period of growth and development, which includes the ongoing expansion of Cayman International School, the construction of a 60,000-square-foot supermarket and Camana Bay’s first for-sale residential offering, OLEA. Camana Bay also offers 700,000 square feet of Class-A commercial space and has nearly 2,500 indoor/outdoor parking spaces for people who visit daily to work and use Camana Bay’s services.
Starbucks in Camana Bay opened its doors on 15 August, 2019 next to independent bookstore Books & Books along the Paseo. It is located near the Rise, which connects Seven Mile Beach and the North Sound, allowing seamless connectivity from “sea to sound” in the pedestrian-friendly town.
