Starbucks Will Open 4 Coffee Shops in Davao

Better late than never, Starbucks is going to open its first coffee shop branches in Davao late this year or next year. Rumor said that its going to be 4 of them scattered in strategic locations within downtown. Now, the thing that is bugging me is why Starbucks came late into action in Davao? The city is known to have numerous coffee shops numbering more than 200. Do you think the over saturation will lose some of its marketability or is it going to be bad news for the old players?

The first branch is located within the Sutherland Complex. The 2-storey building will be the first of the 4 branches. Unofficially, the other two branches are going to be located in the under construction malls: the Abreeza Mall and SM Lanang. No apparent info on the 4th branch just yet.
