At the opening of its third outlet in HCM City on Wednesday, Marques told Biz Hub that the two earlier ones were doing "great".

The third, she hoped, would be "fantastic".

It is located at the Rex Hotel on the corner of Pasteur and Le Thanh Ton Streets.

The company hopes to take advantage of the busy location, where many offices, banks, and malls are situated.

Marques said in the day she was looking at fashionistas, business people, Government officials and banking staff to come into the store.

This would be the last store for the year, she revealed. She refused to divulge when and where the northern outlets would open.

Starbucks came to Viet Nam in February this year. —VNS
