SUMMERSIDE – Multinational gourmet coffee powerhouse Starbucks may be looking to expand to Summerside.

Rumours that Summerside was getting a Starbucks franchise have popped up periodically over the past several years, but it appears the company may be finally ready to set up shop here.

A job ad for a Summerside Starbucks manager has surfaced online recently at the company’s website.

In an emailed statement to the Journal Pioneer, a company spokeswoman said that because they don’t have a signed lease, they can not confirm a franchise is going to open here.

However, once a lease is signed, they would make a formal announcement, they said.

Charlottetown has three Starbucks locations.
