Starbucks Jamaica will host a job fair in Liguanea later this month, as it gears up to open two locations in Kingston.

The company is looking for persons to fill barista and shift supervisor roles at the two locations, one in Liguanea and the other on Knutsford Boulevard in New Kingston.

Starbucks first entered the local market, when it officially opened a cafe at Doctor’s Cave Beach, in Montego Bay, last November. During that time, it announced plans to open 15 stores on the island over five years.

Additionally, three Starbucks Coffee are also expected to be added at the Sangster International Airport and will be operated by Express Catering, led by Ian Deer.

The stores outside the airport, are being operated by Caribbean Coffee Baristas, a joint venture between Dear, who is also the CEO of leading restaurant management and franchise operator Margaritaville Caribbean Group and Adam Stewart, the Deputy Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Sandals Resorts International.
