PETALING JAYA: The largest Starbucks Reserve store in Malaysia has opened its doors in Tropicana Gardens Mall (TGM) to give patrons a taste of branded coffee.
Located on the ground floor and spanning over 6,200 sq ft, the store features two bars. The main bar offers core and seasonal handcrafted Starbucks beverages.
The other bar offers coffee made by six different brewing methods, namely pour-over, Chemex®, siphon, Black Eagle espresso, and Nitro Cold Brew.
TGM managing director Andrew Ashvin said: “Netting support from a global brand like Starbucks and having them open their premium and largest Starbucks Reserve in our mall is an important milestone for us.
“We will continue to raise the bar, alleviating shoppers’ experience in our mall.”
TGM, a subsidiary of Tropicana Corporation Bhd (Tropicana), is also home to many other local and international brands like Thai Odyssey, Qi Odyssey, Village Grocer, H&M, Defacto, HLA, Adidas, Puma, BookXcess, Co-Labs, Restaurant Extra Super Tanker, Royce Chocolate, and more.
“There is something for everyone in our mall. We hope to continue this momentum and will be unveiling more exciting stores soon, such as Jonetz by Don Don Donki and the flagship Sports Direct store,” Ashvin said.
“When we opened the first Starbucks Reserve store five years ago, it created an immersive coffee destination unlike any other,” said Berjaya Food Bhd group chief executive officer and Starbucks Malaysia and Brunei managing director Sydney Quays.
“Now, we are thrilled to be offering this unique and immersive Starbucks Experience to Tropicana Gardens Mall, bringing people and communities closer together.
“We are especially grateful to the Tropicana team for their support, and we look forward to continuing our work with them as we grow the Starbucks business in Malaysia,” he added.
The one million sq ft TCM is located in Kota Damansara, offering seven floors of shopping areas and 300 stores. Connected to the Surian MRT station, TCM is the commercial component of Tropicana Gardens, which also houses the luxury serviced apartments of Arnica, Bayberry, Cyperus, Dianthus and Edelweiss.
