CONTEST: Two $25 Starbucks Gift Cards

| April 15, 2014 | 53 Comments

Last month was Starbucks 20th anniversary on Vancouver Island, and with it they gave back to the Island community with a special anniversary celebration and a $20,000 donation to the Vancouver Island Salvation Army.

That first store 20 years ago is still there today, on the corner of Fort Street and Blanshard.

“I remember it like it was yesterday. We opened the doors on Friday, March 11th, 1994 and over that weekend, we served thousands of customers,” says Kerry Busheikin, former store manager of Starbucks first café on Fort Street in Victoria, now vice-president of Operations for Starbucks Canada. “Starbucks Fort Street store opening was one of the most successful store openings for Starbucks at that time and it was all thanks to the incredible welcome the community gave us. Now twenty years later, many of those same customers are still coming through the doors.”

    My ultimate princess drink is a half sweet pumpkin spice 3/4 full americano with whipped cream and cinnamon dulce sprinkles. I like this drink warm on cold days, and on ice on hot days. I also think that pumpkin spice syrup should be available year round :) Thanks!
