Brief History of Starbucks in Turkey

Starbucks In Turkey Guide

In 2002, Starbucks Coffee International and its subsidiary Starbucks Coffee Company entered into a partnership agreement with Shata Kahve Sanayi and Ticaret A.Ş. (which is Kuwait-owned). This gave the latter a license to set up Starbucks coffee houses in Turkey under the famous franchise brand. Starbucks then opened its first shop in Bağdat Avenue, Istanbul, an upscale Asian-dominant side of the city in 2003, and the following year two more branches were opened in Ankara. Numerous Starbucks shops have sprung up around Turkey since then.

Murat Çokgezen, an Economics professor at the Marmara University argues that Starbucks has managed to attract customers from different neighborhoods and socioeconomic backgrounds and not just the elite population as one would assume. This helps with Starbucks’ widespread popularity in Turkey. Additionally, back when Starbucks first opened, local coffee houses were far and between and they didn’t offer much variety beyond Turkish coffee. Starbucks filled this market gap and found its niche selling American coffee with a variety of flavors.

How Many Starbucks Shops are in Turkey?

As of July 2022, Starbucks has 536 stores spread across Turkey. Turkey has the second greatest number of Starbucks branches of all European countries, coming after the U.K. Of the 31,000 Starbucks branches worldwide, over 500 are in Turkey, and of the 2,509 Starbucks stores in Europe, 536 are in Turkey. The Starbucks shops are spread over 20 provinces in the country. Currently, the coffee franchise is still expanding and experiencing continued growth. More information about some of Turkey’s Starbucks branches can be found in the following table:

How Much Does Starbucks Pay Its Employees in Turkey?

For most people, they must support ethical companies that treat and pay their workers well. As an American, I would only hope that American franchises would uphold the same good working conditions when operating abroad. Take a look at the salary rates of Starbucks employees working in Turkey (according to Glassdoor):

Position

Approx. Annual Salary Pay (In Turkish Lira)

Consulting User Experience Designer

₺90,968

Barista

₺62,400

Café Barista

₺76,010

Planner

₺54,449

Business Developer

₺99,641

Assistant Manager

₺83,913

Barmen

₺66,000

Server/Waiter

₺74,990

These rates are significantly lower than what their counterparts are paid in the U.S. and some developed countries but it may be argued that other factors may come into play such as labor practices overseas and in this case Turkish labor practices.

Is There a Starbucks Drive-Thru in Turkey?

Do you ever have one of those days where you’re in an anti-social mood or maybe you’re having a bad hair day but still need your coffee fix? Well, I had a number of those during my stay in Turkey. Luckily, Starbucks has convenient drive-thrus. One is located in Caddebostan, Hüseyin Ayaz, Caddebostan İskele Sk. No: 22 D: Apt. B Blok, 34728 Kadıköy/İstanbul. It’s also open till midnight which is fortunate.

Another drive-thru Starbucks can be found at Cumhuriyet, Muhsin Yazıcıoğlu Cd. No:115, 41420 Çayırova/Kocaeli, Turkey which closes at 10pm.

According to local Turks, Starbucks is an affordable option for them when they want to grab a cup of coffee. The local coffee houses are usually pricey with coffee that can be double the price of Starbucks’. As well, it is clear from the menu that Starbucks has tried to diversify its options in contrast to the local coffee shops that mainly sell Turkish coffee.

Starbucks Turkey also has a food selection of breakfast, lunch and snack items as well as pastries and sweets.

Starbucks Delivery in Turkey

Being a New York native, I’d say I grew accustomed to 24-hour food delivery that reaches your door in 20 minutes or less. Even though there is no 24-hour Starbucks in Turkey, I still needed to have my go-to Starbucks order delivered to me when necessary. Luckily, Starbucks Turkey has a few delivery options.

What are the Delivery Options for Starbucks in Turkey?

Starbucks in Turkey Near Me

For the days I was too lazy to get out of bed or just didn’t have the time to go into a physical shop, Starbucks Turkey offered the following convenient delivery options:

  • Yemeksepeti – Via Yemeksepeti.com or their Yemeksepeti iOS and Android apps. This is the oldest and most popular food delivery service in Turkey. It was established in 2015. The minimum order must be ₺75 and delivery time is on average 30 minutes. The app also has English translation options which are helpful.
  • Getir Yemek or Getir Food – Via Getir.com or their Getir Yemek Android and iOS apps. The minimum order amount is ₺50 and there is no delivery cost. English translation is also available on this platform.
  • There is also the option of calling physical Starbucks shops and requesting delivery.
  • Zomato.com and the Zomato Android and iOS apps can be useful resources for tourists in Turkey since this platform offers reviews and locations of nearby Starbucks. It is not a delivery app but is great when looking for a branch to seek a Starbucks delivery from.

The best part is that these websites and delivery methods can be used throughout Turkey. From Denizli to Antalya, they are available at your convenience. It is worth noting that Turkey, just like the U.S., has a tipping culture. It is customary to tip between 5% and 10% of one’s order depending on the total amount spent. The tip is not automatically added to the final bill on the app or website but it is a polite gesture to give to delivery personnel.

What are the Payment Options While Ordering Starbucks for Delivery in Turkey?

There is a myriad of payment options that one can use when ordering Starbucks via delivery methods. Opt for the one that best suits you and your needs. Digital and physical options are available. Check them out below:

  • Online payment via the Starbucks Turkey applications
  • Payment at the door using a card or cash. For the Getir Yemek app, this is only offered when orders are placed with the ‘Restaurant Delivery’ option

According to a lot of comments and reviews online, the Bebek Mh., Istanbul 34342, Turkey (Besiktas) location is the busiest Starbucks in Turkey. Its popularity is mainly due to its scenic views of Bebek Sahili which offer therapeutic vibes when enjoying a cup of coffee.

Of all the coffee chains in Turkey, Starbucks is reported to have a 27% market share of the coffee shop sector. It has a lot of popularity with the youth of the country which is the majority population in Turkey. According to statistics, the most Turks are aged 31 years and below. Starbucks is expected to open over 50 new stores a year in the foreseeable future as it continues to grow in the industry.

Some of Starbucks’ competitors in Turkey are Kahve Dünyasi, Fazil Bey’s Turkish Coffee House, Hacibaba Coffee House, Café Del Mondo, Café Crown, Tshibo, Kocatepe Coffee House, and Barney to name a few. All of these different coffee companies are working on franchising and further expansion across Turkey.

Does Starbucks in Turkey have many career opportunities for its employees?

With Turkey being classified as a developing country, labor practices are not as favorable for workers. Starbucks has stated that these labor practices were challenging to the company upon initial entry into the market. In addition, Starbucks employees in Turkey report unfavorable working conditions, which make their career opportunities in the company look bleak.

Unfortunately, local employees of Starbucks in Turkey are not satisfied with their jobs and have held various strikes and resistances since mid-2021 to protest and communicate their qualms. They use Yemeksepeti and Getir, which are food delivery companies, as channels of protest. One of their grievances is that they work very long hours with short breaks. Managers have been accused of interfering with their breaks and cutting them short. Workers also complain that they do not have clearly defined work descriptions so they end up doing all duties from waitressing to washing dishes and toilets. Hopefully, Starbucks can address their grievances.

Is Starbucks successful in Turkey?

Yes. Starbucks is a highly successful franchise in Turkey. It has 536 shops countrywide and commands 27% of the coffee sector’s market share. This is quite impressive considering it is a foreign company that only entered the Turkish market in 2003. The company’s success can be attributed to the fact that Starbucks was already a famous coffee brand name. Starbucks also filled a market gap when it expanded to Turkey. Local coffee houses focused on Turkish coffee while Starbucks brought in other types of coffee. Starbucks has overcome economic and cultural hurdles to achieve a good level of commercial success. Although the coffee company has achieved remarkable financial achievements, some may argue that the employee dissatisfaction from its workers, which has been widely publicized, can take away from the success of Starbucks Turkey.

Yes. Starbucks Turkey does have a Loyalty Rewards Program for loyal customers. One may track their points via the iOS or Android apps.

Is there a Starbuck Turkey app?

Yes. Just like other countries with the Starbucks franchise, Turkey has a Starbucks app. This app is available on the App Store for Apple devices and on Google Play for Android devices. The app provides tracking for the Starbucks Loyalty Rewards Program points, payment ability for orders and gives information on new products and locations. Many people, however, claim that the application does not work optimally. The app crashes frequently and users experience difficulties when paying through the app.

Does Starbucks Turkey have vegan options?

Yes. A lot of Starbucks drinks are vegan-friendly since the flavored syrups are vegan and Starbucks Turkey branches have the option of swapping cow’s milk for milk alternatives like almond milk, soy milk and oat milk.
