Starbucks opens at Checkers FreshX Flamingo Supermarket

A fresh new Starbucks South Africa retail experience has launched inside the Checkers Flamingo supermarket. Set within the picturesque surroundings of a rolling five-acre heritage village at Modderfontein Junction, this super-convenient kiosk offers a brand new option for the family-oriented denizens of this fun-filled suburb.

This one-time small mining town is now a flourishing lifestyle hub boasting an array of recreational activities for the whole family. Now, with the addition of this latest expression of the Starbucks and Checkers FreshX partnership, here comes another option for locals to enjoy a world-class shopping experience.

The boutique Starbucks kiosk, run by the feisty, fearless and super-friendly barista Sinethemba Buthelezi, features the full range of Starbucks hot and cold beverages and a selection of delicious treats, including brownies, macaroons, and the famous Chocolate Brownie.

The brand’s wide range of premium coffees, warm and friendly service, the speciality iced Frappuccinos and other iced beverages promise to be a big hit with locals enjoying long lazy summer days in this uniquely vibrant lifestyle retail development.

Sinethemba and her team invite customers to visit and enjoy their handcrafted seasonal beverages, including the seasonally sensational Pumpkin Spiced Latte, the indulgently delicious Salted Caramel Latte, crafted from salted caramel-infused milk and espresso shots, or the Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate, a decadent blend of salted caramel-infused milk and Mocha sauce, topped with whipped cream and caramel drizzle. 

Swing by and pull in for a taste of your favourite Starbucks before venturing out to enjoy the lush green surroundings. And while you’re there, ask Sinethemba to brew up her personal fav’, “I’m a simple girl with a sweet tooth, so my ultimate Starbucks treat is the classic hot chocolate!”
