Starbucks is spreading the love to pups – and you this February. Starbucks started an exciting dog-friendly promotion for fur-kids on Valentine’s Day weekend. Dogs that visited selected Starbucks stores were treated to a free Starbucks ‘puppuccino’ and red-ribbon-wrapped dog biscuit when popping into their local Starbucks with their human parents. Even better news? The pup-friendly treat is here to stay!
A uniquely Starbucks treat enjoyed all over the world, puppuccinos are mini cups of whipped cream and nothing else — no coffee, no added flavours, no sugar — just a delicious, snout-licking, tail-wagging treat for a well-deserving faithful friend.
Camps Bay hounds have been in on the secret treat since the Starbucks Camps Bay store launched in December, and this Valentine’s weekend more stores welcomed the addition to their menus. With new stopping-off spots for canine companions and their people in Johannesburg at Rosebank and Melrose Arch, Pretoria at Castle Gate and Menlyn Maine, Stellebosch at Checkers and Florida Road in Durban.
All these street-facing stores offer pup-friendly entry, with water on tap and the chance for their human parents to enjoy some of Starbucks’ world-famous coffee, frappuccinos and other hot and cold delights.
The puppy love doesn’t end after Valentine’s weekend – puppuccinos served with a side of doggie biscuit are set to become a regular item on the menus at these stores, free to every pup who brings their owner in for a cup of their favourite Starbucks brew.
