A brand new Starbucks has opened in Ipswich today creating 12 new jobs in Ipswich town centre. 

To celebrate the opening the mayor of Ipswich, Councillor Elizabeth Hughes, hosted a ribbon-cutting at 9am today at the Westgate Street store. 

The first 100 customers were given a gift bag. 

Alok Yadav, Company Director, Kbeverage Ltd, said: “We are excited to open our new store in Ipswich and look forward to welcoming the local community.

"The team will continue to closely follow the latest guidance from both the government and health authorities to keep everyone safe.”
