    I am originally from MA - live in CT now-and love Dunkin Donuts...can not function without it! This past January was the first time I walked from the Marriott to the Dunkin to get my coffee fix, usually we just bring some from home and make it in the room. My husband had to laugh at me-we went all that way and I just had to have my DD! They say "America runs on Dunkin'" Well soon "Aruba will run on Dunkin'"

    Starbucks is good, but I agree with Andrea J. the lingo kinda puts you off

    ya, the starbux will be great for those that are downtown and another option for those that like to pay $$ for a cup of coffee

    those of us from the northeast that frequent aruba, and want "our dunkin" will continue to keep aruba a dunkin donut mecca. ;-)

    for me i go into starbux and get confused...............i want to say "i'd like a large coffee with skim milk and 3 splenda" but no one in there speaks like that......they use words like "grande" and machiatto and "foam".

    and sometimes i like their coffee
    othertimes it tastes like i licked a bunch of week old grounds.
    LOLOL Andrea! I'm with you, girlfriend, re Starbucks. They don't speak my language, and coffee is way too strong.

    I even got a cool travel DD Aruba mug on my first trip to paradise. I pack it and bring it with me every year.

    I actually looked into opening up a Starbucks in Aruba. There are two great places for a Starbucks to do good in Aruba and one would be downtown and the other in Palm beach. The great thing about the person opening the Starbucks is that person will have a sole propeitorship and nobody else will be able to open a Starbucks. So if this person does well with the first one then he or she will do well with the second one. The problem is going to be making a marginable profit since it already has an established competion. When you look at the cost of importing the Starbucks coffee that person is really taking a big chance. Good luck!

    Do you guys think a Starbuck would be successful down there? I think it might only be frequented by tourists.

    We had coffee at Taste of Belgium Cafe, and it was so much better than any Starbucks overpriced beans.

    If the person did his or her market research correctly then there would still not be a Starbucks there......
