Stars Coffee is the name of a Russian fast food cafe chain, which was established in 2022 after the American Starbucks has left the Russian market. The chain is based on coffee and snacks, repeating the menu of its predecessor.

Meaning and history

Stars Coffee is a chain of restaurants, opened by a Russian team of businessmen in August 2022, in the former locations of the American Starbucks company. By the time of the deal Starbucks has owned 130 started across Russia, but the new owners, the Stars Coffee company, plan to open twice more locations in the nearest time.

Rapper Timati (Timur Yunusov), restaurateur Anton Pinsky and Senator Arsen Kanokov (Sindica Holding) opened a coffee shop under the new brand. The amount of the deal was not disclosed.

The company rebranded with incredible speed – in a month, preserving all workplaces and locations. The first coffee house for all visitors opened in Moscow on August 19. The rest of the outlets will start receiving guests gradually.

Although the new chain could not use the visual identity and menu of Starbucks, the affiliation of the brand to the legendary American label can not stay unnoticed. The logo is based on the iconic mermaid symbol, modified by Russian standards, and the menu almost fully repeats the list of desserts and sandwiches of Starbucks, but with some slight modifications.
