Revenues high, profit low

Similarly, the five previously opened Starbucks, all in Bratislava, can be found in shopping malls: Aupark, Bory Mall, Eurovea, Central, and Avion. The café in Bory Mall opened most recently.

A year after the American chain entered the Slovak market, Starbucks' revenues reached nearly one million euros. In 2018, they almost tripled, to €2.6 million. Its profit was €27,000 in the same year.

Starbucks, run by the AmRest Coffee SK company in Slovakia, entered the Slovak market in 2016.
