Starbucks Korea said Thursday that it will open Friday a new branch in Guri-si, northeast of Seoul, where visitors will be allowed to bring their pets -- the first of its kind operated by a coffee franchise here. The two-story building is 644.6 square meters with a total of 143 seats. Customers can take their pets to the second floor where private booths and pet seating are prepared. Pets must be on a leash and are not allowed on the first floor where beverages are made. "We hope the Guri branch will be a place where customers build memories together with their beloved pets," said Sohn Jeong-hyun, CEO of Starbucks Korea. (Starbucks Korea)
