Russia welcomes new coffee chain – with a logo some may find familiar…

Starbucks Russia is the successor. Some customers might feel that it has a similar logo.

Stars Coffee was officially launched in Moscow on Thursday. This took place 24 hours before coffee shops opened their doors to customers.

The original brand was , one of many large corporations that left Russia after Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine.

Anton Pinskiy, a restaurateur and Timati, bought the assets.

Starbucks owned 130 stores in Russia, and had almost 2,000 employees. According to Mr Pinskiy, there will be a gradual opening this month and next.

The logo has a new image of a woman holding a star over her head.

Timati stated that they were forbidden from using the Starbucks logo and wanted to maintain continuity.

He said that the branding’s circular shape and “female gender”, contrasts well with its brown, “masculine” colour.

However, it is only brown outside. It is also green in the middle.

“If you compare, then you will find nothing in common,” said Mr Pinskiy.

However, he acknowledged that people’s perceptions could be different.

Starbucks declined to comment about the similarity between the logo and its name.

Stars Coffee imports its coffee beans from Latin America, Africa and Russia, Mr Pinskiy stated. However, suppliers of other products are based in Russia.

“We found other suppliers and the right roasters. The baristas correctly mixed it all, so we are happy.

He said that he believes the product will be competitive.

This venture is similar to , which reopened closed McDonald’s restaurants under a new name and with the same menu.
