SUNRIVER, Ore. -

As part of its ongoing efforts to strategically grow its business, Sunriver Resort has entered into a licensing agreement with Starbucks Coffee Company to operate a store in Sunriver.

The facility is scheduled to open at the end of 2014 and will be located in the Sunriver Village adjacent to Sunriver Realty at the site currently occupied by the Bellatazza coffee shop.

The management agreement with Bellatazza expired recently and they have agreed to manage the existing store through the end of the summer.

“We have enjoyed an excellent working relationship with Bellatazza over the past several years; however, we believe that in our ongoing efforts to improve our business model and accentuate our brand, the opportunity to partner with Starbucks is very exciting and will have a positive impact on our overall business,” said Tom O’Shea, managing director of Sunriver Resort.
