Colin Beattie, MSP for Midlothian North and Musselburgh, recently opened the new Starbucks café at the Dreghorn Eurogarages. The branch is being managed by Ailsa Hall, who lives in Dalkeith and worked for Starbucks for six weeks prior to the opening.
MSP Beattie commented: ‘I was delighted to have the opportunity to open this Starbucks. My warmest congratulations go to Ailsa and her team.
‘They put a great deal of hard work and effort into the store opening and I’m sure it will be a success.
‘I would also like to congratulate Ailsa personally on her tremendous rise through the Starbucks rank. To be opening a store within six weeks of working for a company is a true reflection of her capabilities.’
Gordon MacDonald MSP, in whose Edinburgh Pentlands constituency the café is based, said ‘I wish Ailsa and her team all the best. The café is clearly in great hands.’
