Starbucks Switches It Up

By Cara · August 12th, 2014 · No Comments

Regulars at the Fremont Starbucks will have to change their pre-caffeine route following Starbuck’s move last week. Starbuck’s is now located in the space formerly occupied by Peet’s which has sat empty for the past year. After closing both locations for a couple of days the new location was ready for business last Friday.

The new location will offer all the same Starbucks products including a Clover Machine. However there will be increased seating especially with the addition of an upstairs. This move has also required the Fremont Starbucks to hire additional staff and the store plans to continue it’s participation with the Fremont Art Walk in the new space.

While speaking with the store manager, Nicole, she described a natural progression that led Starbucks to make this move and that they realized it was a good thing long term. After 21 years in Fremont, they understand the importance of the community.

At this new location Nicole aims to have a “great community presence” by building on their pre-existing partnerships with artists, maintaining a notice board, and serving as a space for customers and the Fremont community.

A Grand Opening celebration is being planned for September, you can find out more on the Fremont Starbucks Facebook page.
