Busy Chicagoans can get now their coffee in the city’s first Starbucks express format store. The 635-square-foot space in Union Station, which sees more than three million passengers each year, is tailored for customers who want the Starbucks Experience and premium products on-the-go.
Its streamlined menu options focus on high-quality brewed coffee, signature espresso beverages and a selection of popular food items, including breakfast sandwiches.
“Chicago customers have a diverse set of needs,” said Dan Dehmlow, a district manager for Starbucks in Chicago. “On their commute, they may be looking for a fast, efficient experience while at their neighborhood store they may want to slow down and relax. We want to meet our customers wherever they are in their day, with the same meaningful connection and great cup of coffee.”
This is the company’s fifth express format store, following successful introductions in New York and Toronto.
