Seattle's Best Coffee drive-thru-only concept coming this spring to DFW
Starbuck’s-owned Seattle’s Best Coffee is bringing its drive-thru-only concept to Dallas-Fort Worth this spring.
The company announced today it plans 15 Metroplex locations that will open this spring.
The company just launched the concept, which caters to customers who want their coffee on-the-go, in Seattle in the fall and said it selected Dallas-Fort Worth for expansion because the area is one of the fastest growing and most populous markets in the country.
Of the 15 locations, 14 will be company-owned. Each location will hire 10 employees. A job fair will be scheduled for early April, the company said.
Specific locations were not announced.
"We believe that everyone deserves a great cup of coffee, even if they don’t have time to sit in a café," said Frank Sica, vice president and general manager for Seattle’s Best Coffee.
The soon-to-open Seattle’s Best Coffee drive-thrus will also offer a menu of "dashboard-friendly" food choices including coffee, dessert-inspired specialty coffee drinks, egg sandwiches and pretzel melts, and handheld "Anytime Pies." The drive-thru menu offers combos priced under $5.
"Texas has long been a part of our expansion plan and we are thrilled to finally bring Dallas-Fort Worth partners on board," Sica said.
