Starbucks goes small in Chicago


Starbucks has brought its small-sized store format to the Windy City.

The coffee giant has opened a 635-sq.-ft. Starbucks Express cafe in Chicago's Union Station. This is the company’s fifth location to date for its Express concept, which features a streamlined menu that focuses on brewed coffee, espresso beverages and select food items.

The other Express stores are located in New York and Toronto.

“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.”
