The coffee giant is preparing to open the third of its Reserve Roasteries in 2019 in the Windy City, the first city outside of Seattle to host a store

As one of the world’s most famous coffee chains, Starbucks is always looking to expand their enterprise in new and exciting ways. They recently announced the opening of their third Reserve Roastery in Chicago, set to open in the Windy City sometime in 2019.

This four-story coffee amusement park will open on the Magnificent Mile, a common tourist spot, and will commemorate the very first Starbucks that opened in Chicago 30 years ago. The store will have various features, including speciality drinks, and will even have an on-site bakery bringing onboard renowned baker Rocco Princi who will craft special pastries to go with their offerings. Howard Schultz, Starbucks Executive Chairman explained the significance of this new store in a statement:

“Having opened our first Starbucks store in Chicago nearly 30 years ago, our first outside of Seattle, this is a very special city for me. At the time, it was a true test for Starbucks because the Chicago customer is so savvy and discerning about their coffee. Chicago is a city of neighborhoods, so we took our time to find an incredible space to match the unprecedented coffee experience our premium Roastery will offer. To be located on one of the best-known retail streets in the world is a proud moment for all of us and we can’t wait to bring Chicago and the world a coffee experience worthy of their most premier real estate.”
