Fortune 500 issue May 2013 – SG Blocks noted as a partner in Starbucks’ new container based drive-through store initiative.
A blend of drive-throughs and drive-through/walk-up hybrids, Starbucks will use a tiny footprint to enter high-traffic locations previously out of reach. Starbucks’ long-term goal is to create store modules that its designers can select based on the location, including the appropriate add-ons (bathroom, patio etc.). Once constructed and delivered, the container-turned-drive through can be operating in about a week. All are being built to LEED certification. Some 60% of all new U.S. stores that Starbucks has planned for the next five years will be drive-throughs. Starbucks’ chief creative officer envisions hundreds of those being from containers.
