Coffee lovers rejoice! With the first ever Starbucks in Bedford-Stuyvesant slated to open in 2018, you will no longer have to travel far for a latte, frappucino, or macchiatto. The new store, sited for the intersection of Marcus Garvey Boulevard and Broadway, will serve as both a cafe and training ground for local, unemployed and out-of-school youth ages 16 to 24 who are interested in developing their entry-level skillset. This unique combination of offerings will help create new opportunities over the next ten years that will further the mission of the Bed-Stuy Gateway BID by bolstering the economic development of our community. Whether you need a shot of espresso or a quick bite, the 2,500 square foot Starbucks will be designed to help you recharge daily. Let the countdown begin as we await the sweet aromas of freshly brewed coffee and iced tea during the grand opening of our very own coffee headquarters at 774 Broadway.
