Last month, the City of Sugar Hill’s Downtown Development Authority (DDA) approved a lease agreement with Starbucks Corporation for a new location in Downtown Sugar Hill. Starbucks will be part of the new Solis Development on Temple Drive overlooking The Bowl. The Sugar Hill DDA will own the commercial spaces in the Solis development. Starbucks is scheduled to open by mid-2024 and will offer a full coffee shop experience. This new location will be about 2,000 square feet with an outdoor patio and mezzanine. Customers can expect a walk-in only location with mobile pick-up parking located in front of the coffee shop. This Starbucks will not have a drive-thru.

“Starbucks approached us with a unique twist on their proven winning model that goes back to their early days as a local coffee shop. I’m most excited for the community focus and Sugar Hill specific design this operator plans to bring along with the world-renowned Starbucks coffee and drinks. This location will provide an amazing downtown atmosphere with ample space for residents to meet up, work and experience community. This addition to our downtown further proves our commitment to community focused growth and creating amazing spaces for residents and visitors to enjoy,” said Councilmember and DDA member Mason Roszel.

The new Starbucks location will offer a welcoming atmosphere, free Wi-Fi, and a wide selection of coffee, tea, and other beverages. Customers can also enjoy a range of food items including pastries and sandwiches.

“We are thrilled to introduce the trusted Starbucks brand, locally owned and operated to Downtown Sugar Hill. Our mission is to craft a ‘Third Place’ where people can gather, unwind, connect, and experience a sense of community. We embrace the principles that the City of Sugar Hill has envisioned, which aligns seamlessly with our goals,” said Operator Brian Simmons.

Starbucks is a globally renowned coffeehouse company committed to serving high-quality coffee while simultaneously making a positive impact on society and the environment. With an unwavering dedication to ethical sourcing and environmental responsibility, Starbucks continues to redefine the coffee experience worldwide.
