CUMMING, Ga. — The Starbucks on the corner of Bethelview Road and Ga. 9 is going to be closed for 12 weeks while construction of a drive-thru takes place.
The coffee shop is undergoing a complete overhaul and adding a drive-thru window, but that has not stopped loyal customers from dropping by a trailer set up to serve hot beverages.
The temporary trailer sees about 100 customers a day and does not serve any food because of the company’s strict temperature control policy.
Customer Jennifer Barker said the trailer is a great temporary fix from her favorite location, which she’s been frequenting for four years since she moved to the area.
“I’m kind of loyal,” Barker said. “I pass four Starbucks locations on my way to work, but I always come to this one.”
