Starbucks to open east-side location

March 19, 2018

Starbucks is opening an east-side store.

The coffee giant will be part of a new retail center in front of the George Boom Funeral Home on East 10th Street.

Starbucks will occupy 2,200 square feet on the west end of the retail center and will have a drive-thru. The building has room for two more tenants, including another with a drive-thru, according to Ryan Tysdal of Van Buskirk Cos., who is leasing the building.

“The morning commuter traffic on this stretch of East 10th Street is immense, which makes this site attractive to a coffee tenant like Starbucks,” Tysdal said. “Leasing activity at 10th and Bahnson has been very strong over the last couple years.”

Flyboy Donuts also plans to open this spring in a nearby retail space.

George Boom recently opened in its new, expanded space, and its former building will be demolished soon. The new retail center plans to break ground this spring, and  Starbucks expects to be open this fall.

The coffee chain has other east-side locations inside Hy-Vee and Target, but this is the first standalone Starbucks on that side of town.
