We confirmed earlier this year that a stand-alone Starbucks was coming to Laramie at the old Teriyaki Bowl location at 3021 E. Grand Avenue. Since that time we have seen an establishment rise from the lot and take form as a Starbucks building. The ‘Coming Soon’ banner has many people asking “How soon is soon?”

A Starbucks spokesperson was able to confirm that the Starbucks will be opening in Laramie on Monday, August 11 at 5 a.m. A grand opening event will be held on August 30, just in time for the University of Wyoming students’ move-in weekend and the day of the first football game of the year. (We will be hosting a concert and pep rally event the day before to celebrate kickoff. For more information on that event, click here.)

In addition to the core coffees offered at all Starbucks locations, this specific store is selected to carry a special collection of exquisite coffees from small farms around the world, carried only in select stores.

The store will employ more than 25 employees and will feature a café and drive-thru.
