New Starbucks with drive-through opens in Michigan community

New Starbucks with drive-through opens in Michigan community,ph01

A new Starbucks has opened on Cascade Road in Cascade Township, Michigan. The iconic brand’s new location at 6753 Cascade Road SE and the corner of 28th Street has brought new life to the local neighborhood with the drive-through, outside seating and updated building facades.

Dave Denton of DAR Development, the Tenant Representative for Starbucks, said Starbucks had been looking for a drive-through location on Cascade Road for several years, but had been unable to find a site that could accommodate a drive-through.

When a few spaces became vacant in the middle of a retail center represented by DAR Development, Denton recalled a Starbucks location in Naples, Florida, that had demolished a vacant rental suite to accommodate a drive-through. Denton shared his idea with Darrel Herweyer of DAR, and the plans to bring Starbucks to Cascade were set into motion.

On behalf of the property’s landlord, Herweyer engaged architect Mark Tomasik of Innovative Design and Darren Herweyer of DAR Construction to design, demo and build the new Starbucks location.

A 1,526-square-foot retail space is currently available next to Starbucks.
