New Menu Delivers Fast, Friendly and Delicious Value

The new menu offers dessert-inspired coffee drinks such as Birthday Cake Lattes, Caramel Candy Lattes and S’mores Mochas that are served up hot, iced or frozen. Brewed coffee gets upgraded to a fully customized experience, offering either original or dark blend and free flavored creamers. The menu also features traditional coffeehouse standards like lattes and mochas. Delivering on the one-stop-shopping promise, customers will see food options across any day-part, offered all day long. These include hearty egg breakfast sandwiches on muffins or biscuits with sausage, ham or cheese; pretzel melts stuffed with ham & cheese, turkey & provolone or spinach & feta and an array of sweet and savory handheld “Anytime Pies,” including Spicy Mac ‘N’ Cheese, Cheesy Egg & Potato and Caramel Apple.

Value Combos with ‘Any Size Coffee’

With the launch of the new store, Seattle’s Best Coffee begins rolling out a new approach to value with four combo meals. Each easy-to-order combo includes a car-friendly food item and coffee, ideal for customers seeking quality, but who are pressed for time. Combos include:

  • Any Breakfast Sandwich and any size coffee for $3.49
  • Any Pretzel Melt and any size soda for $4.29
  • Any Pie and any size coffee for $2.99
  • Oatmeal and any size coffee for $2.79

Breakthrough Design Enables Speed at Every Turn

The small footprint design and LEAN station layouts allows the baristas to assemble orders more efficiently, enabling speed of service that matches industry drive-thru expectations. The small design unlocks new options for retail growth in small, underutilized spaces. In Seattle’s SODO neighborhood, the drive-thru is in a highly visible, easily accessible location on a 5,400-square foot parcel of land at the edge of a retail center that previously was viewed as not able to be developed. The pedestrian- and bike-friendly walk-up window is adjacent to the sidewalk.
