Caramel frappuccinos, pumpkin spice lattes and peppermint mochas are coming closer to campus in the latter half of 2016.
A new franchise location of Starbucks will be opening on the west end of Bison Block by the start of next school year in fall 2016.
Previously, two other coffee shops have come and gone on the Bison Block, Jitters and Cafe Delight.
Jitters closed in summer 2014.
Cafe Delight moved into the Jitters space, opening in August 2014 before closing Aug. 1 for reasons including slow business and a corporate conflict over its owners’ franchising agreement.
“Starbucks is a different entity than a mom and pop store; obviously, they’re a large corporate store,” building owner Roger Gilbertson said.
Gilbertson added that he has no doubts that Starbucks will be a success.
The store will be the sixth Starbucks store in the Fargo-Moorhead area, as indicated by the Starbucks corporate website.
There are three available parking spots in front of the future Starbucks site, as well as the T-Lots which are available to the public for free after 4:30 p.m. on weekdays and all day on weekends.
