The long wait is over.

At 8 a.m. Monday, March 21, 2022, Starbucks –Troy officially opened its doors to the public and, for many coffee lovers, it was not a day too soon.

The Starbucks story began in 1971 in Seattle’s historic Pike Place Market. Fifty-plus years later, Starbucks’ story continues with its opening along the “Pike” at Trojan Market Place.  A large gathering of community and business leaders and coffee aficionados anxiously awaited the opening of the doors and welcomed the drift of aroma that is distinctly Starbucks.
