Macon Starbuck's To Offer Beer and Wine

Step Aside Coffee, This is a Job For Alcohol

According to Linda Morris of The Macon Telegraph:

"Starbucks moved closer to getting the permitting it needs to sell beer and wine at its Forsyth Road location.

The Macon-Bibb County Planning & Zoning Commission unanimously approved Monday a conditional-use permit to allow alcohol to be consumed at Starbucks' existing restaurant at 4640 Forsyth Road.

“This is part of Starbucks’ evening program where at a certain time of the day they will convert to an evening menu and have some small plate dinner options, and if approved, start serving craft beers and wine,” said Macon attorney George Greer, representing Coffee House Holdings Inc., a subsidiary of Seattle-based Starbucks Corp. “The general time for converting to the evening menu is at 2 p.m.”

The restaurant would be open 5:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily, except on Sundays when it would close at 10 p.m."
