Peet's Coffee & Tea Opens Flagship Store in San Francisco
Posted on January 28, 2014
Peet's Coffee & Tea has opened a flagship store in San Francisco's Marina District. It is the company's first flagship store and features a unique design. The store is located in a historic art deco building with fir ceiling, concrete walls, walnut floors and recycled street beams. Other features include steam punk lightning fixtures, marble counters and oak cabinets. It has a "living wall" of planets and sustainable building features. The barista bar is located in the center of the new store.
Dave Burwick, president and CEO of Peet's Coffee and Tea, says in a release, "Our new San Francisco flagship elevates the Peet's store experience to a whole new level matching the high standard of our premium coffee that the Bay Area has loved for 48 years. It brings to life our commitment to quality and puts a central focus on the art and passion of our coffee making. Even more, the store’s fresh, contemporary design is unlike any Peet's store in the U.S., uniquely placed in a local, historic building reminiscent of our Northern California roots."
