The building, which previously housed the Train Café near the entrance of the San Antonio Zoo, has been transformed into a full-service shop that will serve both visitors and the public.
Starbucks will celebrate the occasion with a ribbon-cutting ceremony starting at 10 a.m., providing free, reusable zoo mugs to the first 100 guests. According to the event’s Facebook page, patrons who purchase a Grande beverage or larger on Monday will receive $1 off their order, while those who bring a reusable mug will receive 10 cents off.
Attendees can expect to see Cowboy, the zoo’s rhino mascot, hear jazz music provided by Trinity University and meet with animal ambassadors on-site.
This will be the first Starbucks in Texas to offer eco-friendly paper straws, echoing its commitment to the zoological society’s ongoing conservation and educational efforts.
Business hours have yet to determined, but the new Starbucks will open Monday from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.
